The search for a perfect blowout never ends. Why is it that my hair looks so amazing when my hairstylist blows it dry, but it’s such a challenge for me to get the same results at home? Kenra Professional Hair Care recently launched some new products at Ulta that make it easy for me to recreate a great salon blowout that lasts all day. Here are the three Kenra Professional styling products that make up the recipe for a perfect blowout:
1. Kenra Platinum Thickening Glaze ($22) Maybe it’s the shape of the bottle, but for some reason I kept thinking this was a spray and tried to mist it onto my hair. It probably took me three times before it finally sunk in that this is a hair SERUM, not a spray! My hair is very long and fine so it needs help with volume without being weighed down. I find that the Thickening Glaze does a great job of giving my hair oomph by making it look fuller with lots of body. It’s also very moisturizing, so my dry ends are much happier when I use this.
2. Kenra Perfect Blowout Crème ($17) I LOVE LOVE LOVE this styling cream! It leaves my hair so soft and full…it truly makes for a salon-worthy blowout. I don’t even need to use my flat iron because this cream smooths the hair shaft without making my fine hair limp with weight. If I did want to use my styling tools this cream would be a bonus, because it gives thermal protection up to 450 degrees. Combined with the Thickening Glaze I know I am in for a great hair day. To keep the look all day long I add in one more ‘perfect blowout’ ingredient, the Fast-Dry Hairspray.
3. Kenra Fast Dry Hairspray ($17) is an impressive hairspray that doesn’t have a ‘hairspray’ scent and doesn’t get all flaky or crunchy. I have a problem with hairspray build up and I can’t stand a spray that makes my hair stiff. At the same time. with my probably too-long layers. my style goes flat after a few hours if I don’t use something with substantial holding power. It’s so difficult to find a happy medium, but Kenra’s Fast Dry Hairspray definitely does the trick. The spray comes out super fine, and this can be used as a prepping spray for styling tools since it gives thermal protection up to 450 degrees. It doesn’t build up or change hair texture, so when I use the Thickening Glaze and the Perfect Blowout Styling Creme on damp hair, then spray my blown dry ‘do with the Fast Dry Hairspray, I end up with incredibly smooth, soft, volumized hair that lasts all day long.
I am very, very impressed with Kenra Professional and definitely want to try more from this line. If you are always on the hunt for a perfect blowout, I think this trio from Kenra will be your answer. You can find Kenra at Ulta Stores and Ulta.com. – Lisa
