The weather is finally starting to cool off some in NC so I set up an appointment for my seasonal blowout and trim. After posting a photo to Instagram I received a few questions asking how I maintained my blowout to last me throughout the week. First I'd like to say my blowouts usually last for about a week before it's produced just too much oil and I'm ready to go back to my curly fro. The picture above is from this morning, day 4 of my blowout. Here's how I maintain my blowout. 

  1. I wrap my hair nightly with a satin scarf and bonnet. I still have the scarf my grandma gave me in high school, it's perfect. 
  2. This week it's been raining cats and dogs. I make sure my hair is protected by wearing some sort of hat. This helps my hair last longer and protects it from the harsh weather. 
  3. I don't add any extra oil to my hair throughout the week. My hair produces so much oil that after a week it's time for me to try a different style or wash it. When my hair was longer I'd wear a bun the second week of my blowout just to change it up because I usually get bored with the bone straight look. 
  4. I don't sweat a lot at night or during the day so this helps my hair from frizz. If you sweat I would suggest maybe pin curling or sleeping with some sort of air blowing on you.

That's pretty much it. Not difficult at all, right?!

How do you maintain your blowout?
