How to Dry Your in 5 Minutes Without Heat

If you’re a conscious person about your hair and don’t want to run around with it all wet and drippy, there are some useful methods you can try. Rather than damaging your hair with the use of a blow dryer, you could try some simple ways to dry your hair without heat. Some of them may seem a little unorthodox, but they are the best ways to perform such a task without the worry of frizzy, broken or knotted hair. Check out these 7 clever ways to dry your hair without using heat.

7 Ways to Dry Hair Without Using Heat

Alright, here’s the deal. There are at least 7 ways that you can dry your hair without the use of heat. Some of these tips can cut drying time in half and these tips are incredibly effective, leaving you with more time to check yourself over in the mirror or get into bed without ruining your locks.

1. Go Old School and Towel Dry It

Of course, I’m going to start this off with a good old-fashioned technique! This particular way of drying your hair is probably the simplest. The most effective way, however, is to use a microfiber hair towel. Rather than just rubbing it back and forth while messing with your hair cuticle, the microfiber will soak up twice as much water without making a ton of frizz. You can either wrap it or gently squeeze it and then allow it to air dry the rest of the way. This is probably the best way to dry your hair without the damaging effects of heat.

2. Salon Style

Do you remember walking into the salon as a kid with your mom, aunt or grandma and seeing those hair dryers attached to the chairs? They’re called bonnet hair dryers and they’re a convenient way to dry your hair without having to hold it up to your head. They let you multitask, freeing up your hands for applying makeup or doing your nails. They’re also much better for your hair than traditional hair dryers are. They provide even heat distribution, they’re quick and offer a relaxing experience and the best-they’re portable and travel-friendly. There are many different brands on the market with different specifications. published an in-depth guide on this topic. Check out the post and do your research before making your purchase.

3. Plop It

If you’re a curly-haired gal, this technique will help dry your curls faster and will help them keep their natural, beautiful shape. If you aren’t familiar with plopping, it’s quite simple. First, you’ll want to toss some leave-in conditioner or styling cream in your hair, and I mean saturate it. Next, take a cotton T-shirt and lay it flat with the sleeves and neck closest to you. Stand over the T-shirt and flip your hair over so that your hair is “plopping” on it. Take the bottom of the shirt and hold it at the nape of your neck and roll the rest toward your face. Then, tie the sleeves in a knot. Leave it like this for 10 to 20 minutes as you do the rest of your morning or nighttime routine. Once complete, take out your curls and dry them with a diffuser or let the air-dry.

4. Use Conditioner

Yes, you read that right. Adding conditioner to your hair can reduce drying time. Not only does conditioner help make your hair smooth and soft, but it can help your hair repel water. The reason this happens is because conditioners contain ingredients such as silicone and fatty alcohols that stick to your hair. This allows the water to slide off the hair rather than soaking it up. There isn’t a super huge difference in drying time, but it’s a healthier alternative. Conditioner also offers other benefits to your hair such as damage repair and it will help heal dry hair issues.

5. Use A Brush

Hold on a second! Don’t run to the dollar store just yet. You can’t use any brush that you find in the drawer or on the discount rack at your local market. There are brushes that use special microfiber bristles that help soak up the water and moisture from your hair, reducing drying time by a significant percentage. Sure, regular brushes can do this, but most of them are just going to move the water around from one part of your hair to the other. It has the same concept as a microfiber towel, but is a more compact version.  

6. Shake Your Hair Dry

This is another very simple way to get your hair dry. It might not be the most time-saving method out there, but it works without any damage being done. In order to do this the right way-yes, there’s a right way-you need to first remove excess water from your hair by blotting it. Turn your head upside down and shake it. Use your fingers to separate and fluff the roots. Gently hold your hair and shake it up and down then bend over and shake your head all around. The motion of shaking allows air to circulate around the strands and breaks up clumps of water-filled hair.

7. Sit in The Sun

If you have some extra time during your morning routine, take your hair for a stroll in the sun. Before you head outside, make sure that you remove any excess moisture and water from your hair. Shake your hair, as mentioned in number 6, and fluff it at the root. This helps your hair dry faster. An added bonus to this is if it’s a windy day, the air moving throughout your hair will allow it to dry a lot quicker. If you’re looking for a natural way to lighten your hair as well, this method will help with that. The sun bleaches hair by destroying the melanin, giving it a lighter appearance.

Expert Tips

Here are some quick expert tips for drying your hair without heat:
·         Roots Are the Focus: The most damaged part of your hair is the roots and they’re also the most porous, making them quicker to dry. If you start with the roots and focus on the area where water tends to stick around, it can reduce your overall styling time.
·         Super-Absorbent Towels Are Your Friend: These types of towels are designed to soak up water better than the standard towel. Just be careful when using this method as it can damage your hair due to roughed up hair cuticles.
·         Dry Shampoo: If you are strapped for time, skip the hair washing and opt for some dry shampoo instead.
·         Divide Your Hair: Dividing your hair into sections can help dry your hair more efficiently and effectively. It sounds like a lot of work, but it’s worth it.
·         Start at The Bottom: Dry your hair starting with the bottom layers. This will prevent the top layers from soaking up the excess water after you’ve already dried them.


There you have it, folks. Those are some of the most effective ways to dry your hair without using damaging heat. You may not realize it, but every time you crank that blow dryer up on high and toss your hair around, it’s doing more harm than good. If you use the tips we provided for you, you’ll have healthier hair and more time to do your routine rather than rushing around.
