How To Blow Dry Your Hair Like A Pro
Tips For A Salon-Worthy Blow Out
Double Cleanse, Then Condition
- Many of us can get away with using a single formula for various hairstyles, if you want to set your finished look apart, picking a formula designed to help smooth hair or add weightless volume can help elevate your style.
- Those with fine hair should look for a volumizing formula and skip heavy conditioners. Opt for light moisturizers and concentrate conditioner toward the ends of your hair.
- If you have coarse or unruly hair, you’ll need slightly heavier smoothing products to help combat frizz and cut down on time spend drying.
- If you want a salon-worthy finish, always Shampoo your hair twice to remove product buildup. Concentrate on areas that are often overlooks like the nape and occipital.
- After rinsing, condition from mid-lengths to ends then rinse thoroughly to remove leftover product. This ensures your blow-dry is quicker and lasts longer.
Prep for Perfection
The foundation of your blow-dry is half of the work. A heat protectant should always be the first product you apply. To add volume at the roots apply a mousse or volume spray at the scalp. Then for sleek ends use a leave-in conditioner or a styling spray or cream with hold. Always start off slow with a light amount of product and then layer as needed.
Style The Face Frame First
- If you have bangs, blow drying this section first.
- If not, it is still a great idea to dry the face frame section before moving on to the others.
- From here rough dry hair to about 70-80% dry and if you want extra volume, flip your head upside down while doing so.
- From here, use a round brush so you have enough tension to create your smooth style. *The only you should skip rough-drying is when you are working with curly hair.
After blow-drying, allow your style to cool to help it set and then use hairspray or anti-humidity spray to create a barrier between the elements.
