Let Me Blow Ya Mind With These DIY Blowout Hacks

Dude, my hair blows. At least once a day it does – I’m a blowdry addict.

If you’re longing to recreate that perfect blowout you get at the dry bar, follow the below tips:

  • T-dry (and by T, we don’t mean “towel”). Towels are, like, all rough ‘n bumpy. Not friendly for even the remotely curly¬†or anyone who wants to avoid frizz. So skip the towel and dry with a smooth T-shirt instead for a sleeker finish.
  • Get primed and ready. Have you heard of blowdry primer? It’s totes a thing, and it can save your hair from serious blowdrying damage. Try Pillow¬†Proof Blow Dry Express Primer from Redken for heat protection up to 450 degrees.
  • blow-dry-hair-beautiful-blonde-robe-attachmentDo it outside — and upside down. If your bathroom gets all steamed up after the shower, it’s not best to dry in there – that excess humidity could put a damper (emphasis on “damp”) on your fab style. And surely you’ve heard of flipping upside down to dry; do it to roots and come back up while you’re still slightly damp. It’ll do the trick without making you feel sick.
  • Get sectioned. Putting hair in sections will avoid windblown tangles and allow each section to dry more efficiently, meaning you won’t overdry and damage some of your hair.
  • Cool it down. See that lil’ cool blast button? He’s your best friend in setting your style and preventing frizz. Never, ever finish a blow dry without hitting the cool blast!
  • Make your blow job last. It’s awful to work so hard on your hair only to have it ruined the next day – so don’t. Use an extender like Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender to squeeze more life out of that hard earned style. (Bonus: it says it’s unisex… for girls AND boys. Mee-ow.)
