CC Beauty Live: The Perfect Blowout

I always hated having to style my hair a few days after getting a nice, bouncy blowout at the hair salon. It never looked as good as when my stylist did it, and I would hate my haircut because it looked stupid whenever I did it.

Well, those days are long gone (!!!!).

I like to think I’ve mastered the blowout, and dare I say it, I might be better than some stylists. Yeah, I went there. Honestly, it’s not that hard to get a perfect blowout. I do it every week, and if I can then you definitely can! This week, I’m laying out my steps to a perfect blowout and hopefully, you’ll never have to feel that post-salon depression again.

Life changing, right?

    after the shower, I start with Phytodéfrisant and Orofluido hair oil. Just a bit mixed together. I really love the Phyto stuff… it's better than any serum I've ever tried and works wonders. then, like you, i also use the tre semme heat tamer spray. it's great and cheap! at the end, sometimes i'll use a bit more orofluido to seal the ends if i don't want to use a flat iron. smells delish. :)

      Thanks steff! I've heard of Phyto I haven't tried it yet, I'm glad you like it! Maybe I will do a review :)

    Actually, the most important part of a good blow dry is to blow the cuticle of your hair shut. Every strand of hair is covered in what can best be described as scales, and when you blow them open (basically, whenever you don't blowdry your hair downwards, the same direction you brush it) you're blowing that cuticle open, which leads to tangles, frizz, and a lack of manageability. The heat protectant and shine serum are also really good things to use, but the key to a great blowdry is to blow downwards to shut the cuticles.

    1. Caitlin-University of Alabama says:

      Shelby, thanks for commenting! I don't recommend blow drying upward the entire time, but all of my stylists will blow dry upward for a few seconds to lift the roots so your blow out doesn't go flat. That's why I don't tell anyone to blow dry their hair upside down because that does open the cuticle and cause a lot of frizz.

    2. Shelby says:

      Yep, and there's actually a really smart trick for that too! If you want the hair (this is just an example because it's hard to explain, haha) on the right side of your part to have volume, comb it to the left and blow dry at the roots, still downwards. Then, when you part it back to where you actually want it, and the roots will have that awesome natural-looking lift. I hope that made sense, it's hard to explain without demonstrating.

      ANYWAY. Your CC Beauty Live videos are one of my favorite features on the site, looking forward to whatever you do next :)

      Yes I've done that before too!! Sometimes it gives me too much volume haha! Thanks for watching Shelby :)

    I love this! I use the same Tresemme spray, I love it because it doesn't seem to make my hair greasy at all. I need to find a good dry shampoo that I like, I've tried the tresemme kind and a couple others from friends, but I haven't found one I love yet. Any recommendations?

    1. Caitlin-University of Alabama says:

      Alex, I use Ojon's dry shampoo but not on that regular of a basis. If you find your hair tends to get greasy with dry shampoos, I'd try either baby powder or a hair powder. Bumble and Bumble has great spray on hair powders that are different colors for different hair shades. I hope this helps!

    I just got the T3 hair dryer you recommended forever ago and its makes a huge difference in my blowouts! Not only does it take way less time but my hair looks amazing too!
