How bad is a hair dryer for you're hair?


Recommended Posts

How badly does a blow dryer have an impact on you're hair loss? I tend to have long hair so need to dry it with a hair dryer? I use it on the lowest setting and set it to the cool setting so it isn't Heaty.

Using a blow dryer won't increase hair loss in terms of MPB/the root of the hair. If used frequently on high heat however, it can damage the hair itself and cause it to become weak and unhealthy and break off. So it's really more about the health of your hair than it is about increasing actual hair loss. (In fact, I've found that using a blow dryer on my hair can help it to look thicker in the crown area, so it has it's advantages as well.)

Thanks guys! I also find that a dryer makes my hair look thicker which is another reason why I use it haha. I tend to go over the top of my scalp with a dryer for a small amount of time and focus more time on drying the side and back of my hair
