How do you maintain your blow out for 5 days? Who hates washing and drying their hair? Me Me Me! You spend $40 or so dollars, you want to make this hair last! So, today I want to share with you how to maintain your blowout for 5 days. That means only having to wash your hair once a week! Yes Please!
I had the pleasure of Blow Dry Bar Houston hosting me for the day. If you are in Houston I highly recommend them for a fabulous blow out and a week of amazing hair.

Day 1 – Blow Out
On the first day you will get a blow out. I highly recommend having your hair shampooed twice. This gets your hair squeaky clean. One of my favorite things about having a blow out is being able to relax, get some work done or just play on my phone for 45 minutes.

Day 2 – Curl With Curling Iron
I touch up my hair with a 1.25″ curling iron. This keeps my hair bouncy. One of my biggest tips is to NOT use dry shampoo or a ton of hairspray. Products will collect oil and weigh your hair down. This is my favorite curling iron. It is less than $35 and I have had the same one for four years. If you have shorter hair I would try the 1″ barrel.
Day 3 – Half Up Top Knot
On day three of maintaining your blow out, spritz a little dry shampoo around your hairline. I use my fingertips and rub it in a little bit to make sure it gets onto my scalp to absorb oil. Then, I pull my hair half up and bobby pin it or tie it into a fun half up top knot. I lightly spray any fly away hairs. Currently, my favorite dry shampoos are Klorane and Living Proof. Sephora is having an online only 3-Pack special on Klorane!
Tip: Before going to bed at night I spray my roots lightly with a dry shampoo. The dry shampoo will absorb extra oils overnight while you sleep.
Day 4 – Pony Tail
By now your hair has a fair amount of dry shampoo in it. I like to use a back comb and tease the front of my hair just a bit. Next, I use these clear elastics to pull my hair into a high pony tail. I love the look of a high bouncy pony tail!
Day 5 – Top Knot
By now your hair is full of product but I can usually pull it into a fun messy top knot for the day. I create a pony tail and then start tucking and looping the ends of my hair into the elastic of the hair tie.
