While air drying your hair is technically something you can do no matter the time of year, it tends to be more the norm in the summer months. That's partly because bitter cold temperatures can literally leave you with a mess of frozen icicle hair if you don't blow dry before stepping outside, but it's also because we spend more time in the pool or at the beach (aka when toting a blow dryer around just isn't going to work). Also, sometimes it's just easier to let your hair slowly dry after showering without enlisting your army of heat styling tools.
So, looking forward to more air drying as the seasons change? Each of the products in this lineup will help you lean into your air-drying goals by nixing frizz, softening locks, and expediting the drying time.

You've heard of hair products that cut down your blow dry time, but this genius product actually expedites the air drying time by nearly half. And at the same time, it also seals the cuticle to nix pesky frizz, provides a bit of touchable texture, and even protects your hair against UV damage.
If air drying your hair leads to limp locks then you'll benefit from a product that actively works to boost texture, such as this leave-in styling cream by Matrix. It's specifically intended for air drying your hair and helps control frizz and flyaways while nourishing, adding adding volume, and providing texture.
Pai Shau is known for its lineup of super-hydrating, tea-infused products, so it's an absolute savior for parched hair. Whether you've hit the blow dryer and curling iron too many times recently, have colored or processed hair, or simply need a pick me up, this hard-working leave-in product can be applied to towel-dried hair to smooth and detangle, nix frizz, amp up luminosity, seriously hydrate, and protect from pollutants.
You'll definitely notice a difference in the quality of your air-dried hair after using this innovative formulation: Think of it like a quasi-leave-in product. While still in the shower, you apply it to freshly washed and conditioned hair and then very lightly rinse so that some of the product remains. It seals the cuticle, enhances volume, and makes your hair ridiculously shiny and soft.
