What Lazy Girls Should Know About Blow Drying Hair

Fact: Blow drying your hair seriously sucks. It can add up to an hour of extra time to your beauty routine, and personally, I'd much rather sleep in than deal with that in the morning. But there's one thing you should know about blow drying that can make the arduous process a whole lot less painful. And by less painful, I mean cut your time in half. Meet your new best friend, blow dry spray.

If you blow dry your hair frequently, you probably already use a heat protectant (and if you don't, you definitely should), but there's another spray worth adding to your routine: a blow dry spray. There are several products out there to help speed up dry time, and each touts their own unique benefits, but they all basically work the same, sealing the hair cuticle, reducing porosity, and therefore cutting drying time way down.

Another benefit to using these sprays? Many of them also act as heat protectants, so if you don't want to use two products, you can definitely find one that will serve both purposes.

If you want to sleep in a little longer in the morning, shop these seven blow dry sprays to help your hair dry a whole lot faster.
