We all tend to go to salons for getting our hair treated by professionals. Either we want to straighten our hair or getting it colored, going to a salon is the only choice for us if we want to get it done professionally. No doubt that the professionals at salons are well-trained and can get the best out of your hair but it doesn’t mean that you can’t do it yourself. Going to salons again and again can cost you a lot of money and it’s not really possible to visit a salon all the time. In different situations, you need to take care of your hair yourself. To help you out in a situation like this, here are some secrets that you can learn to style your hair professionally at home.
Blow Drying Your Hair
A good blowout would take around 15-30 minutes depending on the length of your hair. So, for a good blowout you need to follow these steps:
Firstly, you need to make sure that you take a shower and then lightly dry your hair by using a towel.
The next thing that you need to do is to use a good product depending on the type of your hair. If your hair are dry, use a shine serum or a straightening balm. If your hair are flat and weak, use a thickening spray.
Now, separate your combed hair by using holders.
First set your preferred temperature and then start blow drying from the roots by pulling your hair out while the dryer throws air.
After drying the roots, take a round brush and pull your hair with it while blow drying — throwing the air downwards.
Lastly, throw cool air from the dryer so that your hair retain the style.
Straightening Your Hair
Hair straighteners are very common and are really easy to use for different hair styles, but there are a few steps that you need to follow while straightening your hair:
First of all, you need to use a product. Use straightening balm if your hair are curly or use a styling cream if your hair are dank.
Use a heat-protective spray as a precaution.
After that, dry your hair thoroughly.
Now divide your hair into light sections by using holders or clips in a way that when you use the straightener, you only need use it once through a single section.
Work through sections to sections in this way.
Coloring Your Hair
You can also color your hair at home and save a lot of money by following these steps:
First of all, you need to know that you can only color your hair at home if you want to try some darker or lighter shades of your hair. Otherwise, go to a salon.
While buying a hair color, you need to see the detail of the color on the box — not the picture. So, that you know what kind of color you will get as a result.
After you have bought the color, just test it on a few strands.
If the test results in a color that you wanted, you can apply if to your hair.
Never wash your hair after you color, at least wait a whole day after you apply it.
