Dominican Blowout – Hair Styling
This popular straightening procedure originates in the Dominican Republic and can be varied to suit your individual hair type.
Blowouts refer to the process of blow-drying the hair with an option to flat iron. The typical procedure involves using a blow-dryer while combing it out with a vent brush, paddle brush, or a round brush. After a blowout you are left with a relaxed, straighter look, but this typically won’t deliver bone straight hair. To get the flat, shiny, moveable hair, you really need to use a flatiron. The straightened results of a blowout are temporary, and the length of time it lasts will depend on your hair texture, the weather where you live, and how you maintain your hair at night. Your hair will revert back to its natural texture the next time it gets wet.
The result of a profesional Dominican Blowout will be a silky smooth, moveable blowout with body, bounce, and shine. This will also last based on the hair type. Porous hair types can wear their Dominican Blowout for up to two weeks while non-porous hair could stretch to four weeks at a time. Maintain your blowout by performing the doobie or wrap, which involves wrapping the hair around the perimeter of your head, every night before retiring for bed.
