Focus on disciplining care
The first step to a style that holds up is washing. It’s important to use conditioning products that will help discipline your hair, making it easier to style. Wash your hair with a gentle, smoothing shampoo, then apply a conditioner to make detangling easier. If your hair is damaged, treat it to a course of Anti-Hurdling Regenerating Serum. The more nourished and healthy your hair is, the better your blowout will be.
Take care of your blow-dry
Whether you opt for a straight or curly blow-dry, the important thing is to equip yourself with the right tools. Namely, a hair dryer with a cold air function (if your hair is very electric, invest in an ionic hair dryer), a natural hair brush to avoid damaging the hair, a wide-tooth comb for detangling and curlers for beautiful curls. Start by detangling your hair and applying Pantene’s Thermal Protective Shine Spray for your hair type (fine or thick hair). It will protect your hair from the heat of blow-drying and give it beautiful highlights. To gain volume, first blow-dry your hair upside down, then proceed strand by strand by wrapping it around the brush and drying it well from the roots to the ends. Stretch the hair as much as possible for a smooth result, or wrap it around curlers and leave it on if you want a curly blow-dry. Finally, finish with a mist of setting spray to give your style a good hold.
The right reflexes
If it keeps you warm, the cap has a nasty habit of making your hair electric. To avoid ruining your blowout, avoid synthetics and wool. If you want to be warm without damaging your hair, think about earmuffs. Another tip: instead of working on a high hairstyle, which will inevitably be messed up for your headpiece, opt for a low hairstyle. Go for a low bun, ponytail, wavy lengths and braids. On the other hand, avoid the half-tail, the dancer’s bun and the banana bun.
