Street Style Stars Make the Case for Air Dried Hair

Wash and wear. Yeah, it's that easy.

Let’s be honest: Embracing your air dried hair texture will make your life much easier. We are all about quick and effective styling routines that deliver the trendy results we’re looking for these days. And the air dried hair looks we saw on the streets of NYFW fully embraced this concept. Chic, effortless, and full of that off-duty model ease, air dried styles assume the wearer has hacked the kind of confidence we’re all after. The results are somehow bold, sexy, and magnetic while still remaining relatable. And the truth of the matter is, you can achieve this style using just one hair product. Opt for an oil, a detangler, or a texture spray to take your air dried hair to the next level.

Texture Spray

Firstly, consider using a texture spray to define your waves and give them some added hold. Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray is our go-to sea salt spray for those days when we want to create a look that actually takes minimal effort. Simply spritz this texture spray through your damp hair and go.

Leave-In Detangler

On the other hand, many women with thicker, wavier hair types find that their hair easily winds up in knots – especially at the base of the neck. Dove Absolute Curls Leave-In Detangler is the one-stop-shop for those of us who need a hand in the detangling department. Much like the texture spray, you can simply spritz this product into damp hair and let it hair dry. Rather than delivering texture and hold, this product will smooth out the natural curves of your texture for a slightly polished finish.

Hair Oil

Lastly, if you are more of a hair oil kind of girl and require another level of moisture for your strands, you will want to consider Love Beauty And Planet Hope And Repair Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang 3-In-1 Benefit Oil. This moisturizing hair oil will deliver hydrating and nourishing benefits to your strands as they streamline your waves for an easy-to-wear air dried style.
