Volume, bounce and longevity. Top tips to achieving a salon quality blow-dry at home.
Begin with salon quality shampoo & conditioner
We recommend NAK Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. Shampoo hair thoroughly twice, then condition ends only. For damaged hair we recommend using a mask prior to blow-dry for the silkiest locks.
Use a thermal hydrating mist
Use a weightless detangling mist designed to hydrate and protect the hair from structural wear and tear. A good hydrating mist will assist to restore moisture balance, improves strength, elasticity and styling manageability. We love the NAK Hydrating Mist which Enriched with our Vegan Complex of Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Hydrolysed Rice Protein and Pear Extract... yum.
Boost volume at roots
When it comes to body it's nice to know you can amplify your styling options with NAK High Volume Texture Spray. Create styling fullness, high volume and root lift, layer in bounce: body and texture for a beautiful styling result and the best blow-dry finish. Apply to roots and blow-dry hair upside down. Allow hair to cool before flicking back over for unbeatable volume.
Twist ends of hair around a brush
Using a thermal ceramic or thermal round brush, smooth the ends of your hair around a brush, wind up gently and allow to cool for minimum 10-20 seconds before twisting the brush in a circular motion out of the hair.
Use a tong
If you can't get the twist action happening, use a hot tong in the same fashion mentioned above. For long hair use a large round barrel tong and for short hair a small round barrel tong will do the trick nicely.
Use dry shampoo instead of hairspray to finish
Finishing the hair with a dry shampoo instead of hairspray will add grip and volume, and also extend your blow-dry out a few days. Dry shampoo is best used in clean hair before the hair gets dirty to prevent excess oils. Your hair will look amazing second day. Tip: If you 'over do' the dry shampoo or wake up with a flat patch blow-dry the section of hair which needs attention to revive your blow-dry or blow out excess dry shampoo dust.
Get your beauty sleep on a silk pillow case
Avoiding the friction and heat generated by a regular pillow slip will prevent unwanted frizz and flattening of the your hair. You will wake up looking like sleeping beauty with shiny voluminous hair.
