If a perfect at home blowout seems a bit daunting or intimidating to you, I’m here to tell you it’s much more achievable than you think. All you’ll need for a bouncy at home blow dry equivalent are a few key salon tools. Grab your blow dryer and let’s get started!
First of all, you’ll want to start with clean, fresh-out-the-shower hair. If you’re you’re the kind of person who has a busy schedule and you don’t have the time for a fresh blow dry every day, or if you just don’t like to wash your hair everyday, shampooing your hair twice in the shower before conditioning will leave you with fresh hair longer, so you’ll be able to skip a day or two- or three- between washing. After you’ve washed your hair, you’ll want to gently comb your hair and apply a good quality hair oil to protect your hair from heat damage while adding shine. Start at the ends of your hair and use whatever’s leftover on your hands to work through the rest.
Allowing your hair to air dry to almost completely dry, or, if you’re short on time, drying your hair with your blowdryer to an almost complete dry will literally take off three quarters of drying time. Once your hair is almost dry, you can begin sectioning off parts of your hair. If a straight hair blow dry is what you’re looking for, you can start off by sectioning your hair in layers from the bottom up. If you’re feeling a little more daring or looking for a sexy, more voluminous look, start from the top of your head by sectioning off face framing and crown portions. If you start from the top for a more voluminous look, blow dry sections and place hair in large or extra-large rollers once section is blow dried to add volume later. Leave the rollers on the top in and start blowdrying the rest of your hair from the bottom up, in sections. Remove once the rest of your hair is dry.
