Getting a blowout is one of the most luxurious things you can do with your hair. If you have been fortunate enough to have a skilled hairdresser massage, brush, and blow dry your hair, you know how amazing it feels when they’re done. However, getting a hair blowout is similar to getting a beautiful bouquet. The first few days are magical – your hair feels light, bouncy, fresh, and clean. But by day three or four, it can look and feel more like a limp, wilting flower.
Fortunately, some simple blowout hairstyle hacks can help you make your hairdresser’s efforts last for up to a week. Follow the top three tips for a long-lasting blowout hairstyle below and make the most of your luxurious ‘do.
1. Put Your Hair Up (Loosely) Before You go to Bed
Everyone needs to sleep, but sleep can wreak havoc on your hair. It can get messy, tangled, and even a little oily if left wild and free. You can easily avoid such disturbances by putting your hair up before going to bed. However, be sure not to put it up tightly as that can create bends in the hair when you take it down.
For the perfect bedtime hairstyle, use a tight bristle paddle brush to pull all your hair straight to the top of your head. Then, wrap it into a big, loose bun and hold it in place with two bobby pins. If you have very thick or long hair, you can make two buns side-by-side. Help keep everything in place while you sleep and ensure some extra waves in the morning by misting a light spritz of Sublime Hold Hairspray over your hair.
2. Use Dry Shampoo
For a long-lasting blowout hairstyle, dry shampoo is your best friend. By day two or three, your hair is sure to start looking a little oily. You don’t need to let it go limp or wash out the blowout when this inevitably happens. Instead, spray your roots with dry shampoo for a boost of freshness and volume.
Make sure that you hold the dry shampoo 10-12 inches from your head when you spray it on, and let it sit for a few minutes so it can soak everything up before you massage it into your scalp. Also, keep in mind that a little goes a long way. Keep it confined to the roots, and don’t spray too much to avoid heavy buildup.
3. Style with the Right Products
The most important thing you can do to make a blowout last is to style your hair with the right products throughout the week following the blowout. Revitalize your hair between washes with lightweight RoyalTEA spray. This blow dry refresher and volumizer invigorates hair, absorbs impurities, and adds volume. Another excellent product to have on hand is Texture Dust. This amplifier spray can be used whenever you need to add some instant volume and texture to your hair in-between washes. It also works to nourish the hair and keep it looking fresh and healthy.
