If you want to get as many days as possible out of your blowout, shampoo your hair twice so its super clean before you dry it. Then on days two or three, get friendly with dry shampoo. Nothing beats it for absorbing oil at the roots – and it’ll give you a sexy, pricy kind go texture.
What you do at night is important too. Before you go to bed, wrap your hair into a loose topknot instead of leaving it long. Or, wear a silk scarf or sleep on a silk pillowcase to prevent it from tugging and tangling while you sleep.
If you’re trying to maintain a straight blowout, pull your ponytail to the nape of your neck so that hair stays flat. If you’re going for bouncy volume, do the opposite and pull it high up on your head into a topknot. Avoid elastics, as they will leave a dent. (This might mean embracing the scrunchie!).
