Last week DD had a cold, the weather was freezing, DD has long-ish hair and so after her bath my mom, who was visiting, decided to blow-dry her hair a little before DD went to sleep. In the past, DD has been scared of the blow dryer and so I was hesitant to use it, but now at 2.5 she is okay with it. Since then, I've dried her hair a couple of times, but only for a few minutes and on the lowest heat setting, just so her hair isn't damp when she goes to bed. I'm not planning to do this all year round, only when it's cold and esp. when DD is sick. DH, who is usually an "everything will turn out fine" type of person, was a little surprised when I told him that I dried DD's hair. He is concerned that the noise from the blow dryer is bad for DD's hearing.
So we decided to do a poll and see what the BBB parents think
Do you ever blow-dry your toddler's hair? Why or why not?
ETA: Does anyone know if DH's concern about noise is valid or where I could find more information about this? Thanks.
