What Products to Use When Blow Drying Your Hair

Why Should You Use Blow Drying Products When Drying You Hair?

In the real world, multiple salon visits a month just isn’t in the cards or even the coins. And sometimes you’d rather not make the trip. Whatever the reason, there always comes a time when we have to do our blowouts at home. And to get that super-satisfying, just-got-my-hair-did look, it takes the right technique, and, just as importantly, the right products. Your blow dryer is an important facet as well as the products you use. It can provide heat protection, smoothness to frizzy hair, add volume to fine hair, make the hair manageable, speed up your blow-dry time, add shine, etc…

Of all the simple, pure pleasures in life — watching the sun set, that first sip of wine — emerging from the salon after a fresh blow out is a favorite. Why? Because our hair looks amazing — and we also happen to love being appreciated.

Tips & Tricks

There are tons of blow-dry products out there and it can be complicated and expensive to try a bunch of different products, especially if you don’t know whether you want a cream or a spray to do the job. That’s where I come in to help you out here.

Blow Out Spray 

Designed for those with finer hair looking to add a bit more volume. Spray formulas are more lightweight and won’t weigh the hair down.

Blow Out Creams 

These are formulated for anyone with thick, frizzy, and/or curly hair.

*But he warns that all products are formulated differently so pay close attention to the labels and online reviews when you’re choosing one.

On the upside there is always styling products that will help with whatever we cannot control with our hair.

The Benefits

Correct blow drying will not harm your hair. However, applying heat to your hair when it is already dry can cause brittleness, breakage, dullness and dryness. The secret to safe blow drying is good timing and the proper use of tools and products.

Blow drying can help keep your hair healthy and give volume. At the same time, blow drying will close the hair cuticles which will avoid the incident of having split ends.

Quick tip:

If you’re traveling and don’t want to blow dry your hair make sure to do your research on a non-blow drying cream or spray.

With a good blowout and the right products you won’t need to wash your hair the next day. However, Dry Shampoo & or Dry Conditioner may come in handy.
