Cambridge scientist reveals the perfect way to dry your hair – with minimal damage

Cambridge academic Dr Tim Moore has dedicated his life studying what you should and shouldn’t do when washing and drying your hair. Here’s a round up of his tips and advice:


  • Don’t go to bed with your hair wet – it could cause split ends
  • Letting your hair dry naturally is more damaging than blow-drying
  • Never brush your hair when wet – use a comb
  • Towel dry your hair before drying – gently scrunch with a towel
  • Only use straighteners or curling tongs on completely dry hair
