Check out these wonderful AVEDA prep products and professional tips below. Which one is right for YOUR hair?
Benefits: Smoothes, tames, and reduces frizz.
To Use: Apply a nickel-sized amount to damp hair for faster and easier styling.
– Always begin with freshly-washed hair. This is especially important if you want your sleek/smooth blow-out to last for several days.
– Always blot wet hair with a towel to remove excess moisture. Don’t rub—rubbing creates frizz.
– When hair is 100% dry, use cool air to set. This closes the cuticle and ensures your smooth blow-dry will last longer.
– For thick/coarse hair, apply product before bed. This helps maximize smoothness and helps prevent excess volume in the morning.
