    Whenever I blowdry my hair, it never looks as good as it did when I had it done at the hairdressers. It doesn't hold for as long, and usually ends up massive and frizzy. How can I achieve the "just-walked-out-of-the-salon" look at home?

    my hairdresser puts some sort of conditioning spray on before blowdrying my hair which makes it really smooth. So it could be to do with the products that were used on your hair. You could go and ask them.

    you cant get ur arms to stretch and do the things a hairdresser can do!! wen blow dryin dont jus throw ur head over and blast it...keep brushing it straight down when drying and small sections if you straighten your hair...i use bed head girls toys or shine junkie they help de-friz your hair and give it a shine!!

    do it in layers- use a croc clip to hold back the rest of your hair and do it slowly one section at a time. takes ages but it does tend to come out looking better.

    alternatively- just use some ghds.

    As said above, do it in layers. Use the attachment on the end of the hairdryer that looks a bit like a funnel and point it downwards (ie hold it high and blow down vertically rather than pointing it at your head and blowing it horizontally) This will help with the frizzing.

    Using a bit of serum before you dry it can also help reduce the frizz, but I've found it just takes way too long trying to blowdry my hair straight, so I run my straighteners through after drying.

    I'm not sure that posting this on a thread that is six years old is really your best bet. Maybe try making a new thread.....just a thought!

    in answer to your question though, try using straighteners on it after blow drying it.

    The answer is to have it blow-dried at salons regularly.
