Spring is here! If you’re like us here at Creative Professional in New York, you can’t wait to get back outside and enjoy some beautiful weather again. And when you do, you want to look your best. With the right tools and a few professional styling tips, you can get your best hair ever this season.
Every woman has a go-to arsenal of hair tools she relies on for her daily styling routine. It’s easy to get in a rut, especially in the winter, and not give much thought to whether or not these hair tools still meet your needs. Springtime is the perfect occasion to take a fresh look at your beauty routine and make sure that it gives you the shiniest, healthiest, most gorgeous hair possible.
Do you have a detangling brush that protects your hair as you smooth it out every morning, or do you dread that telltale sound of snapping and breakage as you sit down to do your hair? A professional-grade detangler, such as our new Signature Classic Petite Mixed Bristle Brush, can quickly detangle your tresses as it gently guards them against damage. It also conditions your hair by distributing natural oils across your scalp in the process. Using a high-quality detangling brush in combination with a detangling complex will give your hair the added nourishment it needs to stay vibrant and healthy.
Detangling is a necessary but delicate daily process. Your hair is at its most vulnerable when it is fully wet, right after you get out of the shower. Make sure that your hair is damp, not soaking, before you start the detangling process. Aggressive towel drying can contribute to the very split ends and breakage you’re trying to avoid, so a light touch is best! Gently patting your hair dry will give you better results.
To get the best blowout, you need a high performance dryer that is up to the task. Look for an ionic dryer that mitigates the heat applied to your hair and protects it from damage. High wattage provides a turbo boost and speeds up the process of drying your hair so that you can have bouncy, fully dried tresses in less time. Our 3500 Tormalionic Hair Dryer is one of the most powerful dryers on the market. It is also exceptionally quiet and comfortable to use, easing the burden on your arms and shoulders.
Make sure never to blow dry hair that is completely wet or has just come straight out of the shower. After allowing it to dry a bit or gently patting it dry and then detangling it, you can begin. Although it can be tempting to put the dryer close to your head because it seems like that will get the job done quicker, that can actually be damaging to your hair and scalp. Remember to keep the dryer a safe distance from your head, at least eight inches away. If you often blow dry your hair, consider using a protective agent such as our leave-in Blow-Out Solution. Its rich botanicals control frizz and fly-aways, adding manageability and shine.
Some of the most attractive styles of the season feature lush curls and waves that are best achieved with a high quality styling iron like the SCW-LS Styling Iron. Victoria’s Secret Beach Waves are especially popular right now. Check out our video tutorial, featuring easy step-by-step professional tips from master stylist Leslie Correa of Capelli d’Oro Salon in New York City, to learn you how you can get this alluring look.
When styling your hair with heat, you also need to protect it from damage. Use a thermal styling spray that keeps your hair from sticking to hot styling tools. Our Pro-Thermal Styling Spray does that and more, adding shine and volume to keep your hair healthy and beautiful. For even more brilliance and luster, check out our Pro-Shine Flat Iron Spray. It works in perfect harmony with our styling iron to boost your hair with a little extra radiance before you step out into the sunshine.
