Prepping your hair properly with suitable products is key. Whether you have crazy thick curls or fine flyaway hair, you will want to make sure you have the proper foundation. One of my favorite products to use before blow-drying is Bumble and Bumble’s styling cream. This product is great for all hair types and aids in creating volume, hold, and definition. I recommend that my clients arrive with clean hair prepped with this styling cream.
I also enjoy using Oribe’s “Dry Texturizing Spray” while prepping the hair. This product is designed to absorb all oils in the hair with its patented polymers. This dryer texturizer allows for pliability and hold. I recommend using this product for hairstyles worn down as well.
After curling or straightening the hair for the updo, I like to use a smoothing product to seal the ends for smoothness and shine. I enjoy using “Defrizz” by Bumble and Bumble. It serves as a barrier to the humidity and seals up any sort of frizz or flyaway hairs. Simply apply a drop of this product onto to the palms of your hands, rub together, and apply to the hair, starting at the ends.
Once I have created my desired texture, I like to use Sebastian “Shaper plus” for hold. This gives a very strong hold without having to deal with a sticky texture. I also use this spray once my look is complete. The hair maintains its soft appeal while truly holding in place.
To seal the deal I enjoy using a shine spray to finish my look. It enhances the texture and makes the hair healthy and dimensional. For the perfect amount of shine, I choose Bumble and Bumble’s shine spray. A gentle mist of this product after updo completetion will serve as icing on the cake.
There are so many fantastic products on the market that it makes it overwhelming to decide which products are most suitable to you. I enjoy these particular products because they work with every texture and give long lasting, reliable results. These products are all equally suitable for when you are wearing your hair down with texture. Save yourself some time and try out these products before your next big night out!
