The Best Secrets for Blowdrying

Leave a Comment

Whether you work at a Beauty Salon or you do your own hair, you want the same result: ridiculously gorgeous hair. That’s the reason why we have tried several techniques and followed top of the line tips from a vast number of hair experts and compiled them on this post for all hair lengths.

If your hair is short :Start by spritzing a leave-in conditioner from roots to ends (if your hair is hair, apply just on the bottom half). Then clip up the top section of hair. Starting at the back, blow-dry using a flat brush to sweep hair forward (this keeps it from getting puffy). Repeat on the sides. Let down the front. Blow-dry bangs using the Bang Control Hair Brush first, smoothing them with the brush from one side, then to the other. Unclip the rest and work back toward your crown until the top is all dry. To finish, rub a tiny dab of pomade between your fingers and pull it through the ends for a piece-y effect

If you have medium length hair  Use a voluminizer spray at the roots to add body, then apply leave-in. Blow dry your bangs with  a big, round brush, pulling them straight out from your forehead and aim the dryer's nozzle toward their ends. Dry the sides and ends without a brush until they're 95 percent done. Clip up the top and finish drying those sections, using the brush to pull hair taut, aiming the nozzle toward the ends.For the top section pull it straight up and point the dryer up too, this helps to lock in the lift.

If your hair is long Use a tiny bit of shine serum on the ends of your hair while it's damp then blow-dry all of your hair without a brush until most of the moisture is gone. Pull up the top sections of hair and clip them. Starting at the back, wind small sections of hair from the ends up to the scalp around a ceramic brush and hit with the heat until dry. Unravel hair from the brush. As you do, rotate your wrist so the hair curls on itself, forming a loose ringlet. Repeat until all hair is dry.

As women we are always in the hunt of ways of making our hair grow faster. We know it is not an easy task, especially if you want to go the natural way. Learning the right methods to grow  your hair faster will make the task easier! Today we are sharing  6 super tips on how to return to thick, luscious, long locks!

Hot Oils Massages
This is one of the hottest  tips for making your hair grow faster ever and it really works! Just warm up coconut oil, rub it into your scalp, wait a few minutes before rinsing it off, and you'll see the difference -- your hair will feel thicker, softer, and longer! Other oils that you can also use for this type of treatments are Jojoba oil, olive oils, almond oil and most other oils will do wonders; just warm them up and apply thoroughly.

Just Drink Water

You know what stops your hair from growing? Toxins!  Drinking water helps the body to process and flush out toxins faster and that’s why it’s a natural method that will make your hair grow a lot faster. Drinking about 8 cups of water a day, is not only good for your body, you will feel way better and  your hair will get stronger. When your hair is stronger it grows faster. Drinking water also hydrates your hair  from the inside out. Hydrated hair is healthy hair because, when dry, your hair is much more likely to break.

Brush Love
Investing in a good hair brush will save you lots of time in your hair growth journey. Also
brushing your hair once or twice in the morning and once or twice at night will stimulate the circulation in your scalp, feeding the hair follicles and ensuring undisturbed hair growth. Don’t brush hair when it is we because that causes severe breakage, which ultimately foils hair growth. If you need a new brush click here.

You say Patata I say Potato
When your system lacks vitamins your hair gets brittle.  For instance Vitamin B, as well as optimal amounts of vitamin A and C are vitall for hair growth, so stock up on your vitamins and your hair will get longer and thicker! A natural alternative  is to wash and rinse with potato water to get your vitamins!

If you want  grow really long hair, you need to have a super healthy scalp and also nurture your hair. A deep conditioner treatment each week helps a ton! You can either buy it, or make it at home. One of our favorites is the Mayo, Egg whites and plain yougurt, you whip everything in a bowl and apply it to your hair then put it up in a twist and put on your shower cap leave it on for 30 minutes, and voilá beautiful silky hair.  

Apple Cider Vinegar

If you're want   really long hair, apple cider vinegar is the bomb! Basically, all you have to do is mix apple cider vinegar with a bit of water and  use it to rinse your hair after every shampoo. This stimulates your hair follicles and helps it grow quicker!

Warmer and sunnier days are just ahead of us. Time to play with color, the days where you look as pale as snow white are finally gone! It’s finally time to get that sun-kissed glow, here are the best summer makeup tips you need to know to look gorgeous and beautiful all summer long.

Fake it don’t bake it. Bronzer can become your BFF if you learn how to apply it correctly. Before you head out to relish some well deserved sun, score a faux, sun-kissed glow with theBalm’s Betty-Lou Manizer. Betty-Lou is a silky smooth, all-in-one bronzing highlighter, shimmer and shadow. Apply  it on the apples of the cheeks if you just want a little tint, or lightly apply it over your forehead and right below your cheekbones. To make it look more natural make sure to blend any harsh lines.

Prime first. Do you know why your foundation looks uneven? When you sweat the oils of your skin tend to separate the pigments in foundation. A primer creates a sort of a shield preventing this the oils to mix with your foundation. 

The Balm Prime Time  helps even out skin tone and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores. Herbal extracts and antioxidants soothe and repair while keeping your makeup looking fresh and flawless all day long.

Keep your eyes free of smears by going waterproof, choose a mascara that is enriched with essential oils to nourish your eyelashes, like the Balm Body Builder which will pump up your lashes and give them the lift they need. It’s  heavy-duty, water-resistant, ultra-black mascara and pumps up lashes to their maximum volume, adding length, thickness and impressive definition. It’s also clump-free and  boasts a highly pigmented formula and deep-black finish that won't smudge, smear or weaken throughout the day. Specially formulated with vitamin E, panthenol and bamboo, The Body Builder works to condition and strengthen lashes to their fullest and foxiest

Go for stains.While stains on your clothes is something that you should avoid, during summer, lip stains are the way to go: they don’t feel heavy on your lips and won’t roll off with sweat. Lioele Pop Tint is a soft and moisture absorbing milk lotion. It has a lovable tint (pink,orange or cherry) to give you 

a clear and transparent glow and will plant a kiss of "see-

through" tint on your cheeks and lips. Provides hours of 

smudge-proof and water-proof durability, meaning that it 

won't rub off easily and will last for a long time.
