Nothing compares to the feeling of stepping out of the salon with a fresh blowout. But as the clock ticks, your blowout loses its glam, leaving you wondering how to maintain your blowout on day three. But, with a few tricks and the right Spornette brush, you can achieve long-lasting blowouts.
As we explore how to make your blowout last, make sure to head out to the Spornette shop and get your game-changing brush now!
Step 1: Understand Your Hair Type
The most important thing for a long-lasting blowout is knowing your hair type and how it reacts to this styling.
- Straight hair: Needs minimal maintenance, which can usually be done with just a brush and a blow dry.
- Wavy hair: It is often prone to frizz but holds a blowout, especially when combed through with the right brushes afterward.
- Curly hair: This can be a challenge to maintain, but it is achievable. In addition to tangling brushes, it may need moisturizing products to make it work.
- Coily & kinky hair: Maintenance usually works best when you integrate a porcupine brush, blow dryer, and essential oils into your after-care routine.
Step 2: Know When to Wash Your Hair
Washing blown-out hair is usually best done on day three or four after styling your hair. However, this, too, varies on hair types.
Coarse, thick, or curly hairs love the nourishment of natural oils, which means that you can preserve your blowout for longer. You can make it to day five if your hair doesn’t feel too greasy.
Fine hair tends to feel greasy or limp by day two. If this is you, consider freshening up with a dry shampoo so you get rid of excess oil.
If you tend to sweat more and absolutely can’t go without a shower, put a shower cap on so you’ll prolong the life of your blowout.
Step 3: Wear Your Hair Correctly
Try to avoid putting your hair up in a pony or tight bun to prevent odd bends in your hair. Instead, go for a loose bun, or if you have long hair, put your locks in a messy ponytail.
If you tend to get knots, consider a specialized Spornette brush to keep your hair in place without damaging it. And, by all means, avoid touching your head – and especially your roots.
Step 4: Learn How to Sleep with a Blowout
Sleep is your blowout’s worst enemy, but there are a few things to prevent your hairdo from being slept on. Here’s how you can maintain your blowout while getting a good night’s sleep:
Get a Silk or Satin Pillowcase
Sleeping with the right pillowcase is key. Silk and satin eliminate friction and reduce static, avoiding frizz altogether. Cotton pillowcases can be easier to find, but they aren’t the best at sleeping with blow-dried hair.
After you get your silk pillowcase, loosely tie your locks up on the top of your head and secure it with a couple of bobby pins. This will ensure you wake up with voluminous third-day hair.
Add Hair Products
If you have thicker hair, try adding a tiny amount of serum or oils to the end of your locks. This will help your hair absorb oil overnight and fuel your blowout so it feels fresh the next day.
Those of you with finer hair can make your blowout last by using dry shampoo. Just be careful not to spray too much on your head, as you can rid it of the moisture it needs.
Step 5: Freshen It Up with a Blow Dryer
Sometimes, the best thing you can do to preserve your blowout past the three-day mark is a DIY blow dry.
For this, all you need is a blow dryer, a paddle brush, and a round brush:
- Start by taking a paddle brush and gently comb through your dry hair to remove knots and tangles. For this, check out Spornette’s fantastic options for different hair types.
- Next, spray a bit of heat protectant, focusing more on the ends and less on the roots to prevent your hair from getting crunchy.
- Set your blow dryer to a medium heat setting and blow dry your locks in the opposite direction of hair growth to get more volume.
- Then, using your round brush, smooth down the roots and slightly curl the ends of your locks.
- Finish off with a bit of hairspray to keep it in place. Make sure to go for a silicone-free hairspray, as it’ll keep your curls looking healthier and less crunchy.
Maintaining your blowout overnight and having it shine through day three is no longer impossible. With a bit of dry shampoo, the right sleep, and a good brush, you’re all set to look as fabulous as you did when you walked out of the salon.
