Aside from practicing your blow dry technique and finding a rhythm to get into, it’s important to accept some help—and that’s where amazing product comes in. Prepping your hair with the right ones can protect, plump, or smooth your strands and preserve your hard work for a longer-lasting blowout. Keep scrolling to see five products that deliver the perfect blow dry every single time.
All the hype about Living Proof is legit—their products are the bomb dot com. This thickening cream will work wonders for girls with finer strands who are looking for extra lift. Although it’s a cream, it never weighs down hair.
Apply a generous amount of this creme to damp hair prior to your blow-dry to protect it from any heat damage. It gives a smooth, frizz-free finish to any style— simple as that.
This spray does more than just enhance your blowout. It cuts dry time in half, which, when you’re doing your own blow-dry, is something you can come to fully appreciate. I prefer this one over Oribe’s Volumista Mist Spray because it doesn’t leave finer hair feeling sticky or make it difficult to get a round brush through. While it’s a bit on the pricey side, you need only use a minimal amount to see the results, so it should last you a good while.
This moisturizing lotion is packed with nourishing oils including olive oil, coconut oil, organ oil, and jojoba oil that leave your strands feeling silky smooth sans greasy residue. Plus, it helps fight humidity throughout the day.
With obliphica sea buckthorn berry oil as its star ingredient, this spray does it ALL—adds shine, lifts the root, texturizes, and repairs split ends. Now that’s bomb in a nutshell.
