Lorri's question is excellent. How DO you keep your blow-out fabulous on Day 2, Day 3 and beyond? Here's my advice to Lorri:
Here's the deal about blow-outs: Once you sleep on it, your natural hair texture can spring to life. For me, this means my straight hair gets flat and oily. For you, it means your curly hair becomes unruly.
For curly hair, I suggest wetting a brush, shaking out excess water and running the brush through your hair while blow-drying. You can also use a couple spritzes of styling spray to keep it in place. If hair is really coarse and dry, try palming a bit of serum or leave-in conditioner on hair. I recommend Kerastase leave-in conditioner since Kerastase is the Ferrari of conditioner. Product will tame any fly-aways and "unrulies."
Straight, fine hair tends to become oily after a day. Keep second day hair fresh with a sprinkling on the crown of talcum powder or dry shampoo. There are many sprays on the market that fight oily hair (like Ojon's Rub-Out Dry Cleanser, Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder and Jonathan Redo Freshen-Up Mist For Hair & Skin). Beauty experts swear by those products, but I have to admit I own them all and I still reach for my big ole' bottle of Johnson & Johnson baby powder.
