The right styling products are just as important as tools and techniques for creating sleek, straight looks that last. Smoothing creams, lotions, serums, and balms will smooth and protect strands while drying, and keep frizz away all day and night.
Don’t apply serums or oils to the roots or hair can look greasy.
Look for water-based products so hair will appear smooth and airy and not weighed down.
When hair is dry, use a light lightweight finishing product, such Crack Leave-In Hair Cream, to smooth flyaways and enhance shine.

Products designed to softly define waves will also increase manageability and shine.
Use a styling cream or lotion to help waves stay in even the finest strands.
Use volumizing sprays and mousse on wet strands and texture finishing spray on dry strands.
Dry shampoo is a must for next day waves.
Moisturizing styling products will capture curl definition and help curls maintain a spring in their step. Gently work a curl gel or cream evenly through damp hair before drying with a diffuser to accentuate curls, prevent frizz, and increase shine.
Use a curl gel to create more detailed definition and separation, and use a cream to tame frizz and create smooth, soft curls.

Give your roots a boost with hair styling products that lift hair at the scalp with a temporary stabilizing effect to maintain fullness all day and night. With a combination of wet styling goods and dry styling goods, you will keep your volume turned all the way up.
Spritz a wet volumizing spray on damp strands before you blow dry.
When you start blow drying hair, use your fingers and lift them up while directing the dryer nozzle up along the hair shaft. This will add volume from the start.
Avoid hairspray at the roots as they have alcohol and tend to flatten your hair at the roots. Use a volume pumping spray because they are specifically made to not weigh down hair at the scalp.
Once a week, make sure to use a clarifying shampoo or treatment to keep all the products from clogging your hair follicles which weighs hair down overtime and does not allow healthy hair growth. Clean, healthy scalp will give you the best hair volume.
Glossy shine is the top hair desire, no matter your length or style. To create gorgeous shiny strands apply a shine enhancing oil/serum before after styling hair.
Using a flat iron and a professional hair dryer will complement your product routine for the shiniest shine.
If you have oily hair at the roots, only apply shine serum/oil from mid-length of strands down through ends.
Shine serums/oils double as heat protectants which is why it’s best to apply on wet strands and after you are finished heat styling.
