Ok, so these tips are NOT from me as I am NO expert on blowing out my hair. It’s usually hit or miss with me so I end up reaching for my flat iron.
What is the secret to getting the perfect blow out? Well to start you definitely have to use the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. I haven’t yet found my “holy grail” in hair products but I have learned what consistencies work best for my curly hair. I definitely stay away from volumizing shampoos and conditioners of any kind. They tend to make my hair more fly away and I already have volume so I don’t want my hair to be even puffier! I like products that are made for “sleek” styles or take away frizz. These products tend to be heavier, almost coating or weighing down the hair a bit which I like. But if you have thin hair that this is probably not what you’re looking for.
The shampoo and conditioner I’m currently using is from the Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner.
My absolute favorite trick is taking an old fluffy make up brush and spraying it with hairspray then using the brush to tame fly aways! Brilliant!
For some reason I’ve misplaced the concentrator of my blow dryer which definitely helps to prevent flyaways and create a smooth surface. So here are my results:
Not perfect, but not terrible either. I think I need more practice and I hope I can locate my concentrator as it really does help with blow drying.
Overall I’m impressed with how well this technique worked. Since my hair is shorter now I think it looks best either curly or straight and not in between so I think I will still be using my flat iron when going straight at this length. However, with longer hair I think this technique would create a nice soft, smooth and wavy look.
What are your blow out techniques? Have you tried any of these products?
