A method of straightening black hair usually performed with a blow dryer featuring a comb attachment. Alternately, you can use a blow dryer with a focused nozzle and a paddle brush or a round-bristled brush. This method was traditionally used on natural hair
to create a perfectly round Afro and to make the hair appear longer. Blowout "kits" are sold in beauty supply stores, but these are usually just another name for texturizers
Alternate Spellings: blow out
To get my natural hair into a round Afro, I use the blowout method with a handheld blow dryer and my comb attachment.
