It’s no secret that our time is more precious than ever before, and it can feel like a constant battle to fit everything in by being as efficient as possible – right down to the simple things like drying your hair in the mornings.

We can’t magic you a couple of extra hours in the day, but thankfully the beauty brains at Marie Claire can give you some guidance in cutting down the time it takes you dry your mane.

Keep reading for your handy cheat sheet to nailing a quicker blow dry…

Wrap up with a microfibre towel

That’s right, special hair towels exist and they’re a great investment in your routine. Not only are they gentler on your mane, but these ultra absorbent towels help to draw water from the hair and minimise frizz – a great investment your locks will thank you for.

Simply wrap your hair up for a few minutes and allow the towel to work its magic before you pick up your hair dryer.

Try a blow dry spray

Thank the hair gods, because there is a whole host of spritzes and sprays out there that can really reduce the time it takes you to blow dry your hair – a real game-changer if you have especially coarse or thick hair.

Spray liberally through your damp hair and enjoy the quicker drying time that results.

Use an ultra-fast hair dryer

It’s true what they say, a man or woman is only as good as their tools, so you’ll need a powerful dryer to save on those precious blow dry minutes. The new ghd Helios Hair Dryer – their fastest and most lightest model yet – not only offers you faster drying, but its smart Aeroprecis™ technology in this tool enables more control and precision, meaning 3 x smoother hair and 30% more shine.

It comes in four different colour options: black and nickel, white and rose gold, plum and rose gold, and ink blue and gunmetal, so you’re spoilt for choice when picking a tool that goes with your home. We love it so much, it made it onto our best hair dryers list.
