How you dry your hair in the first place is an important issue. Note that, a good blowout can last several days, especially if you also shampoo your hair correctly. Once you learn how to do it the right way and you take your time, you should be able to keep the look for several days. You can use a dry shampoo in between to keep the greasiness at bay.
Choose a Moisture-free Location: Humid surrounding or sweat can cause frizzy hair. In order to avoid it blow-dry your hair in a muggy bathroom. Move the operation to the bedroom.
Drop the towel. Keeping wet strands wrapped in a towel for a half-hour as you do your make-up will just cause frizz! The roughness of the cotton forces your hair cuticles open, making them more likely to go every-which-way. Do not rub your hair with a towel ,it causes frizz or wrap it on top of your head ,it flattens roots. Instead, squeeze out excess water as soon as you’re out of the shower, then let your hair air-dry for five or ten minutes before blow-drying.
Protect Your Hair: Before you begin, mist on a heat-protecting spray. These products contain polymers that form a film on the surface of the hair that dissipates the heat. Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray is a great choice, as it has a texture akin to dry shampoorather than the usual wetness and stickiness of a hair spray. However, it smells a little like lemon Pledge.
Choose the Right Tool: Pick a model with “professional” in its name to ensure that it has a turbo motor, to dry hair faster, and operates on no more than 1,800 watts, to minimize damage. It might cost more, but your strands will repay you in good-hair days. The Turbo Power TwinTurbo 2600 Professional Hair Dryer, is a good choice. Dry hair by moving the dryer (without the concentrator nozzle) side to side while raking your fingers through the strands and lifting at the roots. Get hair 80 percent dry.
Separate hair into sections: Divide combed hair into sections and secure with clips or ponytailholders. You can even wind hair into mini buns — two in the back and one on each side. If you have super thick or heavy hair, try dividing each of your sections. One above the other helps manage the blowout. Leave out a section to start with.
Hold your Hair Tight: Wrap each one tightly around a brush as you pull it (tightly again) through your hair and follow with the nozzle.
Dry the Roots First: Always dry your roots first (unless you have bangs), with your head flipped over. Massage your roots while blasting them with warm air. The trick to getting each section to lie straight for a long period of time is to make sure the roots are completely dry. Hold the section taut and hit it with the heat of the dryer on all four sides: top, left, right, and underneath. Continue until the root is dry, then angle the hairdryer so it follows the brush and dries the hair behind it.
Tame your hair down: Hold them flat with a brush and blast with hot air for five seconds. Then use the cool-shot button on your blow-dryer to lock them into place.
Tousle and style: Once each section is cool, let all the sections down and shake them with your hands (flip your head upside down if you have longer hair) and it’s like magic: amazing volume, great style, gorgeous curl. Use a little bit of hairspray if you want and you’ve got a lasting blowout!
Add the shine: Lock in your style by switching the dryer to the cool setting and hitting your hair with cold air to close the cuticles; this will add up shine. Then remove the clips to let each section down, and gently comb through strands with your fingers to loosen the curls.
Once you are done, use a round boar bristle brush to smoothen the hair down and brings it together, which allows shine to come to the surface.
