A blow out is one of the best ways to manage your natural hair. It makes hair softer and more manageable, especially for styling purposes. Even if you want to simply tie your hair into a high bun for work or a special occasion, a blow out will help to keep your natural hair in check and in place for most of the day. Here’s how to blow-out your natural hair.
Make sure that your hair is untangled has no knots, by spraying hair with water and detangling with fingers or wide-tooth comb, starting with the tips and moving down to roots.
Cleanse your hair, with ideally an organic shampoo and work into a lather.
Massage conditioner into hair and leave for 2 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
Remove excess water with a towel or t-shirt to leave hair damp and not dripping wet.
Add leave-in conditioner and let your hair air dry for a few minutes.
Once about 60% dry, divide hair into 4 sections, depending on hair length, and apply a heat protectant. This is an important step as hair needs protection from heat.
Blow dry your hair, with a nozzle. To prevent tangling and damage, blow dry in small and easy to work with sections. Apply hair food on scalp as well as a peanut size amount on your hair during blow drying. Make sure that heat is not too high.
Finish off with cool hair to help seal the hair and style as desired.
You can keep the hair in cornrows or a high bun to keep it straighter for longer. Enjoy!
