Prep your hair for long lasting styles

Updated: Mar 25

I hear all to often "My hair doesn't hold a curl"

More than 50% of our clients say this! It all boils down to how they prepare their hair for a style.

So let me give you my insider secrets

Here's what it looks like with no prep. My client came in for her trial with no product and freshly cleaned hair. I did use styling products like hairspray and texturizing spray... but it can only do so much for thin/fine textured hair. When we brushed out her curls, they immediately fell. (VERY common for this hair texture)

"with prep" she used mousse prior to her appointment. Not nearly enough! You need 5x more than you think. But the curl pattern is much more defined. I BRUSH OUT my curls for a soft looks, also I get to see if the hair is actually going to hold.

We added more mousse and some extensions for her wedding day. We could have created this curl pattern without the extensions but it wouldn't have looked as thick or full. Look how much more volume I was able to create at the top of her head. That's not all extensions, It's product.

Here's how you prep!

  • Shampoo and condition your hair

If you deal with oily hair, let your shampoo sit for at least 60 seconds and shampoo twice! This will help break down your excess oil and keep your hair oil free longer.

  • Use a leave in conditioner/heat protectant.

This will keep your hair hydrated, smooth, healthy and prevent damage from styling.

  • Add a volumizing mousse.

This will give weightless volume, strength and longevity to your style. Plus adds moisture and shine.

Here are my favorite products! Your shampoo and conditioner will be custom to your hair type. If you need help with product suggestions or ordering. Email me or schedule a phone consultation to discuss further.

PS: These aren’t just for styling, I use them every wash day, even if I’m letting my hair air dry.
