Get perfect hair by shampooing, conditioning, drying, protecting, styling and setting your hair. A range of tools, techniques and products specially formulated for your hair type can help you achieve the look you want.
- Shampoo hair thoroughly
While you are in the shower, massage shampoo into your scalp. Spend approximately two minutes working shampoo through with your fingertips. Use a gentle, circular motion. Rinse thoroughly.
- Condition hair
Apply a conditioner to your hair, and distribute it with a wide-tooth comb. Make sure to work the conditioner from the mid-shaft to the ends of the hair. Allow the conditioner to penetrate for three to five minutes. Rinse with cool water to seal the hair shaft and reduce frizz.
Wrap a towel around your head for five minutes to absorb excess water. Avoid rubbing hair with a towel as this may promote tangles. Apply a leave-in conditioner, and allow the hair to air-dry until it is approximately 70 percent dry. If you are in a rush, blow-dry lightly for three to five minutes using your fingers to untangle the hair. When the hair is 70 percent dry, comb through it with a wide-tooth comb or brush designed for wet hair.
- Apply protector
Apply a heat-styling protector, and continue blow-drying until hair is 100 percent dry. Switch the blow dryer to the cool setting, and continue blowing air on the hair for three to five minutes.
Begin styling using a flat iron, curling iron or hot rollers to achieve the desired look. Add shine with two drops of a smoothing serum applied from the mid-shaft to the ends. Complete by spraying the hair with a weightless, non-tacky hairspray to hold the style in place.
