Blow dry. This is one of my favorite things to do with my hair. Now that the weather is gorgeous outside, all I want to do is be away from home. I’m someone that doesn’t get my hair blown out professionally. I usually find time to blow out my own hair, though I don’t always that free time. Speaking to a couple of professional hairdressers and friends, I’ve got amazing tips on how to make your blowout last longer.
- Start clean. The cleaner your hair the longer the blowout will last. Before blow drying wash your hair twice.
- Tangles and knots free. Brush out your hair before you start with the blowout. Use a detangling brush to brush out all the tangles and knots and start fresh!
- Cool setting. Finish your blow-dry with cool air. Set your blow dryer on “cool” to get that perfect style to stay in one place.
- Don’t be afraid of too much volume. This additional volume to the hair will make that blow last longer.
- Avoid tying your hair back with a tight tie. Instead of using a tight tie try using a large clip to hold your hair together. If you’ve got thin hair and the clip isn’t holding, use a soft tie. This will the hair getting creased.
- Try your best to avoid moisture. Meaning, try and avoid humidity and water. Moisture will just flat out your blowout and destroy it. When showering, I recommend that you use a shower cap just to keep that moisture away.
- Sleeping on a silk pillowcase. If you’ve got a cotton pillowcase, this will ruin the blowout and also damage your hair. It’s recommended to sleep on a silk pillowcase where your hair will just slide rather than rub.
- Refresh your bangs. Because bangs are in your face, it’s normal for them to lose volume. It’s okay to just wet the front section or your bangs and give them a re-blow for a more refreshing look.
