Start by shampooing your hair with a cleansing product that suits your hair texture and color needs.  I used KMS “Color Vitality” Shampoo and Conditioner for Blondes, to maintain the vibrancy and tonality of my blonde.

After shampooing your hair, it’s always a good idea to apply a leave-in conditioner to the ends.  This keeps the hair hydrated and helps with detangling.  To strengthen the hair and reduce split end damage; start by spraying using KMS “Moist Repair – Anti Breakage” Spray.

Next, to prepare the hair for long lasting style, you’ll want to apply a styling product to give the hair a bit of grip. Dispense an egg size amount of KMS “Add Volume – Style Foam” into your palm and emulsify into the hands.  Apply product thoroughly into the hair from root to ends for added volume that lasts for up to 72 hours.

Attached the airflow nozzle to the end of your blow dryer and gently dry the hair until it’s 80% dry.  It’s important to use the blow dryer nozzle, as it helps to control the airflow, which prevents frizz and causes less damage to the cuticle.

Use a hair clips to section the hair (nape, back, front and crow) then blowdry each sub section with a round brush.  You’ll want to gently smooth out the hair with a slightly beveled end.  Start from the lower back of the head and work your way to the front

When you get to the front and sides of the head, place the brush behind each section and blow dry the hair away from the face to create a soft sweeping finish.  I’ve gone with a center part, however this technique works beautifully for a long side swept fringe.

For the last section, wrap the hair around the brush and over-direct the hair straight up and forward to create volume and fullness at the crown area.

Finish the style with a light mist of KMS “Hair Stay – Working Spray” for a touchable, movable finish.

Book a one-on-one blow dry session with one of our stylist to perfect your daily blow dry technique.  It’s super helpful and a great way to experience the KMS Haircare product!
