How To: Blow out for days…
Book a blow out
You can book a blow out or dry it yourself. If you choose to dry it yourself make sure you wash it really well. Scrub your scalp and let the shampoo cascade down the hair shaft and it will do it’s job of cleaning. You’re using professional products to protect your investment keeping your hair color pristine and your hair looking it’s best. Condition.
Day 1 & 2: I recommend you use very little product. I would use a heat protectant, some moisture (leave-in or oil) and a volumizer of your choice. You may have all three and there are certainly products with multiple qualities. I often recommend 5 in 1 by J Beverly Hills, it has the five benefits of moisture, strength , shine, heat protectant and de-frizz. Always start in the back on your ends and work your way up unless your directly spraying your roots. Blow dry with your favorite brush or let your hair dry naturally. You can also introduce a flat iron or curling iron at any time in this process. I usually curl my hair.
Make sure you have a shower cap
Now it’s time for some dry shampoo. Typically this is the day your hair starts to get oily and maybe it’s flat again. On this day I tend to run some coconut oil through my ends brushing it through and I spray fresh hair at my root absorbing all the oil. Don’t be afraid to rub it or brush it in. You will start to see your hair have life again moving into a different texture which could be fun for putting your hair in a pony or bun. If you’re blonde it will revive your color and make it brighter. If you were around food smells or smoke it will make your hair smell better.
Day 4 & 5
More dry shampoo in similar fashion to day 3. If you’re feeling dull put in some shine spray or oil and if you don’t want to soften your texture just spray in hairspray, it will give you shine and hold at the same time. I sometimes will recurl my hair with a flat iron or curling iron.
Day 6 & 7
If you’ve made it to day six or seven congratulations! I tend to just stick with my revive oil and fresh hair routine. You can introduce a volume spray with a blow-dryer to set it or use texture spray. This is where my hair usually goes up but sometimes if my hair doesn’t need a cut I can make it with my hair down for even longer than 7 days. I personally like how my hair changes and the time I save not having to wash it so often. If you’re just trying it out it will take some practice but the freedom and fun of it is amazing. Now all you have to do is shampoo and repeat…
