Tips for the Perfect Blowout

Jenn Bradford from DreamDry shared her tips for the perfect blowout to help you get one at home every day!

It may seem impossible, but if you follow these tips you can get the blowout of your dreams on a regular basis. Don't forget to share your blowout tips with Bethenny so we can all learn from each other!

Start with the rough dry. You have to get the hair at least 85% percent dry before starting to blowout your hair.

Then, add a serum to help protect your hair. It prevents damage without giving you a dirty, sticky look. If you use products on the roots, that's what starts feeling dirty after a few days.

Next, section the hair. Find the natural part and make that once section. Then, find recession to recession (by your ears). Continue until all hair is up except for the bottom layer.

Use tension with a round brush to shape the hair. Take it in any direction other than where it wants to lie so that you can keep it smooth. Start in the back and work your way to the front.

After all of your hair is dry, use a cool blast to make sure it's dry, and lock in the style.

Well, my hair ends up being really puffy even when I blow dry it and flat iron it (unless I go to the Dominican salon and they do a blow out). I've tried everything to make it "stay down" and be sleek but it's just puffy. I do live in Georgia so maybe it's the humidity. I've bought anti-frizz products and blow-out products. Nothing works. :-(

My mom has short hair and has been using a hot air brush for many years, I always thought I couldn't because my hair is longer and thicker. When I discovered that my bff of many years has been using the same hot hair brush, I went for it. (her hair is ttwice as long )
It's the best product, I honesstly dislike using blow dryers and those round brushes, the end result is not as nice as a hair stylist styling my hair, my hands also get tired after awhile.
I think this product is the best, it's light weight and if you have thick or frizzy hair it smooths it out. Of course that good old saying you get what you pay for, there are many different brands and different kinds of hot air brushes, the best and less expensive is the hot air brush by conair, it runs for about $45.
Bethnny, I think this product would be great for you hair, it doesn't look thick or to long.
Let me know if you get a chance to try it
BTW LOVE your show

Please does anyone know who designs the dress the hair stylist for the blowout demonstration was wearing? also I would love to hear tips on how to get the back of your hair when you are doing it yourself in a blowout. I have a hard time keeping tension and really getting the back of my hair straight because I dont have easy access the way a stylist does
