There’s a reason why blowout salons are getting a massive following. It’s because women really are in need of that beautifully blow-dried hair. Because we know that blowout bars are quite pricey, we believe that DIY blow-dry is a skill every woman needs to learn. That’s why we summed up easy-to-follow steps on how to perfect that amazing DIY blowout! We also dropped a few tips on what hair products to purchase when you want to achieve that salon-made blowout even when doing it at home!
Step # 1: Use hair treatment for that needed moisture!
It’s important to start with healthy hair. Blowdrying blasts hair with hot air, resulting to breakage. Invest in a hair treatment like PHYTO 9 ULTRA-DRY HAIR NOURISHING DAY CREAM WITH 9 PLANTS, P1,650, to make sure your mane stays soft and shiny.
Step # 2: Follow it with a good shampoo and conditioner.
No two shampoos are created equal. You might recall that in your salon, the stylists go all out when it comes to washing your hair, making sure that no styling residue and oil are left which can make your style go flat. Here at Calyxta, we love SHISEIDO TSUBAKI DAMAGE CARE SHAMPOO, P575. It’s loaded with Tsubaki Amino that help increase hair density and makes water molecules evaporate faster, leaving less time for your blow dryer to wreak damage. Be sure to also place a bit of conditioner on the ends of your mane and rinse with cold water to protect your hair and leave it shiny. We like DOVE HAIR THERAPY CONDITIONER COLOR CARE, P292.50, for its affordable price and ability to help hair color last longer.
Step # 3: Don’t forget to spritz pre-blow-dry spray!
Now it’s time to spray your newly washed hair with the right products to achieve the results you want. For fine and limp hair, we suggest DOVE HAIR TREATMENT VOLUME ROOT LIFT SPRAY, P299. For extra shine, we adore TONI&GUY HAIR STYLING SOPHIA SHINE SPRAY, P849 (now at P424.50 only).
Step # 4: Maintain your beautiful blowout!
After giving yourself a gorgeous blowout, lock in your style by using TRESemme SALON FINISH EXTRA HOLD HAIRSPRAY, P689 (now at P479 only). We also recommend investing in a dry shampoo like BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO in CHERRY, P750, to give your hair a pleasant fruity scent, and, of course, help extend the life of your blowout.
