Achieving a beautiful bouncy blowout takes time and effort, especially if you're using styling tools like a blow dryer or straightener. Fortunately, new tools like the Dyson Airwrap have made getting a salon-like blowout much easier.

The $550 Dyson Airwrap took social media by storm, with videos under Dyson Airwrap on TikTok gaining over 4.5 billion views. It seemed like everyone was giving themselves a voluminous supermodel blowout with the Airwrap. If you want to achieve a stunning hairdo but don't want to invest in such an expensive product, there is an alternative that will give you the same beautiful results for less.

The Amika blowout babe thermal brush is a hair styling tool that has gone viral for giving people fabulous blowouts without making any noise. Videos related to the Amika thermal brush have garnered nearly 30 million views on TikTok already, with many beauty influencers raving about the brush and claiming that styling their hair has never been easier or quicker with the viral tool. 

The features of the Amika thermal brush

The Amika thermal brush will give you a boost in volume without the use of a blow dryer or hot air. This lightweight brush features a 1.5” ceramic barrel that heats hair evenly and quickly to reduce damage that other tools like blow dryers and straighteners can cause (via Love Amika). This brush heats up to 365 degrees and works great on all hair types, so whether you have fine, thin, or thick hair, you can achieve a stunning blowout with it. To help limit frizz, the brush features an ionic generator that can be switched on to deliver a smooth, shiny look. According to a PopSugar review of the Blowout Gabe thermal brush, the tool almost completely eliminates the poof and frizz that is so common as a result of blow drying and styling hair with heat. 

TikTok user Emily Billings claims she finished her hair with the Blowout Babe in just five minutes, making this the perfect brush to style your tresses with if you're in a pinch for time.

How to use the Amika thermal brush

To use the Amika thermal brush, first spray your hair with a heat protectant to properly protect your hair from heat. Then, section off your hair into four sections: two for the front and two for the back of your hair. If you have thick hair, you may want to split your hair up into more sections. Then, wrap a small section of your hair around the Blowout Babe thermal brush towards or away from your face. To create a more dynamic and voluminous look, roll both away from and toward your face. If you want extra shine in your hair, turn on the ion generator by sliding the button on and off until it becomes red.

It's important to remember to only use this brush when your hair is completely dry. You can either wait for your hair to air dry or spend a few minutes blow-drying it before using the thermal brush for the best results possible.
