Create the Ultimate DIY Blowout at Home
Are you tired of spending a fortune on blowouts? Have you ever wished to achieve that salon-perfect look from the comfort of your own home? Look no further! Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create the ultimate DIY blowout at home.
Gather Your Essential Tools
To achieve salon-level results, you will need the following tools:
- A high-quality hair dryer
- A round brush (preferably with ceramic or tourmaline coating)
- Sectioning clips
- Heat protectant spray
- A good quality hair serum or oil
- Hairspray (optional)
Prepping Your Hair
No matter how good your tools are, the key to a perfect blowout is prepping your hair. Start by washing your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Towel dry your hair and apply a heat protectant spray evenly. Comb through your hair to distribute the product evenly.
Section Your Hair
To achieve that salon blowout look, you need to section your hair into manageable chunks. Using sectioning clips, divide your hair into three sections – top, middle, and bottom. Start by blow-drying the bottom section first.
Blow Dry the Bottom Section
Take a small chunk of the bottom section and attach it to a round brush. Make sure the hair is wrapped around the brush, and the brush is underneath the hair. Turn on your hair dryer and use it in conjunction with the round brush. Point the nozzle down and use your dryer’s cool shot button to lock in the style. Once done, release the section.
Move to the Middle Section
Once you’ve completed the bottom section, move on to the middle section. Repeat the same process, remembering to hold the hair taut with the round brush and using your cool shot button to minimize frizz and lock in the style.
Blow Dry the Top Section
The top section is the last and most important part of the process. Divide it into manageable sections, and blow-dry each section with a round brush as per the previous steps.
Add the Finishing Touches
Once you’ve finished blow-drying your hair, add some shine by applying a small amount of hair serum or oil. Fluff your hair with your fingers, and add a spritz of hairspray to hold the style.
Q1. How often should I wash my hair to maintain a blowout?
Ans: You should avoid washing your hair for at least two to three days to maintain the blowout for a longer period.
Q2. Can I achieve the same results with a cheaper hair dryer?
Ans: Yes, you can achieve similar results with a cheaper hair dryer. However, high-end hairdryers offer quicker drying times, more control, and better heat distribution.
Q3. Should I use a round brush or a paddle brush to achieve a blowout?
Ans: A round brush is the best option to achieve a blowout as it provides extra lift and volume, which isn’t possible with a paddle brush.
Q4. Can I use hot rollers after blow drying my hair?
Ans: Yes, you can. Hot rollers will enhance the style and provide extra volume and lift to your hair.
Q5. Can I blow-dry my hair without using sectioning clips?
Ans: It’s best to section your hair using clips to achieve the best blowout results. However, if you don’t have clips, you can still blow-dry your hair, but the results will likely be subpar.
Q6. Can I use a hair straightener instead of a round brush?
Ans: Hair straighteners can be used to achieve the same results, but it’s easier to control the heat with a round brush. Straighteners can also cause more heat damage to your hair.
Q7. Can I use a blow dryer without a nozzle attachment?
Ans: Using a nozzle attachment is recommended as it provides better control over where the heat is being directed.
