My Effortless Winter Blowout Edit.

I've been at a bit of a crossroads with my hair lately. I've managed to change my side part to a middle part, gotten layers, had a balayage, and have worn it down more than I used to. 

I've shuffled out some of my old products and have been more cognizant of how many times I wash it now that the winter chill makes my hair so dry and dull. 

My hair is pretty fine with dry ends — not a great combo! But I think I have this lineup down to a tee. With however many products I've tried and that are on the market, it constantly feels like a treasure hunt. These are some of the products I've found to help create a silky and effortless blowout look.  
Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer - I've always grown up with Revlon hair tools and every Christmas my sisters and I were always gifted a flat iron or curling wand, but this year, I hopped on the Tik Tok trend and gave into trying this 2-in-1 hair dryer brush that has been raved about for creating an effortless blowout in minutes. 

And let me tell yuh folks, it works like magic! Probably one of the best things I've purchased last year. There's no fuss with a normal hair dryer and having to hold your arm up with a brush in the other hand. It is truly a game changer. 

Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray - I've always loved Amika as a brand, so I thought I would try this spray to accomplish an even better blowout with the Revlon hair dryer. I've also been keen to using heat protectants more again. It gives the perfect amount of texture and volume without build up. 
Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo - I've been through the dandruff shampoo phase and I could never find a shampoo that was free of parabens and toxic chemicals.

So, I was reluctant to find shampoo for dry and itchy scalp, but I happened to receive a sample of this from Sephora and wanted to give it a proper go. I was very skeptical because it seemed almost like a face mask. 

The texture is infused with charcoal that helps exfoliate and remove dead skin. It also fills your shower with the scent of peppermint and spearmint oils and my head always feels so clean and healthy after!  

Verb Ghost Dry Oil - I recently got onto the Verb train and am glad I did because I found this perfect finishing spray for blowouts. 

It acts as a spray-on conditioner, adds a lot of shine, and de-frizzes which is something my hair always does, even during the winter. I'm not a fan of using hair spray, especially when I'm just working at home or don't mind my style falling a bit throughout the day. This is the perfect final touch for my hair. 
Living Proof Instant De-Frizzer - If you're looking for a product solely for de-frizzing, I would recommend the Living Proof one! 

I used this a lot during the summer, even on my natural hair and without styling it. It leaves your hair silky and smooth and is the perfect touch up during the day when you don't have time to get the flat iron out. 

Living Proof Restore Repair Hair Mask - With all of the blow drying and exfoliating, using a hair mask has been my Sunday savior. No more dry, dull, or split ends! I use it sparingly, but it makes me feel good knowing that I can protect my hair and color for a prolonged amount of time before my next cut.


What do you normally do to maintain your hair during the winter?

  1. I have a version of that hair dryer blush. Even though I definitely don't need volume with my thick hair I've been using it to dry my hair and smooth it out, then I go in with a flat iron. It's made me want to straighten my hair more
