Don’t burn your hair with the blow dryer!

Posted in Answers on January 7th, 2013 by Reagan


I have but a mere moment to spend on blogging this morning. But I feel that a quick, yet important tip should be shared. You know…with it being cold outside, I like to blow dry my hair a little more often so that I don’t wander this city with icicles for hair. (am I right NYC? the last few weeks have been freezin’!)

However, I will not stand for blow dryer damage. So here is my quick little tip to make sure you’re not killing your hair with your blow dryer: Don’t touch your hair with the nozzle. That’s right, get close to the hair, but don’t ever let the nozzle touch your hair. You will torch the poor cuticle.

That’s all there is to it. Rough drying, round brushing, whatever it is. Keep a little space between the nozzle and the hair.

This photo has nothing to do with anything. And it’s old as the hills. But it’s from when I went to Argentina last spring and it was warm and beautiful there. This is the type of thing I dream of when I’m blow drying my hair during these freezing, grey months.

    A friend of mine literally burnt off a big section of hair with the hair dryer! She has long hair and lost about a 1/2 inch in thickness and about 8 inches of length. Please be careful!

    I hate blow drying my hair! But I, like you, also hate freezing to death in the cold with long wet hair (my ponytail is 16 inches, so yeah, icicles!). My solution is usually to shampoo at night and sleep on it damp, but that makes a helluva mess to deal with in the morning!

    Gundam is perhaps the first merchandise-supported anime series, and is rather the odd man out. It was these hobbyists who kept Gundam alive in Japan and in the US, with their model shows and contests at conventions and their support of the franchise financially. Gundam is a prime example of the fans creating demand for more story and more mecha, instead of anime studios and media corporations artificially creating demand.
