Now that I have a baby, my hair routine is short – ok, it’s more like non-existent. But if I’m going to dedicate precious time to my hair, I want to use products that keep it looking good for longer. Lately, I’ve been loving a few different things that have made a big difference in my quest for the longest lasting blowout. Ever. Here they are:
I know, five products for a blowout? First of all, I only use three when I dry my hair the first day. The other two are reserved for upkeep during the week. I can honestly say that I can get 5 days worth of oil-free hair when I combine these products. And I don’t have thick hair either. I have normal to fine hair – I just have a lot of it. So if I can go a few days in between washes and still maintain a great mane, then I’m all for it. Here’s what I do:
First I comb through about a dime-size amount of the Prime Style Extender. Next I spray in some Root Pump around my crown. After combing that through, I blow dry my hair until completely dry. (Refer to my post on how to get the best blow out for step by step instructions.) Afterward, I put about 2 drops of the Pureology oil (I buy the travel size because a little goes a long way), concentrating on the middle of my hair down to the ends. After a couple days, a little wave starts creeping in, which I’m happy to accept and enhance with the Oribe beach spray. It smells amazing, which is why I choose a dry shampoo that doesn’t have a strong scent. I spray some of the Rene Furterer at the roots on day 3 or 4, which helps absorb excess oil. If my ends are ever feeling dry, I just add a few drops of the oil to make it silky again. By day 5, it’s probably up in a top knot or braid, but still looks fresh!
