3 Easy Lockdown Hair Hints That Work For Absolutely Everyone

“It’s about having the right products to control them., we always see flyaways on the runway,” says Loraal London, a hairstylist who has worked with Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.

Here are three easy ways to get smooth, sleek hair at home.

1. Get a good brush

If you don’t have one already, invest in a paddle brush or wide-tooth comb. “Start from the bottom and work your way up, detangling each section as you go along,” says Loraal London of brushing wet hair. If your hair is particularly fine or prone to tangles, try using conditioner before you start – just make sure it’s fully rinsed out so it doesn’t weigh down your locks. For an extra-smoothing boost while blow-drying (more on that later), use a boar-bristle brush; these help distribute natural oils from your scalp throughout your strands for added shine and protection from heat damage.

2. Find the right shampoo and conditioner combination for you

The first step to any good haircare routine is finding formulas that work for your specific needs – whether that means addressing dryness, oiliness or frizziness (or all three). If you haven’t already zeroed in on yours, take this quick quiz from Matrix stylist Sarah Conner to get started: https://www.totalbeauty.com/content/quizzes/q-shampoo-conditioner. Once you know what type of products will work best for your strands’ needs, stock up accordingly – and be sure to use them every time you wash (which should be no more than every other day if possible).

3. Use heat protectant when styling

No matter what kind of style you’re going for – straight or curly – protecting your strands with a heat protectant spray is always a good idea before reaching for hot tools like curling irons or flat irons (and even blow dryers). Not only does this help prevent damage caused by high temperatures , but it also helps lock in moisture so strands look healthier overall . Just spritz evenly over damp hair before styling as usual; we like Bumble and bumble’s BB Straight Blow Dry , which also contains smoothing ingredients like polyquaternium 11 to help tame frizz .
