This Blowout Brush Is a Stylist's Best Friend

How to Achieve the Perfect Blowout with the Platform Blowout Brush

The Platform Blowout brush is an amazing product that does four jobs in one. But just like anything else, if you don’t know how to use it, you will not be able to take advantage of its plasma ionic technology and 360-degree airflow, which will create silky smooth hair that is beautifully styled using only this one tool.

We spoke to professional stylist and FHI Heat Educator Timothy Deleon about why he loves the Platform Blowout Brush and how to use it.

Timothy Deleon’s Top 3 Reasons to love the Platform Blowout Brush: 

  1. The dial is at the bottom and out of the way, which prevents you from accidentally turning it off.
  2. The brush has two different sets of bristles which are great for polishing hair while keeping it from clumping up when passing the brush through the air.
  3. The brush is lightweight and well-designed, which makes this tool fit so comfortably in your hand while you style your hair.

 

The Brush Itself

Technology has created the ultimate tool which can dry, volumize, smooth, and curl, all in one easy-to-use tool. With a powerful professional-grade motor and a 360-degree airflow, the Platform Blowout Brush releases millions of negative ions that dissolve the water particles, thereby drying your hair faster. This brush takes it one step further with its plasma ionic technology, which rids the air of microscopic particles that could pollute the air. Using clean air from this powerful brush will help you to achieve the perfect blowout in less time and with only one tool instead of four.

Wash and condition

The first step in using the Platform Blowout Brush is to prepare your hair. To do this, you need to wash it thoroughly. Experts recommend doing it twice. After lathering, rinsing, and repeating, it is time to condition your hair so that it is in great shape for the Platform Blowout Brush. Apply conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends, leaving the scalp free of conditioner so it does not get weighed down. After washing and conditioning, you will want to make sure your hair is 60% or more dry before you start to style it with the Platform Blowout Brush.

Towel-dry + Use Product

The Platform Blowout Brush works best if you towel-dry your hair first. By doing so, you can cut your styling time in half and set yourself up for a more effortless styling experience. According to Deleon, “You want to towel dry hair very well then apply a mousse/volumizer to your root area. I loveStylus Full Blown Mousse because it has just enough hold but still leaves hair soft and bouncy.” In addition to the mousse, apply Sheer Remedy to your hair, especially the mid-lengths and ends, to ensure the brush will have an easy time gliding through your hair to create your style. Made with silk proteins and amino acids, Sheer Remedy makes your hair shiny and resilient and offers a heat protectant.

Style each section

When it comes to styling your hair, separating it into three sections will make it easier to work with. Take enough hair to cover half of the width of the brush. Start at the nape of your neck with the roots of your hair, and work your way down. Pass the brush 3-4 times through your hair as you create full volume. The brush will dry your hair as it volumizes. When you pass the blowout brush through your hair the last time, make sure to focus on tucking in and smoothing out your ends, so they really shine smoothly. 

Create a fantastic fringe

Saving your bangs for last is the best way to style your hair, and it will be simple to run the brush through your bangs 3 or 4 times. The last time you run it through, roll your hair into the brush, switch the blowout brush to cool, and hit your bangs with cool air for 15 seconds. This blast of cold air will set the style, and it will help your hairstyle to last longer. Unroll your hair carefully from the brush, and make sure to use a hairy spray like this variable hold Stylus hair spray. This will keep your hair where you want it but will not bog you down with heaviness or flakes.

Take it from a professional. The Platform Blowout Brush offers you plasma ionic technology which purifies the air, offering cleaner and static-free hair. Along with that, the professional-grade motor and 360-degree airflow combine to make quick work of drying and styling your hair. Turn to the tool that professionals love to use, and follow their advice.
