It’s no secret that I love a good blow out. If you’re like me, you enjoy the art of preserving a blowout almost as much at the blowout itself. Sure, it’s not as relaxing, but girl, you can save a lot of time by not washing that hair, right? Right. I’ve partnered with NuMe to show you how to get a perfect blowout at home or on-the-go and to ensure that it lasts just as long as you do.
I use NuMe’s Jet Setter Pro kit which has been a godsend since my family of four shares one small bathroom. Not a typo. I have to admit, I was skeptical that it would powerful enough for my mane — I mean, does size matter when it comes to blowdryers? No, it does not. It has 1200 watts and dries hair just as effectively as my full-sized blow dryer which is 1875 watts. No noticeable difference in dry time and can easily be stored in my small drawers? I’m in.
So you want a long-lasting blowout you can do at home or on-the-go? Here’s how I do it:
-Dry hair with a microfiber towel. It really helps smooth frizz, speed up dry time and allows you to comfortably procrastinate getting ready.
-Use a heat protectant. NuMe’s acts as a moisturizer making hair more manageable.
-30 min after showering, release hair from the towel and dry with your blowdryer and a round brush. The one I am using here has antimicrobial properties so your brush is always clean and a ceramic coating ensures your curls are voluminous and soft. Even better, the brush turns white when it is hot so you know it’s ready to style.
-Once dry, use a wand to create waves. You can see exactly how I make mine in the video, but essentially I move the wand back and forth from root to ends while holding the last inch or so at the end tightly. This gives the curls a looser, more lived in look.
-Finish up by straightening any curled ends or fringe to give it all that beachy look.
-Spray with a texture spray for hold and tousle your locks with your fingers until it’s how you like it.
Pro tip: I find that it usually looks best on the second day so don’t be discouraged if it looks too polished on day one.
Here’s the video outlining all the steps. I had my extensions in when I filmed this as I am sure you can tell. Sure feels good to have them out since we are having a crazy heat wave this week. Also don’t mind the time I save on my blowouts now. 🙂 Thank you for reading!
