Amika 3D Volume & Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner
Salon blowouts are all about getting sky-high volume and when trying to accomplish it from home, it all starts in the shower. Amika’s 3D Volume & Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner truly works wonders because the result is beautifully cleansed hair that’s plump from root to tip.

DevaCurl DEVATOWEL™ Anti-Frizz Microfiber Towel
Did you know that your regular old terrycloth towel actually promotes frizz? Well now you do and that means it’s time to use a microfiber towel that absorbs just the right amount of water. Allowing your hair to dry to a damp stage before you start blowdrying is key if you want to lessen the amount of heat applied to your hair which then lessens potential damage.
Drybar Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist
Speaking of reducing heat damage, a heat protectant spray is key when styling your hair. This spray from Drybar not only protects your locks but also helps tame any frizz and adds shine. Unlike other heat protectant sprays, this one dries on contact so it’s weightless and there’s no sizzle or weird crunchy effect. In addition to all of that, it smells amazing, like a tropical holiday!
Paul Mitchell Pro Tools Sectioning Clips Set
Now I know some folks are able to do their hair without sectioning it at all but I am not one of those people. If you are then continue on but if you’re a section-er, then grab yourself some clips that will actually hold your hair back. I find that sectioning the hair allows you to spray your heat protectant evenly, avoiding any product build-up, and it also ensures you don’t overwork the hair when blowdrying.
Amika Hair Blow Dryer Brush
Perhaps the most important part of the blowout is the blow dryer. If you’re not skilled in the round brush department, then this amika Hair Blow Dryer Brush needs to be on your radar. It works effortlessly to smooth out any frizz and the volume it gives is beyond my wildest dreams. The result is a voluminous blowout that’s long lasting and bouncy!
