Whether your hair is in great shape and healthy, or needs a little extra conditioning love, a blow-dry serum and/or heat protector is a great daily-use product to add into your routine. Sometimes you can get the benefits of heat protection along with a speedier blow dry, like in this product, which is probably the best option for most people!
Apply a blow dry serum or heat protector to your hair before any other products. The goal would be for it to sink in the deepest to the hair shaft so it can do the most work for the strength and conditioning of your hair! If you put on a thick smoothing cream first, then try to apply the heat protector, the other product may get in the way of the thinner, lighter product!
My routine when I wash my hair is as follows:
One. Brush through hair from root to tip before getting wet.
Two. Wash, condition, and while the conditioner is in my hair I will rake through it with my fingers.
Three. Squeeze out extra water when finished, and do not RUB with the towel.
Four. Wrap it up in a turban, like this!
Five. Let it down and rake through it with my fingers. I don’t brush or comb wet hair, but if I need to use something it would be a wide-tooth comb like this!
Six. Apply products, starting with this heat protection serum first!
If I’m using other products, and I usually am, I’ll apply those next and then continue by blowing my hair dry. If you are in need of some blow-dry assistance, check this video!
