If you want to achieve the salon style blow-dry at home, all it takes is a little insider knowledge the right tools and a bit of practice. Here's our top 4 tips on how to get a bouncy shiny blow-dry and save a few pounds by going DIY. Tip 1. Use a moisturising pre-treatment Preparing your hair so that it is in great condition prior to blow-drying can help deal with the exposure to high heat that comes with a blow-dry. If you hair is already dry or damaged then it will be impossible to get the professional looking shiny bouncy finish that you get from a salon so it's important to prepare your hair well first. Start by washing your hair with Ritual from Neal & Wolf, a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner range designed to cleanse the hair, leaving it fresh, full of shine and ready for styling. Tip 2. Heat protection When you visit the salon you will probably notice that they often use a heat protection spray before blow-drying. Make sure you do it at home too, with a product like Neal & Wolf GUARD, a heat protection spray with a Silk protein complex that locks in moisture, protecting against heat up to 220∞c. Tip 3. Manage frizz and flyaways Using a hair oil both before and after your blow-dry will make your hair more manageable and give it a sumptuous glossy shine. Neal & Wolf Silk puts an end to tangles and frizz. Hydrating wheat protein complex provides moisture, balance and manageability. The result is sleek, straight and silky-smooth hair. Tip 4. Use light styling products If you want your DIY blow-dry to keep it's professional salon look for the entire evening, ensure you use light hair styling products and nothing heavy that will weigh it down.
