As per the experts, the hair dryer should be used from a distance of 15 cm with continuous motion for lesser damage.
Combing of wet hair may result in increase of hair fall as the pores are soft and the tugging from the comb causes the hair to come out of the scalp. So comb your hair only after the hair is free from moisture content and then comb gently.
