4 TIPS TO MAKE YOUR BLOWOUT LAST LONGER
GRAB THE DRY SHAMPOO
In the earlier days after your blowout you were discouraged to use dry shampoo, but later in the week, you definitely want to use this style-saving necessity. Carefully use the dry shampoo by collecting a small section of your hair measuring about 2” inches wide. Gently mist the underside of the cluster of hair. Keep repeating the process until you have covered all of your hair. Once you are finished use your fingertips to carefully work the shampoo into your roots. Avoid spraying a large amount directly onto your scalp because it can create product overload.
REFRESH THE RIGHT WAY
Women tend to reach for the dry shampoo as soon as roots start to droop. While dry shampoo is usually a great tool, in this case, it will cause your blowout to lose its shine and have a matte texture. Instead, reach for Aveda light-hold hairspray and spray your roots while holding your head upside down. Then flip your hair back to normal and the volume should hold all day.
DEAL WITH THE DIRT AND GRIME
Usually, by day four it will be obvious your hair is dirty. However, you don’t have to panic just yet. Invest in Aveda texture spray for your hair. It is a miracle worker since it breaks down product residue, oil and grime leaving your hair looking refreshed.
TRANSFORM YOUR BLOWOUT
One of the most common blowouts clients request is the sleek, straight style. Straight hair tends to show greasy roots easier then textured blowouts. Once your hair has become greasy and you already used the dry shampoo, your next option is to turn your straight style into something new. You can use this situation as an opportunity to create easy upswept styles or braids. A sleek ponytail can create a professional or casual look.
Extending your blowout is easier than you expect. Once you become familiar with the tips listed above, the procedure will become second nature. In the beginning try to maintain the exact style of the blowout, then focus on refreshing the style. Once you have reached few days past your blowout consider changing your part and style.
If you have chosen a textured blowout you can refresh it with a curling iron. You can also try a casual updo that allow tresses to frame your face. Straight blowouts can be extended as long as possible with the use of dry shampoo and careful showering. Once you have reached the up-do stage of extending your blowout, you will be looking forward to your next visit to The Wave Salon and begin the process again.
