How to Combine Hair Products to Get Hairstyle You Want

You’ve got: Curly hair
You want: Straight hair

Styling recipe: When hair is damp, mix a straightening balm in your hands and apply up the hair shaft until almost to the roots (again, steer clear of those roots!) Comb through to evenly distribute, then blow dry hair using a large, round brush. Flat iron for a super straight finish.

Try:Redken Straight, Hair Straightening Balm

You’ve got: Tightly curled hair
You want: Defined curls

Styling recipe: For added definition and hold, mix a leave-in conditioner or a pomade with a styling gel in the palm of your hand. Finger through damp hair section by section, avoiding the roots.

Note: No matter what style you create, steer clear from using hair dryers that are too hot because these will fry hair and damage hair’s natural texture. Check the number of watts before using a hair dryer and make sure it’s not above 1,600 watts.

    I do that too Kirsty814—or sometimes just put a little conditioner in with the shampoo if I’m in a rush. For some reason, this seems to work better than using those 2-in-1 formula shampoo/conditioners, which weigh my hair down something fierce.
