How to Extend Your Blowout for 5 Days

One of the best parts of quarantine is the ability to give your hair a little break from washing and styling. But, with that comes the challenge of prolonging your blowout as long as humanly possible. Cristina Rodriquez, an ULTA Beauty Design Team member, has a few tricks up her sleeve for extending the life of your blowout for up to five days. Watch here.

DAY 1: WASH DAY

Wash your hair with Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Triple Detox Shampoo for a good, deep clean. It's a non-stripping, color-safe shampoo that gently removes buildup from the three big causes: product, pollution and hard water.

Before blow-drying, apply Living Proof Color Care Whipped Glaze. This deposits temporary dyes to instantly boost vibrancy, counteract color fading and rebalance tone.

DAY 2: SLIGHT REFRESH

Don't add too many products too soon. Keep it simple and spray Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo for a quick pick-me-up.

DAY 3: GOOD AS NEW

Spray IGK Charcoal Detox at roots for a deep cleanse that absorbs oils and eliminates odors. Then, apply IGK Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Smoothing Spray on the ends. Hit your roots with a quick round brush blow-dry for instant volume.

DAY 4: A NEW STYLE

If your hair is starting to feel limp, reach for IGK Direct Flight Dry Shampoo. It's a medium-cleanse dry shampoo that adds texture and extends style. Then, pull out your curling iron and add a slight wave for a fresh, new style.

DAY 5: TOSS IT UP

With the help of Paul Mitchell Invisiblewear Undone Texture Hairspray, throw your hair up in a cute, textured pony and add an accessory. No one has to know you're on day 5!
