For a while, I had the funds and time to get a blowout at a salon once or twice a week. Every Friday after work I would get my hair done so it would look nice all weekend and I would schedule another blowout if I had an event or date planned that week. It would take the girls less than an hour to wash and blow out my hair to perfection. It seems crazy to think that someone would pay to get their hair done, but I think we can all agree that we would pay extra to have a good hair day!
Fast forward to today when I do not have the money or the time in my week to get my hair done. For months, I would straighten my hair in the morning or at night before bed but after a while, I started to see the damage on my hair with all of the heat. One night before bed, my hair was soaking wet and I didn’t have enough time to air dry it before I straightened it. My goal was to go to bed asap, so I grabbed my hair dryer and a round brush to blowdry my hair. For some reason, I had been neglecting my hair dryer and only using my straightener.
After using my hairdryer and a round brush, my hair was dry and perfectly styled in a very short amount of time. The volume, no frizz, and shine were amazing and something I could never achieve with just my hair straightener. So now for the last few weeks, my nighttime routine is to wash my hair and sit in front of my tv and blow-dry my hair. With the right products, I can get away with only washing my hair twice a week and having a good hair day every single day!
THE PRODUCTS I USE
T3 Hair Dryer // Yes, it is a bit pricey and I am sure you have a hairdryer already. But the T3 brand is a game changer! My hair is thick, frizzy and there is a whole lot of hair to dry and manage! This one dries my hair super fast and leaves my hair shiny and smooth.
Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray // I apply this heat spray before I use any hot tool on my hair to protect my hair from heat damage. It manages my frizz, makes my hair shiny and conditions my hair without weighing it down. It also makes my hair smell amazing and feels really soft!
Blow Dry It Quick Dry Primer Spray // I originally purchased this product because I had a coupon on L’Oreal haircare products so I wasn’t sure if it was going to work or not. With just a few sprays on damp hair, my hair dries a lot faster when I don’t use it. It’s also another great spray to protect your hair from heat damage. The primer helps with blow drying my hair to get a sleek styled look without a hair straightener. This is the secret product I use to get that salon blow out soft hair look!
Extraordinary Oil Deep Nourishing Treatment // A small pump of oil helps treat dehydrated and dry hair. After I blow dry my hair with a round brush, I will use one pump of the oil to apply to my ends and then work my way up to my scalp before using my blow dryer again briefly to create waves. The oil can be used before shampoo to nourish your hair, before styling for heat protection or with dry hair to add shine and softness. I have tried so many oils and serums that make my hair feel heavy and greasy, but I only have good things to say about this one!
