How to Blow Dry Hair + Caring for Natural Hair

Today I’m going over how to blow dry hair and a couple caring for natural hair tip and tricks!

I try to avoid using heat as much as possible, but I do use the blow dryer every once in a while.

I’m not against using heat and I do use heat occasionally on both mine and Bunny’s hair.

I never use heat as a crutch or to be lazy, but just as another style choice.


Look Who Got Their Hair Trimmed!!!

Speaking of heat, I did use the blow dryer on Bunny’s hair last night.


Because I wanted her next style to really show off her length (look for that style this coming Friday) AND so I could give her ends a trim.


You don’t. Her ends were starting to feel brittle; despite the fact I always deep condition and moisturize them. So they had to go.

Here’s a short video of that:

A few people contacted me and asked me why I’ll use heat and not a relaxer. Well because relaxers didn’t work for me, my mom, or any of my sisters. And as a result, we all have natural hair now and I love that.

Relaxed hair (for us at least) was weaker and didn’t hold braids very well. My relaxed hair often looked greasy, which is a pet peeve of mine.

I’m not entirely against relaxers, but I’m not for them either. A lot of times people damage their hair, stun its growth, and suffer a lot of breakage because of the relaxer, which is why I don’t like them.

Out of all the black people I know, I know of one girl with healthy, long, relaxed hair. Just one. So in my mind, relaxers don’t really work.

With all that said, let’s focus a little more on the matter at hand. The only thing I find remotely hard is the whole detangling part.

Bunny has a lot of hair and a very tight curl pattern so some days it’s hard to be patient and gentle. It really is important though and a huge part of length retaining.

Remember, be gentle!

Moisturizing daily, little-to-no heat, protective hairstyles, and detangling properly. Those are the biggest things.

Get those four things right and you WILL be seeing a difference in the overall health of your hair. I hope I explained how to blow dry hair clearly enough!
