Tips For Better Home Styling
Your stylist creates your hair of dreams and now it is up to you to recreate the look at home. It is important to remember that great hair every day is 60% what your stylist does with your cut and treatments and 40% what you do at home. A good stylist will give you product
recommendations and style tips, during your appointment ask lots of questions and maybe even have a go at styling. This will give your stylist even more opportunity to help you with your home maintenance.
Here are some of my suggestions for better home styling:
Air flow of your hairdryer is super important, you want to be pointing the air from root to tip in order to smooth the cuticle. This will create more shine. The Sutra Infra Red dryer will help you direct the heat from the nozzle as well as controlling frizz.
Use heat protectants before styling, this will protect your hair from damage caused from blow drying and heat styling tools.
Choose a brush that will make styling easy whilst creating minimum friction and pull. Check your brush for broken or damaged bristles, you don’t want to damage your tresses with an old brush.
If your goal in styling is to change texture (for example - straight to curly or curly to straight) a styling product can make all the difference to your finished result. Look for products like Curl Partner or Smooth and Straightening Balm, depending on your hair goal. These products will make styling much easier and last longer.
For a perfect blow dry make sure your hair is completely dry - imagine some of your laundry is still damp when you fold it making your dry laundry damp again! Your hairdryer, brush and styling products can all help speed the hair drying time.
Finish your look with a hairspray to hold your style or a shine spray to add an extra sparkle dimension to your look.
