Your bathroom is overflowing with a rainbow of hair products, each promising the divine hair you've always dreamed of. Gels, pomades, mousse, sprays, blowdryers, flat irons, hair bands, clips, brushes, and on and on and on...will it ever stop? Stop all this confusion and cut through the clutter!
A great haircut is key in order to maximize the look you want; however, in addition, I invite you to swipe your bathroom counter clear except for a few must-have essentials:
|YOU'VE GOT||YOU WANT||YOU NEED|
|Thin, fine hair||Thick, full hair||Volumizing mousse|
|Straight or wavy hair||Curly hair||Soft curlers, hair spray and volumizing mousse|
|Dry, damaged hair||Rich, healthy hair||Moisturizing shamp- oo, silicone spray, deep conditioner, spray sheen (oil/silicone)|
|Curly hair||Straight hair||Straightening balm, blowdryer, flat iron|
|Kinky, curly hair||Defined curls||Leave-in conditioner and styling gel|
Thin to thick: While your hair is still damp, mix the volumizing mousse in your hands, flip your head upside down, and rub throughout your hair beginning with the roots, coming out to the ends. To evenly distribute the mousse, comb your hair with a wide tooth comb.
Straight to curly: While slightly damp, set your hair into small sections using Mark Garrison's comfy curlers, "Candy Wrappers." The smaller the sections, the more volume. Once your hair is dry, use hair spray on each curl and at the roots for added lift.
Dry to healthy: After shampooing hair with a moisturizing shampoo, use a deep conditioner for added moisture. Keep on hair for 3-5 minutes before rinsing. Apply a spray sheen evenly on dry hair, staying away from the roots (in order to avoid build-up on the scalp). Severely dry hair responds better to gel sheen.
Curly to straight: When hair is damp, mix a straightening balm in your hands and apply up the hair shaft until almost to the roots (again, steer clear of those roots!) Comb through to evenly distribute, then blow-dry hair using a large, round brush. Flat iron for a super-straight finish.
Defined curls: For added definition and hold, mix a leave-in conditioner or a pomade with a styling gel in the palm of your hand. Finger through damp hair section by section, avoiding the roots. Let hair air-dry.
