Marie Claire’s tips on the real order that you should apply your hair products ….
You should start with freshly cleansed, out-of-the-shower hair that’s been towel-dried.
Next up: Apply blow-dry cream or straightening cream. “For short to medium length hair, apply a quarter-sized amount—for longer hair, you can double the dose—and comb through with your hands, starting from the back of the head to the front, ensuring all strands get coated.
Next, if you want volume, dispense a marshmallow-sized amount of mousse into your hand and rub between your hands to liquefy, massaging it into your roots and down using your fingertips.
Now its time to blow dry. If using salt or sugar spray to add texture to your hair then wait until its dry before applying it. For added shine, you can apply a tiny amount of dry oil to the ends.
Finally finish with gel or pomade to tame flyaways, and hairspray to set the look.
