What is a Blowout?

What is a Blowout?

Your hairstyle is a natural part of your daily look. Going to the salon is an opportunity to talk with the experts and have treatments that make your hair easy to work with between salon visits. Naturally, most of us speak of coloring and cutting since those are the noticeable changes that happen in your local salon.

One often overlooked option for giving your hair that extra volume and shine is the blowout. Let’s learn what it is and how it can positively impact the look and feel of your hair.

What Is A Blowout?

A blowout is a unique way to style your hair using only heat and air to create smooth, shiny tresses with plenty of volume. Most blowout treatments at the salon include a complete shampoo and conditioning process and applying the perfect products to bring out your hair’s best.

Your stylist will also give you tips about how these products work so you can duplicate some of the results at home. A typical blowout will include the following steps:

Shampoo and conditioner – Your stylist begins with washing and conditioning your hair. The shampoo boosts your hair’s health, while the conditioner hydrates to improve its shine.

Towel dry – Although you might think you are heading for heat next, the truth is that your stylist is focused on pulling extra moisture out of your hair, so it is gently towel-dried.

Detangling and heat protection – Before your stylist starts heating your hair, they will use a detangling product to comb through it to find any tangles or knots. Next, depending on the condition of your hair, they may opt to apply a heat protective spray.

Blow Dry – Now is the fun part. Using a ceramic brush, your stylist will blow dry your hair. Since the brush is designed to hold heat from the dryer and transfer it to your hair, you see frizz eliminated, resulting in an incredibly smooth look.

Setting your style – Once your hair is dry, styling products are applied to cool it and set its style.

After a blowout, you leave the salon feeling beautiful, and your hair looks healthy and sleek. The effects can last anywhere from two to three days. You can ask your stylist questions about the products used, allowing you to maintain the look and health of your hair in between visits to the salon. Most blowouts cost around $45 or less, but some involve more high-end services, thus increasing the price.

Brazilian Blowout

Unlike a regular blowout, a Brazilian blowout involves smoothing treatments with keratin-containing products being applied before your hair is dried. The goal of this treatment is to intensify the shine of your hair and make your hair more manageable daily.

Even the fine strands of your hair can benefit from keratin, which is known to protect hair from environmental damage. Brazilian blowouts can cost anywhere from $90 to $400, but the effects can last up to 12 weeks.

Maintaining the effects of your blowout at home involves sleeping with a silk or satin pillowcase, using a dry shampoo at the roots between washes, and using products to protect your hair from humidity and moisture.

Whether you opt for a regular blowout or a high-end one, your hair will thank you. Call today to schedule this service or any other with one of our stylists.
