i wish i had a better answer for this!
until i moved into brooklyn i had time to dry it and put it up in the morning but now that my commute it over an hour long and i have to get up at 4, i just wash it every morning and let it air dry on the way to work.
my hair is very fine so it’s hard to get a lot of volume without blowdrying it. now that i air dry, i make sure i bring hairspray with me for later (hairspray is a lifesaver) in the morning and i pin it up like a crazy person with bobby pins while it dries on the subway.
haha there’s no way that i’ve lost weight…I think I am just gettin older.
