Before you get all fancy-schmancy with your skills, you have to master the basics! Let us teach you how.

Apply Products Like a Pro

Never read the instructions on the back? Don’t worry, we’ll break it down for you.

HEAT PROTECTANT

Rake it through towel-dried hair to create a barrier between your hair and your dryer

DRY SHAMPOO

Spray or sprinkle it on your roots and let it sit for 30 seconds so it has time to absorb the oil. Then, brush it through.

HAIR SPRAY

Hold it at least 6” away when spraying. This way, the water will evaporate before it hits your scalp, so you aren’t adding more moisture.

MOUSSE

Cuba a silver dollar-sized blob between your palms and run your hands through superwet hair.

ROOT BOOSTER

Press the nozzle directly into your scalp and spritz. Repeat all over your head.

WAX

Work a dime-sized amount between your fingers and apply where needed.
