When styling your hair, the finishing touches can make a difference in creating the perfect hairstyle. Using the right product/s is therefore important to ensure that your style will not only hold, but also keep your hair looking beautiful for as long as you need it to. On the flip side, using the wrong product to finish off your hairstyle can have disastrous implications. You can end up with a greasy hair that is weighed down tremendously.
Here is a quick guide to some of the best finishing products you can use on your hair to make that salon look last all day (or at least as close to it as possible!):
Hairspray: This product is a must-have in any woman’s hair styling arsenal. In fact, you should not be without it (that is, if you would like to create a variety of hairstyles and allow them to hold). There are also several hairsprays to choose from in the market, each designed with a specific purpose in mind. Some help to hold your style for several hours, while others are designed to control flyaways or frizz.
Hair Control Mist: This is another essential product to finish off your style, especially when you are dealing with unpredictable weather conditions. As the name suggests, it is designed to control your hair and frizz formation, among other things. It provides your hair with the right amount of moisture to prevent from becoming overly dry. At the same time, it wards off the possibility of humidity penetrating into the strands that can cause it to become frizzy quickly.
Dry Shampoo: Whether you are styling day-old hair or freshly washed hair, dry shampoo can provide the texture you need to style your hair and give it hold. However, it gives your hair texture minus that crunchy and stiff feeling to it.
Sealing Hair Serum: Tired of split ends? Are you sick of seeing small strands of hair getting up? Don’t forget to finish your hairstyle with a coat of hair serum. The serum helps to keep your hair cuticle flat on its surface so it won’t form frizz. At the same time, some hair serums are equipped with a shiny finish so you can get that glossy look to your hair.
Straightening Serum: This type of hair serum is designed with a specific purpose in mind – for keeping your straight hair looking sleek and polished. If you want to create that particular look, you need to go for this product as your finishing touch.
Plumping Powder: If you want to create maximum volume at the roots, this is the go-to product for you. Use your fingers in order to work this product in more effectively.
Moisturising Oil: There are two benefits you can get when using this product to finish your hairstyle: 1) it can infuse moisture into dry hair, and 2) it can be used to smoothen out or get rid of any flyaywas (or prevent them from forming).
Sea Salt Spray: Want to create the perfect beach wave hair? Whip out your favorite sea salt spray to give the texture your hair needs in order to make it look sexy with an undone touch to it.
