TREND ALERT: HERE'S 5 TIPS TO CREATE *THAT* COVETABLE 90'S BLOW OUT
The big, bouncy 90's blowout is back baby. Heres how to recreate the nostalgic look. The mission? Gravity-defying, voluminous curls.
How to Prep Your Hair
Before picking up any hot tools, it’s essential to set the proper foundation for your blowout.
Wash your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner to make sure you’ve got volume before you even begin. Apply Cosmocap Daily Hair Serum through your mid-length to ends to protect the hair and ensure a smooth finish while your hair is still damp and top your roots off with a soft mousse.
STYLE #1: Keep It Classic
Tools: A Hair Dryer + A Barrel Brush
A blow dryer and a barrel brush like our HI-Volume Hair Brush are a perfect match to achieve a bouncy blow dry. Warm your strands up with your blow dryer until it’s 80% dry. Then, section off your hair into two or three inch sections and place your barrel brush to the roots of your strands. Direct the heat from your dryer at the barrel and move the brush through your hair, directing heat at the barrel as you go. Pin each section with a clip after it’s blowdried & keep the hair pinned until it’s completely cooled (try blasting with cold hair to speed up the process in a crunch). After realizing each section, spray with a strong hold hairspray from roots to ends.
STYLE #2: We See You Rollin'
For all hair types, start by applying Cosmocap Daily Hair Serum while hair is damp to protect your hair and achieve a smooth, silky result. Straight and fine hair types should maximize roots with volumizing creams as well, wavy hair types with styling spray & curly and coily hair types should apply another application of frizz-fighting Cosmocap. Take a straightener or curler to the hair before wrapping and pinning in the roller to ensure the strands are pre-heated, then wrap your hair around the rollers. Let your hair cool down before letting go of each curl. If you have heated rollers, you can essentially roll the hair in place and pin it until thoroughly cooled.
STYLE #3: Straight to the Point
If you prefer sleek, bouncy waves, your straightener is the perfect tool to help achieve a blow dry. Instead of taking the iron down the hair, rotate your straightener in an ‘s’ curl down the hair strands. Mimicking what a round brush does, you’ll create a natural bounce to your hair. For additional fullness and bounce, apply a volumizing product at your roots and combat frizziness by finishing with a small amount of Cosmocap Daily Hair Serum.
Sitting by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa, curled up with a warm woolly blanket is a winter dream. And while you might be feeling those cozy winter vibes, your hair is not! With these 7 tips for healthy cold-weather hair you can protect your hair from becoming fragile and breakage-prone this winter. TIP 1: Hair Oils & Serum Treatments Hair oils & serums are a blessing for stressed winter hair to regenerate and give your strands new freshness and shine. Our Cosmocap Hair Serum can be used daily to reduce frizz and breakage while repairing your tresses. The ends of your hair will benefit from this treatment most of all, since they’re roughed up by coats, scarves, and sweaters. TIP 2: Wash Your Hair Less Frequent hair washing dries out your strands and strips them of their natural protective oils. To avoid further drying out your winter hair, reduce your washes to 2-3 and bridge the gap with dry shampoo. Bonus: Dry shampoo delivers instant volume for a bigger, bouncer winter do! TIP 3: Don’t Go Outside With Wet Hair Wet hair is prone to breakage. When things freeze, they expand and your hair is no different. The cold is extremely damaging to damp hair so make sure your stands are well and truly dry before stepping out. TIP 4: Banish Flyaway Hair Done with static charge from your cute sweater or scarf? Smooth your flyaways with anti-frizz Cosmocap Daily Hair Serum. The lightweight keratin treatment can be used daily to tame flyaways and keep hair smooth. You can also try spaying your mane with hairspray to keep things in place but ensure you apply the two separately to avoid weighing your hair down. TIP 5: Cut Off Your Ends Winter is tough on the ends of your hair. Friction against warm clothing causes stress and split ends are the unfortunate side effect. Regular trims rejuvenate your hair, give you a fresher look and promote hair growth banishing split ends for healthy and gorgeous hair. TIP 6: Apply A Deep Conditioning Hair Mask Weekly Cold weather and dry heating causes havoc on your hair’s moisture retention. Introducing a once-a-week mask treatment to your weekly hair routine will keep your hair hydrated in the colder months. Try antioxidant-rich Green Coco Hair Mask to reduce frizz, boost shine and restore essential moisture and hydration to dry, brittle hair while strengthening your strands with every use. TIP 7: Blow Dry Gently The cold air isn’t doing your hair favors but neither is dry heat! The heat from your hair dryer causes your vulnerable dry winter stands to dry out even further. The solution? Apply a heat protection product and blow dry using the diffuser on a low heat setting to avoid too much moisture being lost in the dry. Pro Tip: Apply ½ of a Cosmocap capsule to damp hair before blow drying to hydrate and protect your locks and finish with the remaining capsule to infuse your strands with vitamin B5, keratin amino acids & silk protein to strengthen, hydrate and repair.
