Humidity can make doing an at-home blowout seem like the most futile styling idea anyone ever had. But, that doesn't mean we don't want to get sleek, polished strands à la Karlie Kloss anyway! So, between flustered subway rides and inescapable neck sweat, how can you make your blowout humidity-proof?
1/ Don't blow dry in the bathroom
Do you know what's really humid? Your bathroom right after you've showered in it. Blow-drying your hair in there is only going to unnecessarily expose your strands to humidity and ruin your hard work before it's even finished. The solution: relocate to your bedroom!
2/ Use a heat protectant
Dry hair absorbs more moisture from the air around it than healthy hair, and heat damage is the number one cause of dried out tresses! To prevent frazzling, make sure you always apply a heat protectant like Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blowout Heatspray first. Spritz it on in sections, and use a comb to get even roots-to-ends coverage.
3/ Make sure it's totally dry
If there's any moisture left in your hair at all when you step outside, it will turn into a frizzball in mere minutes. So, make sure your mane is completely, 100% dry before you head out.
4/ Use finishing sprays
Finishing sprays like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray create a protective barrier between your strands and the elements, so you should never skip them! Hold the can at least six inches away from your head and spritz your hair in one smooth, sweeping motion.
5/ Try a protective hairstyle
While making your way from A to B, protect your blowout by pinning it into a low bun at the nape of your neck. This will keep the lengths underwraps and prevent them being exposed to humidity while you're out and about.
