For years, I have faithfully applied my styling products according to the back label on the product. Sometimes, my hair turned out fabulous while other times it bumped up with curls in the wrong place and made you want to scream. However, I recently discovered a fantastic little secret that made my hair products perform better than ever before–even the ones that were just “so-so” and still sitting on my vanity. If you’re curious how to apply hair products for the best results, let me fill you in on what I discovered.
Here’s what I now do and really am hoping you should try this tip on how to apply hair products because it can make a huge difference in the look of your styled hair. Instead of applying that hair gel or mousse to the root, you should add your product further down (about two inches). After it is placed, then take your comb and work that gel or mousse through that still damp hair to the ends so it does not settle in one place. By moving the product lower, your hair will not spring up in the wrong spot.
I have tested this new technique on how to apply hair products on quite a few styling products, even ones I haven’t had the heart to pitch. Guess what? Avoiding putting the product on the root and down further along the hair makes a tremendous difference in product usability and gorgeous results.
Honestly, you should experiment with this tip and see if it makes a difference in giving you better hair days too!
What else that I highly recommend reading is how much hair styling products to use per product for each variety. Together with that information and this advice on how to apply hair products, you can’t go wrong!
