It’s also surely a more sustainable way to make sure your tresses always look Instagram-worthy and just imagine the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel after!

Tips on getting the perfect blowout at home

Towel-dry your hair with care

Just like how a perfect makeup base is achieved with a good primer, a perfect blowout starts with prepping your hair.

After hopping out of the shower, remove excess moisture with a gentle, super-absorbent towel or a microfiber towel.

You’ll want your hair to be damp and not soaking wet as too much heat exposure will cause frizz and damage over time.

Always prep your hair with the right products

Use a wide-toothed comb or detangling brush to weave out any knots from the bottom up. Then, depending on what style you’re going for (sleek straight or voluminous waves), follow with a leave-in product or volume spray which can also serve as a heat protectant.

Choosing the right product is also an essential step! Use hair products that will match your hair type, the same way you’d pick products for your skin type.

If your hair is very fine, use mists or mousses. Go for oils or creams to add moisture for smoothing and softening the hair if you have medium to thick hair.

Pre-dry your hair

Before you section and style your hair to your liking, rough-dry your tresses till it’s about 60% to 70% dry.

It’s crucial to keep your hair dryer on cool air to medium heat and to use your fingers first. This will help keep your hair cuticles sealed and lends you more natural texture and movement.

Using high heat means you won’t get any bounce in your locks since your hair will be overstretched.
