Day 8 Advent Reveal: Redken No Blow Dry Cream

Day 8 Advent Reveal: Redken No Blow Dry Cream

When it comes to voluminous and perfect hair, there’s usually only one avenue you can take: the big, bouncy blow-dry. However, constant heat styling can cause damage, which in the long-term, will leave you with less than desirable locks. The new buzz-phrase in town? Air dry your hair.

Why Air Dry Hair?

Air drying your hair can reduce damage and breakage caused by heat styling. Regular use of heated tools causes dehydration, split ends and dullness, so finding a way to let your hair dry naturally and still look good, is essential to keeping it healthy.

Top Tips To Air Dry your Hair to Perfection

You might want to blow-dry your hair for that very special occasion, but for everyday wear, air drying your hair is the new way to go.

Below are our top tips for perfecting that naturally done look.

Apply the right product

Using the right products before letting your hair dry naturally will ensure it looks perfect. Opt for volumising shampoos and lightweight conditioners, as well as pre-shampoo treatments that help to boost the overall lift of your hair.

We love Redken’s High Rise Volume Shampoo, which does exactly as it says on the bottle to encourage lift and volume at the roots.

Follow with a post-washing product that helps to keep your hair looking flawless without the heat. Redken’s newest venture is the No Blow Dry Cream, which has been formulated especially to work with your hair as it dries naturally.

There are 3 different formulations for fine hair, medium hair and coarser, more curly types. They help to reduce drying time and encourage volume and texture, so your hair looks as if you have just stepped out the salon.
