There are a few key tricks and tips you can use to keep your hair looking sleek in-between salon visits. Shiny, manageable hair starts with the appropriate Redken shampoo to remove excess oils or product buildup. Use conditioner through the mid-lengths and ends of hair and rinse thoroughly. Gently blot wet hair with a towel to absorb excess moisture. One of the biggest keys to a smooth style is using product. Redken Satinwear is an excellent blow-dry lotion that will protect hair from heat styling while adding shine. Apply a smoothing product from mid shaft to ends, use sparingly in the root area. Section hair into two-inch panels, securing loose hair with a clip and starting at the back/bottom portion of the head. Pull each section tight with a large barrel round brush or a paddle brush and dry thoroughly from root to end. Using a powerful blowdryer with a nozzle attachment can help to keep the flow of air direct and reduce frizz. Work through each section of hair, making sure to pull the hair tight and straight. When the entire head has been dried, finish the style off with a smoothing serum such as Redken Argan-6 or Redken Outshine to tame flyways and add shine. Touch up any unruly areas with a flat iron and enjoy your new salon-worthy blowout!!!
