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. And, of course, we know what to do. Keep scrolling to discover how to make a blowout last longer with four easy hair hacks!
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 a 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 hair’s 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 BFF until you finally decide to wash. Pick one that soaks up oil for real and doesn’t cause weird buildup or leave a white powder residue. You can find the right dry shampoo for your hair type here.
Chance Your Part or Style and Touch Up Ends
Ok so this is 3-in-1 advice but it’s too important not to 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 = perfection), and touch up your ends with a curling iron to breathe life into things mid-week.
