The glossiest strands come from both within (via a nutrient-rich diet) and without (courtesy of conditioners and shine sprays). Stylists are so particular about a models hair health that they will often send her product care packages a week before the shoot. For what Paves calls million-dollar shine, he suggests models wash their hair the night before and then let it air-dry. Hair is much stronger when its naturally dried; plus, your scalps own oils are better than any product. Generally, all Paves does the day of the shoot is smooth hair with a brush or curling iron. When you dry hair with heat, the cuticles open, causing brittle-looking shadows on the hair shaft that prevent hair from looking shiny and bright, he explains. Instead of hairspray, he uses Kerastase Lait Nutri-Sculpt to hold hair in place. It seals the little flyaways, but your hair wont get stiff.
Instead of doing color or gloss treatments before a shoot, we usually get by with just conditioning, says Mancuso. To return hair to what he calls its virginlike state, he favors Nexxus Emergencee treatment.
