Tips for Making your Blow-Out Last
Blowouts will make your hair look smooth, shiny, and silky. Above all they are much healthier for your hair than flat-ironing it. But how can you really make them last for at least a week or so? Many business women and entrepreneurs, living their lives on their toes find it also challenging in maintaining their blowout for at least a week. On average, a working woman is able to maintain her hair for three days maximum. Fortunately there are ways you can make a blowout lasts for longer. Here are the steps which can make a blowout last for a week:
The first two days
Surprise – surprise, don’t apply any products. In know it’s very tempting to resist the urge to apply those deliciously scented serums that makes your hair feel super glamorous. Unfortunately these products aren’t going to help you much, especially if you are on a long haul. In fact they are actually only going to weigh your hair down. Resist your temptation to apply any products for at least three days.
On the third day
It’s time to break down your product fast. Apply some dry shampoo in the morning hours and make sure to brush through afterwards.
On the fourth and fifth day
You can add some dry conditioner now which will act as a fabric softener for your hair. Apply dry conditioners only at the ends and avoid applying them in the roots.
On the sixth and seventh day
You are already on the final stretch. Apart from applying dry shampoo and conditioner, you can now use a volume spray or blast your hair with the blow dryer to add some volume. By this time you can also consider wearing your hair in a half pony, in case your hair isn’t bouncy enough.
Recommendations for weight watchers or gym goers
I would highly recommend against getting sweaty on days that you want your blowout to last. You should be careful to prevent yourself from getting sweaty even if you are planning to do light exercise such as yoga, walking, or light aerobics.
