A great hairstyle starts with a great foundation, so prep is always necessary! Washing your hair might seem like a no-brainer, but there is a right way to wash your hair. Prep with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner
to achieve healthy, silky, and manageable hair. To ensure a frizz-free Valentine's Day, squeeze a dime-sized amount of shampoo onto your palm and lather it between your hands. Apply the lathered up shampoo starting at the crown of your head and then gently distribute to all of your hair, without rubbing it. Be sure you are massaging the shampoo into your hair and scalp with your fingertips and not rubbing it - rubbing your hair can damage your hair cuticles and cause messy frizz. Use the same technique to apply your conditioner, rubbing it in your hands first, and then massaging it into your hair starting from the ends. The hair closest to the scalp gets the benefits from your natural hair oils, leaving the ends to dry out. By focusing your conditioner on your ends, you will notice your hair having more life and shine to it.
Instead of reaching for your coveted blow dryer, try air-drying. No matter the texture of your hair, you can get the hair you want with air-drying-it's all in the products you use in the prep stage. Want volume? Use a voluminous shampoo
