How to Make your Hair Hold its Style Longer

1

We all like styling our hair, but the most difficult part actually is to keep the style for a longer period of time. Depending on what shape you want your to be in, you need to do a set of different things.

Straightening

If you have mastered the art of straightening your hair with a blow dryer, you can use a flat paddle brush for easier results. Use a primer/ heat protect product prior to styling your hair for better results and a healthier hair. Still, wait for the hair to be about 70% dry to put the blow dryer to the brush beause you will damage your hair otherwise.
After you straighten it, by blow drying or with a flat iron, use a serum spray to fixate the style and prevent frizz. Wrap your hair with a silk scarf during sleep, so that you hold the straight style for a longer period of time.

Curling

Use a curl cream or a mousse before you style your hair with a curling wand. Freshly cleaned hair is wilder and cannot hold style very well. Heat protecting sprays are also a must-have when using a curling wand or iron. Wait until it feels a little hold when you have wrapped hair around the tool and let it cool for about 10-20 seconds. When you are done with curling your hair, use the low, cool setting of your blow dryer to set the style with a final touch.

Natural Hair

If you want your natural hair to behave properly, it is best to deep condition it a minimum of once a week. Also, apply a serum or an oil to your ends, so that they don’t dry out. If your problem is greasy roots, use a dry shampoo. Healthy hair is the best option for natural hair, so pay attention to it and act according to its specific needs.
