You may be able to get a beautiful salon style look without having to go to the salon and spend money! No matter what type of hair you have, there are ways to get the look you want at home! Here’s how!
If you have frizzy hair, it’s important to not over-style or create flyaways. First shampoo and condition with hydrating, replenishing, or nourishing formulas. Comb the conditioner through your hair and let it sit for at least three minutes. After you rinse it out, work in some leave-in conditioner. If your hair is fine-to-medium texture, use a foam leave-in conditioner. While your hair is still wet, put a small amount of gel in your hair with both hands working together. Section off two-inch pieces of hair and roll them in a small-to-medium round brush while blowing your hair dry. Once your locks are dry, curl your hair to create soft spirals around your face. Some conditioning cream applied to your fingertips will help keep the curls from separating and make your ends appear smooth. Change up the curls for a more natural look. Curl some sections under and some pieces back.
If your hair is limp and lacks pizazz, you may be using too many styling products. Start fresh by changing to a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Rinse completely to ensure that all heavy residue has been washed clean. Add a dab of volumizing mousee to your damp hair. For volume, tip your head upside down to blow-dry and use a large vented brush. Once your hair is almost dry, flip your head back over and part your hair on the opposite side from where you usually wear it. Keep drying with the vented brush. Now, flip your part back to where you normally wear it and roll up the top sections of your hair and the area around your crown in velcro rollers. You can also use a round brush as you blast your hair with heat from the hair dryer. Make some texture and control flyaways with a wax or finishing cream by rubbing a small amount on your fingers and run through the front pieces of your hair. Keep sections of your hair taut as you roll them in curlers. When finished, shake the back of your hair and pull front pieces into place for a sexy look!
Tired of spending eons straightening your hair? Here’s how to cut down on the time it takes to make your hair smooth. For every bottle of shampoo you buy, buy two bottles of conditioner. Straightening your hair can dry it very quickly, so you’ll need more conditioner than shampoo. While your hair is still wet, use a small amount of straightening balm with some smoothing serum and run it over your hair. Start out about halfway down your hair and go to the ends. Then work on your roots. Blow-dry your hair until it’s almost dry without any brushes. Use a paddle brush starting in the back to smooth small sections as you finish drying. After your hair is completely dry, boost shine and keep split ends at bay with more serum. Focus on the ends with just a drop or two. To get your hair as straight as a board, use a flattening iron. Keep the iron moving to minimize damage and keep the heat setting low.
