 You don’t have to completely swear off blow-drying. Just do it right. Your hair will be much better off if you start blow-drying when it isn’t dripping wet. Blot, don’t rub, wet hair with a microfiber towel, which is less damaging than the classic terry-cloth turban. Use a heat-protective spray or serum.

Hairstylists love to say you can reduce the times you shampoo to three times a week. But if you have fine and/or oily hair, you don’t have to walk around looking dirty. Shampoo daily, but thoroughly drench your hair with water before you lather up. Then concentrate on just the hair two inches closest to the scalp, since that’s where sebum collects. And rinse really, really well under the coldest water you can stand.

Repeat after us and your hair will thank you: I will not overexpose my hair to the flatiron. Read the manufacturers’ instructions and don’t exceed the maximum suggested time. It’s typically about five seconds. Using a flatiron only once a week and swearing off all but irons with ceramic plates. Fans of chemical straightening should consider switching to a keratin treatment, which adds a smooth coating to each strand but doesn’t mess with the cortex.

If you have the time and money to hit the salon every four weeks, great. Everyone else? Just get a good deep conditioner. The ingredients aren’t that different from those in your daily conditioner, but they’re much more concentrated and they leave behind a smoothing film that won’t wash off for days.

Stretching your hair with a brush while you incinerate it with a blow-dryer is not so hot for your hair’s health.
