Quick Hair Tip: How to Apply and Layer Hair Products

I touched very briefly in this tutorial about how to best apply hair products to your hair but I wanted to film a more in depth (though still quick!) video demonstrating how to apply certain products for the best results.

The particular products I used in the video can be found below but I want to emphasize that you do not need to use these exact products. The focus is more on the kind of product and the application method more than the product itself!

Alterna Caviar 3-in-1 Restructuring Bond Repair Sealing Serum (serum)

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Great Body Blow Dry Crème (cream)

Alterna Caviar Multiplying Volume Mist (liquid spray)

Aquage Uplifting foam (foam)

I used a vented paddle brush and the T3 Cura Blow Dryer.

The main takeaway is to start with the lightest/thinnest product first that is supposed to be good to the hair. Ideally you don’t want anything in the way of that product doing it’s job, which is why you want to put it on first. Then you’ll finish with the thickest product. If you feel like your hair is weighed down, you may be using too much product! Trial and error is the best way to determine how many products you can use without filling up your hair.

Typically the next step after applying products is blowing the hair dry, and you may want to make sure you aren’t making these mistakes!

I’m curious, how many hair products do you apply before blowdrying? I’m usually applying at least 2, sometimes more depending on what look I’m going for.
