Newsflash: you’re probably blow drying your hair wrong.
After doing hair in a salon for five years, and blow drying far more heads of hair than I’d like to count, I’ve come up with my tried-and-true method for blow drying hair for maximum volume. It’s not rocket science, people. It’s super easy and you’ll wonder how you ever managed blow drying your hair the old way.
STEP ONE | Cleanse and rebalance your hair with Nexxus® New York Salon Care THERAPPE Rebalancing Shampoo.
STEP TWO | Restore the condition of your hair with either Nexxus® New York Salon Care HUMECTRESS Restoring Conditioner or Nexxus® New York Salon Care HUMECTRESS Replenishing Masque. My hair was in pretty rough shape, so I used the masque. The masque intensely moisturizes to give balance throughout. I like to towel dry my hair before using masques because the hair soaks it up that much better when it’s not already full of water.
STEP THREE | Replenish with either Nexxus® New York Salon Care HUMECTRESS LUXE Lightweight Conditioning Mist or Nexxus® New York Salon Care HUMECTRESS Encapsulate Serum. I used the Encapsulate Serum because, being a blonde, my hair has it’s fair share of damage. This product helps rebuild the broken bonds that coloring and styling do to hair.
STEP FOUR | Work in Nexxus New York Salon Care Comb Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam throughout your hair, making sure to get it close to your roots in the crown of your head. Comb through.
STEP FIVE | This part is KEY. Blow dry for maximum volume using a technique I like to call “over direction“. Whichever way you intend your hair to lay, blow dry in the opposite direction. Make sure that you are blow drying down the shaft of the hair. Blow drying “against the grain” will result in extra frizz.
STEP SIX | Style as desired. I used a curling iron for soft waves. Then, set your style with Nexxus New York Salon Care Maxximum Finishing Mist.
This has been the way I have blow dried my hair for years. Pretty much since I was a newbie stylist. And I’m telling you guys, I can’t believe how SOFT my hair felt after this quick routine.
What I like best about using the Nexxus® New York Salon Care products are the premium, salon-quality ingredients and how touchable my hair felt yet how well the style and volume held up. I’m used to not being able to run my fingers through my hair once it’s styled, but that was not the case this time!
