This has been one of my most requested tutorials as of late, so I thought I’d plug the “how to blowout hair for maximum volume” on the blog for further reference. I’ll be describing the method step-by-step and answering all of your questions here and via IG stories!
My hair is thick and unruly, very damaged but with lots of body and texture.
What I typically use:
This is the second day of my blowout: The ends are starting to flip outwards and it’s because of my previous haircut. I’m having a haircut in a few weeks and will do a blunt cut and get a couple of inches out.
Once or twice a week, I try going for 5-6 days and keeping my hair up in a pony or knot when it starts to get dirty.
The technique is to blowout the hair upwards as I show in the videos. Always pull it up instead of down.
Yes, but I do understand it’s a major investment. To me, it’s lighter weight, less noisy, and uses less heat than my previous hair dryers (that were really nice too!) I use it A LOT so I can justify it. If you’re an occasional blowout/hair-drying gal it’s not worth it.
I honestly just sleep on it. I use silk pillowcases and change them every time I was my hair which is about once or twice a week.
I love the Kristin Ess ones. They have a great grip but don’t pull the hair like all the other plastic clips I own!
It’s a long bob, blunt cut. I have long bangs now but dying for them to grow!
Nope! If my hair is frizzy even after a blowout I just curl it with a curling iron.
They target weakened hair prone to falling. It’s a fortifying line and many of the products have won awards. So far I love the results!
Only when I curl it but not on a blowout. When I do I use Oribe Fine Mist hair spray, love the smell and lightweight texture.
I love Kerastase and Shu Uemura hair shampoo + Masks. They’re just the best most hydrating products for my hair type. I love styling my hair with Oribe Straightaway serum, it gives my hair the perfect bounce and body while straightening sans frizz. For oils I love Kerastase and Shu Uemura. Olaplex is a great lightweight oil and pre-wash treatment for times when my hair is extra dry.
Not when I blow it out, but if I’m styling it afterward I use a curling iron. I don’t use straighteners on my hair, just doesn’t look good on me!
I use the hair drier from the hotel OR style hair on a low bun, but I’m taking a dual voltage curling Iron this time around since we’re staying longer than usual!
I hope this answered all of your questions! I’ll have a beach wave soon!!
