Perfect Blow-Dry At Home: 3 Easy Steps | in collaboration with Goldwell

Hair: Blow Dry At Home - Goldwell Kerasilk Style | You Rock My Life

One of the best feelings when leaving the hair salon is that fresh and bouncy feeling of you hair, isn’t it? The other day I treated myself to a blow-dry at Mario Krankl’s salon and took the chance to ask him how to achieve the blow-dry feeling at home. Contrary to what you may think, it really is possible to blow-dry your own hair to salon standards at home! It might take a little longer (and involve greater arm strength), but with a few tips and tricks plus the right products you’ll be getting that shiny, bouncy blow-out without even leaving the house.

The perfect DIY at home blow-dry for straight hair with Goldwell:

Get the right tools:
  • The right dryer:
    Look for at least 1,800 watts and multiple heat and air settings. Medium heat is best for predrying hair. High heat manipulates your hair’s shape, and cold air sets a style.
  • Nozzle:
    A key feature for the perfect blow-dry: It is essential for a smooth look and keeps hair from getting too close to the heat.
  • Round brush:
    Straighten strands, make ends flip, or create waves with it. Time-saving tip: The bigger the surface area of a brush, the faster the drying time. Brushes with vents also shave off minutes.
  • Hair clip:
    It keeps layers separate and easy to manage.

Choose your weapon aka pick the right products:
  • Shape Spray:
    Kerasilk Style Forming Shape Spray is made for hot tool styles that require flexible hold and weightless movements. It makes sure you can create smooth or curly looks, and it also offers the hair heat protection.
  • Mousse:
    To add thickness, distribute Kerasilk Style Bodifying Volume Mousse through damp strands before using the round brush. Don’t use too much product, as it will only make hair heavy and tear it down.
  • Hair Spray:
    To add lift and set hair, use Kerasilk Style Fixing Effect Hairspray all over after drying.

Now what?

Step 1: Predry and Section
  • After toweling off wet hair, set your dryer on medium heat and high air speed. Blow hair until it’s 85 percent dry.
  • Gather the hair on top of your crown and secure it with a clip. Begin drying the lower layers with a brush, using more heat. Point the dryer’s nozzle downward to help smooth hair and create shine. Depending on which direction you want your hair to flip, either work brush towards your face or away from it.
Step 2: Dry Top Layers
  • Remove the clip and use it to hold the dry lower layers back and away. Twist and clip them into a bun to add waves, or secure like a very loose, low ponytail for a straighter look.
  • Blow-dry the top section. Aim at the roots to add volume, then work toward the ends, using the brush to pull hair forward and out. Make sure to work the brush upwards to add volume.
Step 3: Shape Ends and Finish
  • Remove the clip. Flip all hair back. Part and dry hair around the forehead.
  • To curl ends, roll them under with a round brush, blast with heat, and set with cold air. For a straight finish, pull the brush through while drying ends with warm air; set with cold air. Apply fixing effect hair spray to tamp down baby hair.
  • Editor’s tip: To make sure your blow-dry lasts as long as possible, I like to freshen up my hair with dry shampoo on the next day.

    Wow, so tolle Tipps! Danke dir dafür. Ich lasse meine Haare eigentlich fast immer lufttrocknen, weil ich es irgendwie nie so richtig konnte, aber nach diesem Beitrag werde ich es demnächst bestimmt nochmal versuchen und vielleicht klappt das ja. 😀
    Liebe Grüße und schönen Sonntag,
