    Is using a blow dryer bad for your hair ?

    I always blow dry my hair as it makes it much easier for me to spike up my hair. I want to know if all this blow drying can excacerbate MPB or make you lose your hair ?

    i believe blow drying can be harsh on the scalp

    and as we all know our hair grows from our scalp

    alot of people recommend to towel and air dry air

    i personally towel and air dry my hair

    It may be slightly bad for the condition of your hair but it wont cause hairloss. So generally speaking no.

    it is not your lack of drink, but muscles or face thats the reason. The only reason they'd want you to drink is so you focus on that and dont hit on them I don't even go to partys, at least not till I get more muscle on my arms.

    I used to blow dry my hair but not any more. It irritates my scalp.

    You can get hair dryers with warm and cool settings. This is what I use. And Instead of thinning my hair it gives volume. Use the Warm setting.

    Tourmaline blow dryers are better because they are easier on the hair. I have used blow dryers all my life and I still have healthy looking hair. I don't every use high settings.

    Personally, I would avoid blow drying. Before I started treatments I was blow drying and using hairspray to thicken up the appearance of my crown. It just seemed to make my shedding worse.
