Drying Hair Quickly?

jcfrizzlejcfrizzle Posts: 90Registered Users
So school is coming back and that means that I only have so much time to do my hair in the morning! I have to shower everyday because I work out everyday and it would be gross if I didn't. I also style my hair when it's soaking wet, but I need help on drying my hair quickly. I have a microfiber towel and a diffuser but I want my hair to go from soaking to pretty much dry in about 10 minutes. Any tips that won't leave my hair a big frizz ball?
Love my auburn 3b/3c curls!! Favorite products are Treseme Naturals conditioner and DevaCare ArcAngel(<---miracle for definition!) I really just want to GROW MY HAIR OUT!! It's not really working...

    What time of day do you work out?

    If you work out at night then take a shower and style it and sleep with a turbie twist on! It's help plop the curls and it'll be damp the next morning, but should be dry in about 10-30 min. That's my morning hair routine for school since I don't want to go to school with hair wet. Shower at night, use product in wet hair, and turbie twist! Works charms and isn't uncomfortable to sleep in

    You will likely damage your hair trying to go from soaking to dry in ten minutes. Many people shower their body without washing their hair, you might consider dry shampoo. Not sure if you literally mean you train seven days a week but if so that is not recommended, active rest/ recovery days are critical.

    I run in the morning unfortunately :(. It's way too hot where I live to run any other time so I have to get up really early to do a run. But I think I'll try plopping! I hear that it's a great way to dry hair fast and I can leave it on to dry longer than 10 min while I do my makeup and morning routine! Thanks!

    Thanks for the concern! No I don't train everyday, but I run for about 20-30 min a day to keep healthy! And I do actual training only about 3-4 days a week. And I think I'll try plopping for a while(more than 10 min) while I do my makeup and routine so that when I diffuse my hair I won't damage it from drying too quickly! Do you think that could work?
