How To Make Your Natural Hair Blow Out Last


Looking for ways to keep your natural straighter longer? Are you tired of spending hours blowing out your natural hair and it not lasting like you want? Girl, I have been there, and believe me I know that it can be frustrating. You spend all this time going to your stylist to get a super cute blow out. Or you spend time doing it yourself and you want it to last right? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

I am here to tell you how you can get your blow out to last 2 weeks. I know you can because I have done it! Here are 4 ways to help make your blow out last up to 2 weeks.

keep your natural hair straight longer

Use a Heat Protector

Before you blow dry and flat-iron it is important that you use a heat protector.

Start your Style with A Lot of Curls

The more curls you start out with the better. The more curls you add while you are doing your blowout, the less likely you will have to rely on heat styling over the next few days. The curls will gradually fall, but you will not have to worry about having flat hair or using more heat to re-style your hair.

Avoid water like the plague

You want to avoid all products that are water based. So this means certain edge controls and gels. Don’t use too much edge control because you don’t want your hair to revert back  or get weighed down by too much product. Make sure that your hair is protected in the shower as well, put that shower cap on we are not judging you.

Wrap your hair at night or anytime

Yes EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. You should be wrapping your hair up. If I am just around the house and not going anywhere I make sure to keep my hair wrapped up. This will definitely keep your blow out lasting a few days longer. Wrapping your hair is essential when working out as well. You definitely don’t want to sweat your tresses out while you are getting your sweat on. In my experience my hair has lasted longer when I wrap my hair when I am working out.

By following these tips you can make your blow out last for a few weeks. That’s a good amount of time because I know the struggle of straightening your hair, or getting it straightened by a professional. xoxo
