Professional Products- Shampoo, conditioner and styling products. Products that your stylist uses from the salon.
Tools- If you blow dry your hair after every time you wash it, really think about investing in a good blow dryer. I promise you won't regret it. A good round brush is a must. I have a handful of favorites I use for different styles I'm trying to achieve. Clips that hold your hair and a hot tool to finish and polish your look. Once again, this depends on the style your going for.
Drying- Don't leave your hair up in a towel. As soon as you dry your hair enough so it's not dripping, part your hair the way you want it to lay.
Rough Dry- When you start your rough dry, make sure you are always directing the heat down the hair shaft, to help prevent flyaways.
Section your hair- Put it in small enough sections you can control and round brush out each section.
Polish- Finish your blow dry with a hot tool and a couple of your favorite finishing products.
