Everyone loves the look and feel of their hair after a blow-dry, but how do you maintain it? Here are a few tips and tricks so you can extend the life of your blow-dry and keep it looking fabulous:
Keep Up With Split Ends:
Healthy hair, particularly the ends, can withstand the intensity of blow-drying. Keep your hair in its best condition with regular visits to the salon to get rid of split ends. Split ends can move up the length of the hair if they are left unattended, so regular trims are important.
How To Prevent Split Ends:
You can prevent split ends with regular deep conditioning treatments that you can easily do at home, or check out some that we love here (hyperlink to blog #1). TIARA Shower Cap can help intensify the effects of a hair mask or hot oil treatment.
Keep Your Hands Off:
As tempting as it can be to constantly touch or twirl your hair, it’s time to stop. Your hands can transfer dirt and oils to your hair so try not to touch your lovely locks too much post-blow-dry.
Avoid Hair Breakage While You Sleep:
Get the right pillowcase or night cap for your hair. Cotton pillowcases can catch hair and give you a bad case of bedhead. To prevent messy morning hair, try the TIARA Night Cap to protect your hair against the effects of friction through the night. We designed the Night Cap with premium silk to wick moisture away.
Don’t overdo it
It’s tempting to reach for the dry shampoo the morning after your blow-dry, but try not to overdo it. Dry shampoo can dull hair and leave a residue that weighs it down. PRÊTE recommends that you use a spritz of hairspray at the roots to boost volume. Simply flip your hair over and use short bursts of hairspray at the roots, then flip it back and work the product in with your fingertips. If you find yourself in need of dry shampoo a couple of days after your blow-dry, use it sparingly and work it well with your fingertips.
You can shower and still preserve your blow-dry. A well-designed shower cap is key. The TIARA Shower Cap is made to fit hair of all lengths and textures. With its wide forehead band and terry cloth lining, it will protect your hair without leaving red marks on your forehead and secure your style.
A great blow-dry should last you at least a few days. With these tips, you can be sure it will last longer and look fabulous!
