Secrets to Keeping Your Blow-dry Looking Fabulous!

Everyone loves the look and feel of their hair after a blow-dry, but how do you maintain it? Here are a few tips and tricks so you can extend the life of your blow-dry and keep it looking fabulous:

It all starts with loving your hair and keeping it healthy. Healthy hair, particularly the ends, can withstand the intensity of a blow-drying. Keep your hair at its best condition with regular visits to the salon to get rid of split ends. Split ends can move up the length of the hair if they are left unattended, so regular trims are important. You can also keep the ends healthy with regular deep conditioning treatments that you can easily do at home. A shower cap can help intensify the effects of a hair mask or hot oil treatment. TIARA Shower Cap is a perfect option for this--just turn it inside out to use with your conditioner and see the results instantly.

Keep your hands off your hair! As tempting as it can be to constantly touch or twirl your hair, it’s time to stop. Your hands can transfer dirt and oils to your hair so try not to touch your lovely locks too much post-blow-dry.

Get the right pillowcase for your hair. Cotton pillowcases can catch hair and give you a bad case of bedhead. To prevent messy morning hair, you can invest in a silk pillowcase. The natural fibers contain amino acids that are kind to our hair and skin. Silk also wicks moisture and is hypoallergenic. The best silk pillowcases are a specific type--mulberry silk with a charmeuse weave and they can be pricey. (Read more on the benefits and details about silk pillowcases here.) If you’re looking for a more cost effective option, try satin which, like silk, pulls less on your hair and is gentle on your skin. You can also wrap your hair up in a silk scarf to protect it.

Don’t overdo it with product. It’s tempting to reach for the dry shampoo the morning after your blow-dry, but try not to overdo it. Dry shampoo can dull hair and leave residue that weighs it down. Website PRÊTE recommends that you use a spritz of hairspray at the roots to boost volume. Simply flip your hair over and use short bursts of hairspray at the roots, then flip it back and work the product in with your fingertips. If you find yourself in need of dry shampoo a couple of days after your blow-dry, use it sparingly and work it in well with your fingertips.

Shower right! You can shower and still preserve your blow-dry. A well-designed shower cap is the key. The TIARA Shower Cap is made to fit hair of all lengths and textures. With its wide forehead band and terry cloth lining, it will protect your hair without leaving red marks on your forehead and secure your style.

A great blow-dry should last you at least a few days. With these tips, you can be sure it will last long and look fabulous!
