Hair Styling Products
There is absolutely nothing like that feeling when you first leave the salon. And although it might seem impossible to achieve those soft beachy waves or an elegant updo yourself, you’d be surprised what you can accomplish with the right treatment and hair care products. Keep reading for fresh tips on how to recreate perfect hair days from home.
So Fresh & So Clean
Making sure your hair is clean, healthy and hydrated prior to styling is the priority. This means you want to have your basic haircare regimen dialed in with products like shampoo and conditioners that suit your hair type. If you have thin, fine hair you’ll want to find the perfect balance of volume and moisture. Those with thicker hair might consider a cream conditioner that penetrates deep into the cuticle. If you have an oily or dry scalp, stock your shower with a gentle exfoliating scrub or a moisture-infused mask.
Prepped & Ready
First, you’ll want to towel dry your hair to remove any excess moisture. Use hair tools like a wide-tooth comb or a wet brush to gently detangle your strands. For extra tangly tresses, spritz on a detangler to prevent breakage. For anyone who has ever wondered, “What should I put on my hair before styling?”,the answer is to prep with a hair treatment product like a heat protectant that seals the cuticle and protects your hair from the hot styling products you’ll be using.
Pre-Drying is Key
Pro hairstylists agree that you should always pre-dry your hair before styling, which means using your fingers and a low-to-medium hairdryer setting to dry your hair 65% of the way. When selecting your hairdryer, consider looking for helpful add-ons like ionic technology that boosts volume and ceramic or tourmaline heating elements that are less damaging and lock in moisture.
What products do you need to style your hair? Whether your goal is to achieve a smooth, straight blowout or bouncy curls, you’ll want to stock up on a versatile arsenal of hair styling products. For everyday blow-drying, you’ll want a smoothing boar bristle brush. For tight curls or loose waves, choose a round brush with the appropriate barrel size.
Seal the deal on your perfect coif with professional hair styling products like a finishing cream, shine serum or nourishing argan oil that keeps frizzy hair at bay.
