A blowout is a hairstyling method used to straighten natural black hair by using a hairdryer with a comb attachment or a concentrated nozzle with either a paddle brush or a round brush. The idea is to lengthen tightly coiled textured hair but not to make the natural hair bone straight. Whatever your hair length. Check out blowout hairstyles for Black hair | Women.
Start by applying a heat protectant, from the roots to the ends, on freshly shampooed and conditioned hair to provide protection to the cuticle. Try Mizani Thermasmooth Style & Style Again, ORS Olive Oil Heat Protection Hair Serum or KeraCare Wonder 6 in 1 Thermal Protector.
Working in small easy-to-work sections, blowout your hair using the hairdryer on a medium heat. Repeat until you have dried all of your hair. Do not let the heat focus in one area for too long or it will cause damage to the hair shaft. Caution: do not blowout more than once a week however, if you notice excessive shedding using this technique, reduce it even further. Once you have finished blowing out your hair, you can then style it however you wish. See some of the hot looks from the spring / summer catwalk shows for inspiration.[/text_output]
