Forget shampooing, conditioning, applying Moroccan oil or anti-frizz mousse, the worst thing about washing your hair is having to spend ages blow-drying it afterwards.

There is nothing us ladies hate more than giving up our Netflix time at night to spend 40 minutes sitting in front of the dressing table with a sore arm from holding the hairdryer.

However that doesn’t need to be the case anymore as a way of nearly halving your blow-dry time has been revealed and all it takes is some persistence and a handful of kitchen paper.

There’s actually a way you can half your blow-drying time.

Yes, you read that right, the paper towels you use to dry your lettuce and soak up nasty spills in the kitchen is apparently a hidden saviour for getting your mane bone dry in jiffy time.

According to Allure, the kitchen staple is the best way to ensure you don’t have to dedicate at least one hour every night to preening your hair into an acceptable style.

You simply wrap your hair up in a towel when you get out of the shower and use the paper towels to soak up any excess water still left on your strands.

Apparently kitchen paper is a saviour when it comes to blow-drying your mane.

This woman used tinfoil in the place of a curling iron.

The publication claims it knocks a good ten minutes off your drying time, leaving you with more time to tune into the new season of Suits before you slip off to bed.

Other household hacks we’ve heard before are using sticky tape to create the perfect eyeliner flick, lemon juice to naturally highlight blonde hair and avocado for the perfect hair mask.

A few months ago we saw a woman create perfect curls by using aluminum foil and a hair straightener.

Blogger Helinhair, took to her Instagram page to share the secret to her enviably wavy locks, demonstrating just how easy it is to get salon-worthy tresses with very little effort.

This was the result of using foil in place of a curling iron.

The Norwegian hair stylist also claims that using tinfoil is not only cheaper than investing in a curling iron, but also makes the curls hold for longer.

She waited until the foils had completely cooled off and were cold to the touch before taking them out.

Then she shook out the curls and spritzed them with hairspray, claiming they lasted all day.
