WHAT’S A BLOWOUT?
A blowout is when you blow-dry and style your hair with a round brush.
(It’s easier said than done!) LOL
Most of the time you end up with a big frizzy mess or your brush gets tangled up in your hair. A few of us get the soft smooth bouncy results you’d get from getting one professionally done!
ARE BLOWOUTS BAD FOR YOUR HAIR?
This is all dependent on your hair. How healthy is your hair right now? Is your hair chemically treated? Do you have naturally curly hair? Is your hair dry & brittle? When blowouts are done BY a professional, you should be in good hands. The hairdresser will let you know if she (or he) does not feel like your hair can handle the heat.
However, given that your hair is in good shape they will most likely use heat protecting products and they will know how to blow dry your hair for the maximum shine and health of your hair.
HOW LONG DOES A BLOWOUT LAST?
It depends on your hair, your stylist, and the products they use. Blowouts should last for 3 days up to a week. The more care and time put into each section when being dried and styled will help the look last longer, too. Using the correct products to hold the style without collecting a build up as time goes on will also play a role.
Finally, the texture of your hair plays a role. It seems like more textured hair holds longer in general vs. fine, less-bodied hair.
Also, how you sleep on it (try a silk pillowcase) and how active and sweaty you get also can affect how long the blowout will last.
