Achieving the Perfect Blowout at Home: Fluff’s Ultimate Guide

Bring the salon experience into your home with our guide to achieving the perfect blowout! Here’s a step-by-step approach to get you that professional look, with a touch of Fluff magic.

Step 1: Prep Your Hair

Begin by washing your hair with a high-quality shampoo and conditioner. To add an extra lift, use a volumizing shampoo. We recommend the Alter Ego Italy line for ultimate hair pampering right in your bathroom.

Step 2: Towel Dry Your Hair, But Gently

Gently towel-dry your hair to about 60-70% dryness before starting the blowout process. We recommend using a microfiber towel to minimize damage and frizz. Squeeze the hair with the towel, do not rub the hair,  Rubbing causes damage to the hair and also frizz.  Squeezing excess moisture is more gentle to the hair and helps keep the hair cuticle smooth.  

Step 3: Apply a Heat Protectant

Shield your hair from potential heat damage by applying a heat protectant. This creates a barrier between your hair and the heat, keeping it healthy and shiny. We stock several excellent options at Fluff’s retail area.

Step 4: Section Your Hair

Sectioning makes the blowout process more manageable. Depending on your hair thickness, divide it into 4-6 sections and use clips to hold them in place.

Step 5: Time to Blow-dry

Blow-dry your hair starting from the roots, moving to the mid-lengths, and finally, the ends. Always keep the dryer’s nozzle downward to help smooth your hair cuticles. Our favorite dryers? Ga.Ma. Italy, available at Fluff, is known for its excellent performance.

Step 6: Round Brush Magic

Use a round brush as you dry each section. Place the round brush under your hair and move it slowly down to the ends, following it with the dryer. This creates that salon-style bounce and volume.

Step 7: Cool It Down

Once you’re done with all sections, switch your dryer to the cool setting and give your hair a quick once-over. This helps to ‘set’ your style, adding shine and reducing frizz.

Step 8: Final Touches  

Finish your blowout with a few drops of hair serum for extra shine and softness. To prolong the life of your blowout, try to avoid touching your hair too much, as the oils from your hands can weigh it down and make it look greasy. Pro tip: Spritz dry shampoo in your clean hair along your part and around hair line.  This sets your dry shampoo up for success absorbing dirt and oil BEFORE it has a chance to settle.  Re-spritz before working out and before going to bed. 

Common Mistakes to Avoid:

  • Skipping heat protectant: Always remember to apply a heat protectant before blow-drying.
  • Blow-drying soaking wet hair: Towel-dry your hair to remove excess water before blow-drying. It reduces damage and also saves time.
  • Holding the dryer too close to your hair: This can cause overheating and damage your hair. Always maintain a safe distance!
  • Not using a nozzle.  A nozzle helps direct the hair flow preventing frizz.  

Practice makes perfect – so get going and enjoy your gorgeous, bouncy hair. Remember, a stunning blowout is a surefire way to turn heads, even if you’re just making a grocery run! Stay gorgeous!

Happy Fluffing!
