If you’re looking to specifically blow-dry just one area of your hair, try to use cold settings in your blow-dryer as it is safer for your follicles.

Constant friction will also cause breakage in your hair follicles and can sometimes cause traction alopecia.

If you’re wondering what to use to dry your hair instead of a towel, you can use a soft T-shirt. T-shirts are a lighter material compared to towels and will not only absorb excess water. It can also reduce frizz. Just make sure that you dry your hair using a T-shirt gently and not aggressively to prevent any unnecessary friction.
