My stylist – Charlie Potje, owner of Charlie Salon – has done it again. He’s turned me on to another can’t-live-without product: Blowpro Ready Set Blow. Developed and tested by Blow, New York’s premier blow dry bar, it actually speeds up drying time while it primes and smooths hair.
The manufacturer says it’s the formula’s exclusive protein blend that is simultaneously nourishing and weightless. Micro-heat conducting polymers optimize your blow dryer’s heat, reducing your hair’s exposure, resulting in less stress and damage, no matter your hair type. The addition of Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) and Triticum Vulgare (wheat protein) leaves hair revitalized. Bonus: all Blowpro products are made without sulfates, parabens or sodium chloride and are compatible with keratin-treated hair.
How to use: rub a small amount (nickel size for fine to medium hair, quarter size for coarse) between your palms to emulsify the products, then rake hands through hair, concentrating on the ends and outer layers. Then, set about your normal routine. For the best results, point the blow dry nozzle down as you dry and be sure to ventilate steamy bathrooms before styling to ward off frizz.
Blowpro has literally cut my morning styling time in half and leaves me with a lasting look that I don’t have to touch up before heading out for the night. Try it once and I guarantee you’ll be hooked just like me. At this point, I’m starting to wonder if Charlie is my stylist or my dealer. For the product junkie in me, it’s a win-win.
