Blowout Showercap Extend Hair Silk Dry Shampoo

There’s nothing like the va-va-voom volume of a professional blowout, but shelling out more than $50 bucks for one day of style? Ouch. But, of course, you can make it last if you know what to do. Here what we suggest to extend the life of your professional blowout:

USE A (GOOD) SHOWER CAP

We get it, you hate shower caps. They make you look weird, they make a lot of noise and most of the time they don’t even fit over your head properly or stay put. But hear us out because there’s a new player in the shower headwear game – SHHHOWER CAP. It’s made of a more durable material (no plastic noise) and has comfortable elastic and specialized shape so that it stays on your head and you don’t look like a muffin. 

SLEEP ON A SILK PILLOWCASE

While working to extend the life of your blowout, you should be avoiding frizz, bedhead and hair ‘friction’ like the plague. A silk pillowcase can help tremendously and on top of that, won’t soak up all your hairs moisture (which in turn, causes oil). For a complete breakdown of all the reasons you should switch to a silk pillowcase, read this.

RELY ON DRY SHAMPOO

Dry Shampoo will be your BBF until you finally decide to wash so pick one that soaks up oil for real and doesn’t cause weird buildup or leave a white powder residue. I’d reach for R+Co’s Death Valley or Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk.

CHANGE YOUR PART / STYLE + TOUCH UP ENDS

Ok so this is 3 in 1 advice but it’s too important not the mention. Just because you’re making a blowout last doesn’t mean you want your hair  to be the same every single day, does it? Change your part to cover greasy roots, change your style (a loose waves ponytail = perfect) and touch up your ends with a curling iron to breathe life into things mid-week.
