#FIVE TIPS ON WHAT PRODUCTS TO APPLY TO YOUR HAIR…

1. Start with freshly cleansed, out-of-the-shower hair that’s been towel-dried.
2. Apply blow-dry cream or straightening cream. For short to medium length hair, apply a quarter sized amount and for longer hair double the dose, then comb through with your hands, starting from the back of the head to the front, ensuring all strands get coated. 

3.If you want volume then add a marshmallow-sized amount of mousse into your hand and rub between your hands to liquefy, massaging into your roots and down using your fingertips. 

4. If you use a salt or sugar spray to add texture then wait until your hair is dry before applying it. For added shine you can apply a tiny amount of dry oil to the ends.

5. Finally finish with gel or pomade to tame flyaways and hairspray to set the look.
