Master the At-Home Blowout + Dove Giveaway

Master the At-Home Blowout + Dove Giveaway

Doing your own blowout is tricky. My hairdryer and I have been frenemies for many, many years. And while I’ve mastered the art of the flat brush home blowout, managing a round brush with a hair dryer has always proved too tricky.

Now that fall has arrived and the frizz-inducing Texas humidity has thankfully lessened, it’s blowout season. Thankfully, my friends at Dove have provided this great tutorial for getting that sleek, but full hair look. I love straight and smooth, but I do not do flat. Here’s the step-by-step process used by Dove celebrity stylist Mario Antón.

  1. Follow these steps to recreate a voluminous blowout at home. It’s easier than you think.
  2. Wash your hair with Dove Hair Moisture Oxygen shampoo and conditioner to give your hair the appearance of 95 percent more body and volume after you wash. *
  3. Use a micro-fiber towel, which absorbs most of the excess water, to towel dry your hair and press much of the moisture out of it.
  4. Invest in a professional hair dryer if possible. Many have heat control settings, so you can adjust the intensity and helping to reduce the chances of burning or drying out your hair.
  5. Divide your hair in four to six sections and dry one at a time to make it easier to manage and style.
  6. Use a round brush that’s 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter, which lets you create a smooth, polished look.
  7. Keep the dryer about 2 to 3 inches away from the scalp to avoid causing unnecessary damage, and be sure to use a heat protector.
  8. Finish your look with Style + Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray, which helps hold your hairstyle without giving your hairdo a hard or heavy finish.
  9. Extra tip: Use a dry shampoo like Dove Hair Dry Shampoo so the blowout will last longer.

* Compared with flat hair.

I’m giving away a Dove Prize Pack to help you get your best blowout. Dove has kindly provided full-size haircare products and I added the round brush! One winner will receive a five-piece set including:

  • Dove Hair Moisture Oxygen Shampoo
  • Dove Hair Moisture Oxygen  Conditioner

  • Dove Hair Dry Shampoo
  • One round brush
