3 Ways to Make Your Blowout Last Longer

Besides the mani/pedi, the other indulgence that many of us ladies (and those across the country) have indulged in is the blow-out, for us New Yorkers, we go to the The Drybar. I’ve written about The Drybar before and continue to go back and back, and back. Since a blowout is a $50 investment ($40 + $10 tip) it’s wise to learn the tricks to make it last longer.

During the past year The Drybar has opened up in my neighborhood (so lucky!!!), I’ve figured out how to use the best products to keep that blowout last longer for 4 days (Five is just a bit too much for me.) Not a bad ROI for $50. That’s $12.50 per day for looking beautiful, and not having to worry about your hair in the morning. Below are my 3 ways to make your blowout last longer. Note this post contains affiliate links.

1. Hair Elastics. At night, before you go to sleep, put your hair up into a very high ponytail basically on top of your head. This keeps your beautiful new blow-out from getting crushed. 

2. Use a dry shampoo. I go back and forth between, Drybar’s Dry Shampoo for Brunettes (they have one for blonds, too!) and BlowPro Faux Dry Dry Shampoo, 1.7 oz. They all do the job really well, and keep your hair smelling really good, especially DryBar’s. (My mother-in-law said so.)

3. Use a Good Shower Cap. I received BlowPro The Perfect Shower Cap, 1 ea at an event about a year ago, and it really is pretty perfect. It has a tight elastic so no water can come in; is oversized so it can accommodate your stylin’ hair; and the best part — it’s 100% lined with a terry lining to soak up any extra moisture.

I’ve read about some people who sleep on a satin pillow case or put your hair up in a silky scarf, but I would get myself tangled up in the scarf, and I’m more of a cotton girl myself.

So what are you waiting for? Go out there and make your blowout appointment!
