Usually during the summer season our heat styling tools get a bit of a break. However, for those who want to rock smooth straight hairstyles achieving the perfect blow out is necessary. Check out a few tips we’ve listed below to give you a flawless blow out each and every time!

1.Wash your hair. You can use your regular shampoo, but for better blow drying effects and |protection, try washing with a moisturizing shampoo.

2. Towel off your hair slightly, just enough to stop the dripping. Don’t rub your hair with the towel as the friction causes split ends, frizzy dryness and generally does a lot of damage. Instead, gently wrap the towel around your hair and squeeze, like blotting the water out of your hair.

3. Separate your hair into sections. The bigger the section, the longer it will take to dry. It’s best to go for 4-6 sections, but make sure nothing is tangled.

4.Start blow drying at the top/roots, about six inches away from your scalp. Maintain this distance throughout, so nothing burns. Never blow dry in an upwards motion, as this causes more damage. Plus, by drying the hair on your scalp, it prevents the moisture from soaking the rest of your hair.

5.Leave your hair a little bit damp. Don’t ever dry until your whole head is completely dry – you need to leave in some moisture, so your hair won’t dry out, and become frizzy or damaged. Leave it slightly damp, so it will dry naturally in about 5-10 minutes.

6.Finish with a blast of cold air, to lock in shine. Brush through your hair gently, or de-tangle it with your fingers. If needed, apply a moisturizing or anti-frizz serum and brush it through evenly. Style as usual!
