8 beauty products for a fantastic at-home blow out
Whether or not one of your resolutions was to do your hair more this year, we could all use some pointers on blow drying. It's not easy, plus getting your hair done at the salon always looks worlds better than doing it yourself at home.
But that doesn't have to be the case. Sub par hair could be due to using the wrong products. Having the right ones at home can make all the difference.
So, here's exactly what you need for a fantastic, salon-quality DIY blowout:
1. Pureology Pure Volume Blow Dry Amplifier Lotion
It all starts with a good shampoo (like this one from Pureology). Then, use a little of this special product that has heat-activated volumizers that work with the heat of your blow dryer to give you full, bouncy strands.
2. Sexy Hair Big Altitude Bodifying Blow Dry Mousse
Before you blow dry, first apply this mousse to your roots. It's a cult favorite because it's lightweight but packs a powerful boost of volume.
3. Kardashian Beauty Smooth Styler Blow Dry Cream
Then, you need to protect your strands from any damage. If you have thick, dry hair, this cream will protect it and keep your locks smooth and shiny.
4. Matrix Oil Wonders Flash Blow Dry Oil
This oil will infuse your hair with tons of amazing shine, and it'll cut your blow-drying time in half.
5. L'oreal Advanced Boost It Blow Out Heatspray
If you have thinner, more sensitive strands, go for this heat spray. It protects, gives an extra boost of volume and will extend the life of your blowout.
6. Revlon 1875W AC Motor Power Dry Hair Dryer
For blow-dryers, make sure you have one that has quick drying power and ionic technology to leave you with smooth, shiny hair, like this one from Revlon.
7. Conair Classic Wood Natural Shine Booster Club Hair Brush
If you use a brush while blow-drying, this one may lead to fewer flyaways and a smoother finish.
8. Blowpro Blow Out Serious Non-Stick Hairspray
Speaking of finishes, after you're done blowdrying, finish with a finishing spray to keep your style in tact, yet super touchable and light.
And side note: Don't forget where great hair begins -- with biotin vitamins. Here's to looking like you stepped straight out of a salon every time you blow dry at home.
