Natural Hair Blowout at Home
It took me forever to figure out my blow outs were struggling because of the wrong tools!
After changing products so many times and getting the same results, I decided to try new tools. Guess what? My natural hair blowouts went from zero to 100 real quick!
Preparing Your Hair For Blow Drying
Right after I finish washing I apply my blow dry cream and serum. Currently, I'm using Wella Perfect Me Lightweight Beauty Balm BB Lotion along with KeraCare Silken Seal Blow Drying Complex.
This step is key! Wrap your hair in a soft cotton t-shirt or tank top. Leave it on until your hair is mostly dry. For me, that's usually about 15 minutes.
After that, I twist that section of my hair (two-strand twist) and secure it with a clip. That keeps it detangled and out of the way while I continue working.
Essential Tools for a Natural Hair Blow Out
This may seem obvious, but your blowdryer is super important. If you're like me, spending more than $50 on a blow dryer seems ridiculous! I finally caved and bought a prestige blow dryer when I saved up enough Ulta Rewards points for $125 off the purchase. After doing a ton of research I bought the Rusk Speed Freak. It features ceramic and tourmaline to produce frizz-free, static-free shine and faster drying time.
This blow dryer lives up to its $100+ price tag. It has Three heat settings, two speeds, and a cool button. The concentrator nozzle is also included!
The width of the paddle is great! It allows me to dry large sections of my hair easily.
Because this blow dryer is so powerful, and the brush retains heat, I start with the warm setting to dry my hair. Then I do a couple passes on high to smooth it out.
Also, you want to make sure you're directing the air just over the bristles and not directly on your hair to prevent damage.
