How to get your Hair Blowout to last


How to make a blow out last seems to be a question most women have. There’s nothing like a good blowout from the salon to make you feel like a brand new woman! We get our hair done, fall in love with that beautifully tousled hair and, naturally, want to find out how to make it last. It’s not that easy, of course, but it can be done which is what matters the most! So here's a few hair tricks and effective ways to make your blowout last as long as possible so you can preserve the sexy feel and keep your locks looking lovely as long as possible!

hands off 

One of the hardest things to do after you get a fabulous blowout is to keep your hands off those soft and silky strands but it’s one of the most important rules! The one you must follow in case you want to master the art of how to make a blowout last. Touching your hair will cause it to lose its shape and body as well cause your scalp to produce oil so admire your hair from afar and avoid touching it at all costs!
Wrapping your hair up can mean the difference between waking up to soft, straight strands and having to face a tangled mess! Grab a silk scarf and carefully and loosely wrap your hair up so that the ends aren't disturbed and leave bangs out. Avoid putting anything that might dent or produce weird lines in your hair.
If you don't have a silk scarf to use, another trick to making a blowout last is to loosely tie the ends of your hair in a ponytail with a soft scrunchie high on the top of your head. Leave out the front portion that frames your face and sleep with a satin pillowcase. The key here is to loosely tie up your hair so that your strands and ends remain intact without becoming tangled or causing frizz.
Make your blowout last even in the shower by putting your hair up again in a high and loose ponytail and tie a scarf or bandana around your hairline so that the shower cap doesn't make any your hair and to keep hair from getting wet. Once you're done showering, dry yourself off and shake your hair out. Feel free to use hairspray to help settle your hair. One hairspray that will be great is Bed Head Masterpiece for $19.50.  It will provide hold without that crunchy look and will keep your hair looking healthy and shiny.
Another important step in how to make a blowout last is to use a dry shampoo after a couple of days when your scalp and/or hair starts feeling a little oily. There are a lot of excellent dry shampoo's available, we offer the Kenra for $19.50 . Spritz or powder your roots and gently rub or brush the formula in to improve the look, feel, smell and texture of your hair!
When you’re looking for ways to make your blowout last, keep in mind that you want to use the least amount of products possible such as serums, certain hairsprays and shine enhancers. You can use these products, especially if you're hoping to prolong your blowout for a work week, although using them towards the end is generally considered better  as it will allow you to have a fresher looking style as opposed to the one matted with a full week’s worth of product buildup.
One of the final steps in how to make a blowout last is to use a large barreled curling iron to give your hair some oomph. Change your part for more volume and use dry shampoo again if needed. Give your hair some bouncy curls or just use the iron to flip the ends under and get a more uniform look. If you don't have time to curl your hair, dirty hair is always the easiest to style and braid so go for a fun fishtail braid or try something new!
