One of the most popular questions I get are about my hair. Yes, I have a lot of it. It is very long and thick. But what you may not know – probably because it is always styled – my hair is rebellious in it’s very nature. It is frizz-prone, wavy and dry, but the plus side in that is my hair doesn’t get greasy, it has lots of volume and it holds curl really well.
So today, I’m sharing with you all how I blowout my hair – the easy way. When you think about a true blowout, it typically involves a round brush and drying your hair, bit by bit. While the result is amazing, it takes forever. Let’s be honest, I don’t have time for that (and you probably don’t either). This takes a fraction of the time for a similar result.
For this, you will need three types of brushes (a paddle brush, a straightening brush and a round brush). I’m using the Goody Clean Radiance Oval Cushion, Goody Amp It Up Medium Round Brush and Goody Straight Talk Boar Styler Brush. You will also need a hair dryer, a straightening iron and some shine serum.
Start by fully combing your wet hair. Make sure your hair is fully detangled. Comb your hair back and off to the opposite side that you normally part your hair. This will give you more volume.
Start by blow drying your hair with the nozzle down. Blowing with your hair rather than against it will help to fight against frizz. Blow your hair until it is about 40-50% dry. Then, use the Goody Straight Talk brush to dry the chunks of hair around your face (blow in the opposite direction that it will lay) and at your crown. Then, use the brush like a paddle to blow your ends straight, like the last image.
Once your hair is 75% dry, apply your favorite shine serum you your hair, like you are gathering your hair to create a pony tail and then apply to ends. Finish drying your hair by using the same paddle technique to straighten and smooth ends. Then take the round brush, to give volume and bounce to the chunks surrounding your face and crown. Focus especially on your bangs.
At this point, your hair should be almost fully dry. Then take a straightener to any spots that need smoothing. The goal is not to straighten your hair, but to give it a bit of bounce. I use it to smooth any kinks that I typically get around my face as well.
When using the straightener, angle it at a 90 degree angle to your hair. This will give it the bounce that I was talking about, but not curl it. That’s it! You have what I call a “flowout” (a fake blowout).
You can find all of the Goody hair brushes I used at Walmart.
