Since Chaz mentioned how damaging regular towels were to your hair, I switched to microfiber hair towels. I was amazed how well they worked! My drying time has dramatically decreased and I found using the lowest setting on my hair dryer works perfectly.

Where do you get microfiber hair towels? I tried the Turbie Twist, but it was too small for my big ol' head!

I only use low heat when/if I blow dry. And I never blow dry to complete dryness- I leave it a tiny bit damp.

Re: Do you blow dry with medium or high heat?

I have always started with high heat and my diffuser while I get the bulk of the moisture out. Then I move to medium with the nozzle.

I will have to try a lower temp the whole way sometime. I fear it may take too long to dry though. I currently need about 20 minutes to do a basic blow dry. More, if I am doing a round brush styling/good blow out.

Hot, high speed so it dry's fast for the most volume and spray it right away before it flops.

I found a two pack at Costco for $10. They work great. The first towel I use after I get out of the shower. The second shower cap I turn inside out and wear to bed when I use the treatment oils. This way, it saves my bed linens from any oil stains. Not the sexiest thing, but my hair looks fabulous in the a.m. Wink

I don't use them. Blow dryers damage your hair.

I've always used high heat because I'm impatient. But lately I've tried medium heat with the nozzle. Takes longer but it makes a tremendous difference! My hair is silkier, not fried looking. Worth the extra time!

I think it's high heat and low fan speed. But yes, moving, moving moving.

I've never used high heat, only medium and finish with cool and usually I don't dry it all the way
