As there will always be damage done to your hair when it comes to blow drying it, there will nearly as much damage caused by using cold air, rather than hot.

Drying your hair any other way than the natural way is damaging. but using the cold setting isn't as bad as the hot setting.
Use a good shampoo and conditioner with heat protection spray before you blow dry or use any other appliances. Just make sure your hair is conditioned well, and you should be fine.

Well overdrying your hair can damage it as it causes the strands to dry out and break. i recomend that you let your hair dry naturally(rubbing your hair with a towel also damages hair) i suggest puting it up in a towel then blowdry the rest half way so you use the dryer as little as possible. Hope i helped Love Nikki-Marie xxx

Heat causes the most damage.
Cold air does not cause as much when you blow dry it. Hair straighteners, and other hair devices like that cause severe damage that can get pretty bad as you get older.
If you do blow dry your hair, make sure you use a protector:

Such as that one. Also, use a repairing shampoo:

Not as much as it would to blow dry your hair with the 'hot' setting on.

Also, try not to wash your hair every day or you will strip your hair of it's natural oils.

it is, but not as much.
the wind and sun is also damaging to your hair.
you might want to get a conditioner that will heal your hair afterwards, and then your hair wont get damaged.
