Whether you spent a chunk of your hard-earned cash on a salon blowout, or took the time to DIY the look at home, chances are you want it to last longer than 24 hours. Below, are some of our top tips for making that happen!
1/ 1. Invest in the right styling products
Before doing an at-home blowout, make sure you have a bottle of Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blowout Heatspray on hand. It not only enhances your style, it also protects your strands from heat damage. If you prefer working with mousse, try Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse instead.
2/ 2. Hands off!
One of the easiest ways you can cause any hairstyle to wilt is by touching it too much. The stimulation kickstarts your scalp's oil production, and the very act of running your fingers through your locks can cause them to lose volume.
3/ 3. Dry shampoo
On day two, three and beyond, keep your friends close and your dry shampoo closer. It will eliminate excess oil and give your style some added volume.
4/ 4. No moisture, no problem
Water, sweat and any other kind of liquid your hair might come into contact with is a blowout's worst enemy. This doesn't mean you need to avoid the gym or the shower, just be prepared. Use an absorbent headband to soak up sweat at your hairline during a workout, and invest in a shower cap.
5/ 5. A good night's sleep
Sleeping on a silk or satin pillow can really help to preserve a blowout as they aren't as harsh on your strands as cotton or synthetic materials. Pinning your hair up into a bun or topknot will also help to keep it bouncy and full of life while you catch some Zs.
To paraphrase the Vulcan salute, may your blowout live long and prosper!
