PREP TIME

Hair - - Expert Speak -

Does the per­fect hairdo start with a squeaky clean scalp and hair? Yes and no. Day-old hair is ideal for up­dos and state­ment braids, though the right prod­ucts can cre­ate the same im­pact on freshly washed hair. Opt­ing for a big blowout? A clean scalp can do won­ders. For a fish­tail braid or twisted side bun mood, wash your hair a day be­fore. Prep­ping your hair is cru­cial to achiev­ing the hair­style you want, and en­sur­ing it lasts the night. Anushka Kulka­rni, Zonal Man­ager, War­ren Tri­comi Salon, has rec­om­men­da­tions for each hair type, “Give your nat­u­ral curls a pol­ished, frizz-free look with a curl-defin­ing prod­uct like the Mor­ro­canoil Curl Defin­ing Cream, through your hair. For frizzy hair, ap­ply a smooth­ing serum like the Kéras­tase Serum Ther­a­piste to con­trol fly­aways.” For those with fine hair (be­lieve me, no blowout or curl­ing tong’s ef­fect lasts more than an hour), Kulka­rni ad­vises the use of a vo­lu­mis­ing sham­poo and con­di­tioner like Kéras­tase Re­sis­tance Vo­lu­mi­fique Bain Sham­poo and Con­di­tioner, fol­lowed by a dose of L’Oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel Tecni.Art Reno Full Vol­ume Mousse to towel-dried hair prior to blow-dry­ing.
