Hey everyone! Today's post is about something a lot of my clients struggle with; blow-drying their own hair. You know the feeling, you come home from the salon with bouncy, shiny smooth locks in half the time it usually takes.. how does she DO THAT?? The secret is the blow out. If you blow out your hair properly it kills two birds with one stone. You have to dry your hair anyway, so why not make it look awesome? It will take you longer in the beginning to blow out your hair with a round brush, but with time you will be able to do it quicker than you think. And if you have curly hair, it reduces the amount of "lions mane" effect you get after trying to blow dry you hair. Its so much easier to finish flat ironing it to perfection and you cut down on the amount of time you are going over and over and over that strand with the flat iron. I know if you have super thick or long hair you feel like this is never going to work, my arm wont reach that far! That may be true, but after you dry what you can reach just pull the hair over one shoulder to dry ends then the other side to create balance.
If you have curly/thick hair I would suggest using a straightening balm. I really like the straight sexy hair line it makes the hair soft and not too heavy. Also make sure you some sort of moroccan oil because as well as adding shine and softness, it also helps seal the cuticle and cut down on drying time.
If you have fine/thin hair I definitely would be careful on what you use to blow it out. Some products dry way too fast and you will have a hard time getting the brush through. (like all over mousses) If the product you like to use does dry too fast; try adding it layer by layer so the brush will slide through nicely. Don't forget a root lifter, this makes all the difference. When I blow out my hair it gets less oily, and typically it looks great the 2nd day too! This is a big plus for me vs. letting my hair air dry. I may take more time one day, but it lasts longer so its pretty much a win, all around.
Also as I said in the video, don't give up! The first time you might feel like its a complete FAIL, the brush is getting stuck, your hair might seem frizzy but it will get better!
