blow is a unique salon in New York City dedicated to 1 thing: the art of the perfect blowout. Technicians there offer blowdry classes, where students learn how to get a salon-quality blowout at home. The blowdry bar recently launched their own line of haircare products to make your at-home blowout that much better. They now offer shampoos, conditioners, and a wide range of styling products. My favorite is the Heat is On Protective Styling Mist ($18).
Spritz this liberally on damp hair after towel-drying. It cushions your strands while the heat of the hairdryer is beating down on them. The heat will do less damage than it would without a protecting spray, resulting in smoother hair and less breakage.
Daily shampooing isn’t good for your hair; it strips strands of natural oils and makes hair appear dull. I am a fan of the concept of dry shampoo, but dislike the matte effect traditional powders have on my hair. This mist is the perfect re-styler; it has all the great properties of dry shampoo, but without taking away hair’s natural shine. Spritz it on dry hair in need of freshening up, style with the hairdryer, and your hair looks clean and freshly-washed. It also rids hair of odors like regular dry shampoo.
Really, what’s not to love?
