4 products for a better blowout
The less time you spend on a blowout, the better (on many counts). To help speed the process comes Speed Dry Blow Dry Spray from Color Wow, which uses an alcohol-free formula to decrease porosity and keep moisture in the hair. It's especially good for color-treated hair, since too much heat promotes fading, $24; at select Ulta stores or colorwowhair.com.
Frederic Fekkai has a new three-product line called the Blowout Collection; there's a primer to prep hair and prevent breakage, a frizz-taming sealing serum to keep things smooth and sleek, and a refresher mist to extend your blowout by absorbing dirt and oil, $19.99 each; at fekkai.com.
Bumble and bumble's popular Invisible Oil, a blend of six light oils, has some new companion products. There's a sulfate-free shampoo, $30, and conditioner, $33, along with a heat/UV protective primer, $26. And, of course, the oil itself, $38. All are said to increase softness and tame frizz; at select Sephoras and Bloomingdales, and bumbleandbumble.com.
Makers of White Sands Porosity: The Fix describe the product as "airbrush makeup for the hair." The leave-in conditioner is said to make for short- er blowouts, while it detangles, protects from heat styling and enhances shine, $19; at whitesandsproducts.com.
