The best part when going to the hair salon is the blowout - nothing makes me feel more confident than shiny, bouncy hair. But how do you achieve it at-home? Is it possible?
If you are coming from my IGTV video on how to do an at-home blow out, then you came to right place. In order to prep for a blowout, I washed my hair with shampoo and a conditioning mask. Sometimes if my hair is really dirty (maybe I went too long not washing my hair), I will use an exfoliating shampoo to get all of the gunk out. Make sure to use a turban towel to dry your hair, not a regular bath towel. This will help reduce hair frizz and it absorbs water faster than a regular bath towel. I’ve been using mine since college!
Before blow drying my hair, I sprayed heat protecting spray (the OG Tresemme that I’ve been using for years) and a blow dry mist. This blow dry mist will help cut down the drying time especially good for coarse, thick hair. Once my hair is completely dry, I separated my hair in half and leaving the top part aside until the very end. Please note, if you have thicker hair, use smaller sections. This particular thermal brush is amazing since the bristles do not get hot so you will not burn your scalp by accident. It is important to get as close to your hairline as possible, since you want your hair smooth from top to bottom. You will notice in my video that I like to “flip” my hair at the ends that’s because I like the shape it gives to my face.
Lastly, I did the sections of my hair that frames my face. This is by far the most important part to a blowout because this will make your hair look bouncy and professional. Perfect for a side part or a middle part! If you have baby hairs sticking up because of the heat that you applied to your hair, I would use hair spray with flexible hold or a balm that can tame those fly aways. To top it all off, I applied a serum to the ends of my hair for some extra shine.
Do you guys think you can achieve this at-home? If so, let me know your thoughts below! :)
