If you have coarse hair:
The key to air-drying coarse hair is to use the right products. “If your hair is coarse, you need a product that will hydrate and soften the hair,” says Lauren Thompson, stylist at Nunzio Saviano Salon. “I love Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. It’s heavy enough to hydrate and control hair without making it look greasy.” Lorean Cairns, Fox & Jane cofounder and creative director, suggests applying a smoothing cream to damp hair. Try: Pureology Smooth Perfection Intense Smoothing Cream or Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner For Coarse Hair. Avoid touching or brushing hair too much until it dries completely, which can cause frizz. Check out some genius ways to tame frizzy hair.
If you have fine hair:
Looking to add body to limp locks? “When it comes to air drying fine hair, remember that less is more,” says Cairns. Apply a thin layer of a texture product, such as R+Co Dallas Thickening Spray. Then either wrap hair into two small buns (using scrunchies) to create waves, or allow it to dry au natural. These are the style rules for people with fine and thin hair.
