Tips For Making Your Blowout Last Through Workout Days

If you’re someone who enjoys a good daily workout, you probably think that you can’t take advantage of amazing blowouts. Women who don’t go to the gym have the luxury of enjoying grease-free styled tresses for several days, if they’ve got dry shampoo on hand. But for ladies who love to sweat it out, skipping out on a shower just doesn’t feel like an option. A cathartic treadmill session doesn’t have to ruin your hair lewk. You simply need to know the tricks to make that blowout last through your workouts.

It Starts With The Blowout 

The blowout itself needs to be able to stand the test of time. This doesn’t mean that you need the most expensive blowout either. Just pay attention to reviews and let your stylist know that you’d like to go light on the product. They need to be able to optimize their product layering so that your flawless look lasts. If you plan on doing your own blowout at home, make sure you’ve got the right tools and products on hand. For instance, you are going to want a dryer that allows you to control your strokes. The Platform Blowout Handless Blow Dryer is perfect for blowouts because it combines the nozzle and handle of a traditional dryer in a distinctive shape that provides control and ease for fast drying and styling.

However, product selection and a light layering technique are the most important. FHI Heat products are all silicone-free. Products containing silicone will actually weigh down your locks and attract grease. You only need two products: Just a drop of Pump It Up Blowout Serum and a small amount of Volumizing Mousse to prep your tresses before you style. Using mousse instead of finisher will help to avoid stiffness while keeping the look in-tact.

Grab Dry Shampoo, A Flexible Hair Tie, And A Headband

Dry shampoo is an excellent way to absorb excess sweat and oil after a workout; however, it’s not the only thing you need. Be cautious of how you treat your blown-out tresses during the workout itself. Keep your hair up, but not in a ponytail. A ponytail will add a noticeable crease to your crown. Instead, use this technique: Flip your head and give yourself a middle part. Twist the two large sections created by the part and roll them into a bun. Secure with a scrunchie or other flexible elastic. Next, add a sweat-absorbent headband to wick away the moisture from your neck and forehead.

Stay Cool

Close to impossible to do during a workout, we know! What we mean is that when you are done with your training, get to a cooler environment. Then, use a blowdryer to blow cool air onto your scalp. Doing this immediately after a workout will not only feel great, but it will keep you from accumulating sweat - a blowout’s enemy - on your scalp and around your crown.

Keep Those Hands Far Away

When your hair looks lush and beautiful, it can be tempting to run your fingers through it. But your hands contain oils that you might not be able to see or feel. When you touch your hair, you transfer those oils into your locks. Don’t touch your blowout unless you are brushing it out or styling touch-ups. In that case, grab a Thermal Styling Brush to brush while you restyle your look. This tool is an amazing investment (when combined with dry shampoo) because it will extend the life of your look for days.
