Product is not an option, it is a necessity!
We have repeated this over and over and youre getting it now, right? With so many products out there, it's the misapplication of a product that prevents you from replicating the style that you get when you leave the salon. How many of you knew that there is a actually a right and wrong way to apply product? I know, it seems extreme, but if you learn to apply product as intended, you will have a greater chance of replicating the style that your hairdressers created for you.
So lets talk the right product(s) for your hair type & desired look along with how to properly apply those prodcuts for best results.
To begin, determine the results you want from the product. The most common mistake is applying the product all over the hair and not in a specific area.
The palm of your hand actually becomes a reservoir for your product; using only your finger tips to apply the product to your hair will prevent over-application of product. Now that weve covered the basics, we have some tips and tricks for applying our favorite products, check this out.
Remember, Reservoir, Emulsify then Apply!
HOT TIP: Take a simple powder brush, apply oil to the brush from the palm of your hand, or your reservoir as we call it, and lightly brush the fly aways at the base of your hair. This will apply a small amount of oil to your hair, just enough to get those fly aways to lay down. Try this!!
Medium to Coarse Hair: Pick up a boar bristle round brush, we recommed the Sam Villa Medium Oval Brush, and apply a small amount of Redken Diamond Oil shatterproof shine to the palm of your hand, distribute the oil on the bristles of the brush, using just your finger tips, then round brush like you normally would. This will control extra frizz and give a shiny and smooth stretch to the hair.
Product is the foundation to a successful hair day but you have got to master to application to get results. Start small, you can always apply more product if needed, but over-application can make the styling more challenging. So dont give up on those stylist recommended products, get them out and apply the correct way and watch the magic happen.
