The answer is NO!
“If done correctly, it is actually better than towelling dry or just letting your hair dry naturally.” According to a feature titled “Tress Distress” dated 21 Nov in Urban under The Straits Times, the consistent heat applied in the same direction smoothens hair cuticles and gives you shiny hair. It also sets hair in place and seals in moisture.
In fact, the article states that towelling your hair dry is akin to scrathing your skin with your nails as it roughtens up your hair fibres and air-drying promotes frizziness. However, don’t try to style completely dry hair with a hairdryer as heat on dry hair is damaging. Pat your wet hair with a towel before blow drying.
So yay to blow drying because I’ve been doing that everyday for the past 15 years and my hair certainly doesn’t look damaged or dry.
