An important step that is most overlooked is keeping your hair in good condition so that you can style it many ways. The only time your hair stretches is when it’s wet. Taking the time to towel dry and minimize the damage is very important. Of course you can damage your hair with heat, but it is less likely to happen if you follow these steps:
Towel drying is step 1 in great hair and styling. Don’t brush your hair when wet, instead, use a large comb and a leave-in conditioner. Even if your hair is fine you need to keep moisture in your hair while drying.
Towel drying is not walking around with a towel on your head; it is taking the time to scrunch your hair in a towel and removing the moisture so that it is easy to style and takes less time.
Monkey drying technique is when you reach your left hand over your head to the right side and shake it like a monkey allowing the air to move through your hair and repeat on other side. The straighter you want it to be, the harder you shake making the hair whip when it’s wet (“the only time it stretches”), leaving the hair straighter.
After your hair is dry, styling can be one of many choices: flat iron smooth and straight, flat iron curl for that beach wave, or even go back to setting it with rollers to give a more glam look for the night out. Good luck on getting started with getting your hair in shape.
Lastly, when you go to the beach, bring back salt water to mist your hair; it enhances the salt bond in your hair giving it unbelievable body.
If you’re spending the day in the sun, try using your treatment at this time for deep conditioning with the sun's heat.
