Extend Your Blowout With These Simple Tips

There isn’t much that can make your hair look and feel as good as a blowout. That voluminous silky hair most definitely is something you want to make the most of.

At Blown Lux we know how good a blowout can look and we also know our clients want to experience those glossy locks for as long as possible.

Read on to find out how you can get the most out of your blowout.


Sleep Right

You got that blowout, and damn, it looks good. It’s soft, it’s bouncy and it’s so fun to swish around.

The first step to keeping your hair looking its best is not to ruin it by smashing it on a pillow for eight hours tonight. Instead, use scrunchies to pull our hair into a low pony or two Princess Leia–style buns before you go to sleep. This loose hairstyle will protect your strands from becoming tangled while you sleep and keep that volume in your roots.


Satin Pillowcase

After the second day, your blowout can look a bit blah. Shine-free. And when hairs rub up against the rough cotton fibres in your pillowcase, it can result in an ever duller-looking finish.

To keep the shine and your hair tangle-free, sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase, instead. The silky fabric will help make your hair look glossier than ever. Even if you haven’t had a blowout it’s still a great tip to keep in mind if you move a fair bit in your sleep or usually wake up with knotted hair.


Dry Shampoo

When it comes to lengthening the life of your blowout, dry shampoo is a lifesaver. Obviously washing your hair is immediately going to kill those bouncy locks so dry shampoo keeps your roots from feeling greasy.

Dry shampoo will also give your hair body at the root to keep that voluminous just left the salon look.  Simply apply, flip hair over, and massage into your scalp to maintain the volume of your blow out and you’re ready to go.


Hair Fragrance

Unfortunately, the scent of those salon products doesn’t last forever, especially when other scents are introduced into your area. Could be smoke, whatever you’ve been cooking or just air pollution.

So, when looking to extend the wear of your blow out, nothing freshens an ageing blowout like a lightweight hair scent. Of course, you don’t want to rewash your hair so instead opt for adding a little fragrance back into your do with a little spritz of your choice.

We recommend avoiding strong floral or spicy fragrances, instead opt for lightweight and faint smells which won’t overwhelm you or your do. Try a fresh and light scent in an Eau De Toilette instead of an Eau De Parfum.

Highly recommend and a regular for a reason!

I don’t have the easiest hair to deal with but the stylists do an incredible job each time! A convenient city location and so easy to book online, which is a major plus. Special shoutout to Bruna who does magical waves and braids 😘
