Step 1: Prep
Curly, wavy or straight—no matter what type of hair you have, always remove excess moisture before styling.
- Blot freshly washed strands with a towel (rubbing causes frizz); detangle with a wide-tooth comb.
- Add a styling product made for your hair type: volumizing mousse for fine hair; straightening cream for coarse or curly hair.
- Rough-dry to remove excess moisture. Set dryer to medium heat and medium to high speed, then use fingers to lift sections
by the roots as you dry.
