We don’t know about you, but there’s something about a good blowout at the salon that gets us all tingly inside.
A smooth, bouncy blowout styled perfectly is truly one of the best things in life. Unfortunately, anyone who’s tried to replicate the same sleek straightness or soft curls at home will know that contrary to what your hairstylist tells (or shows) you, it’s no easy feat.
There are, after all, plenty of factors that go into nailing it, practice being the biggest. The good news, however, is that using the right products and tools can make the process much faster and infinitely less stressful.
Using a good heat protectant, for example, is already half the battle won. Besides sealing off hair cuticles to protect it against damage during the styling process, it’ll also nourish your hair to give you shiny, healthier-looking hair — ergo, a better blowout.
Your hair texture and type will determine what type of protectant to use, whether it’s cream, spray, or oil. As a rule of thumb, those with fine hair should steer clear of oil-based versions, and opt for lighter sprays instead. Conversely, those which thick, medium to coarse hair will find that heavier oils and creams are more effective.
A salon blowout at home is only as good as your tools, so investing in the right ones will save you time and money from visiting the salon before an event. If hand-eye coordination’s never been your thing, we’ve also included dummy-proof tools below that will get your hair sorted in half the time, alongside finishing products that will seal in your hard work while keeping it healthy.
Here, everything you’ll need to achieve a salon blowout at home.
