From frizz to flyaways and just blah, lifeless strands, we have the pro tricks and product essentials that can make all of your annoying styling concerns disappear.
THE SOLUTION: "Try washing with TRESemmé Youth Boost Youthful Fullness Shampoo to help remove any shine stealing buildup on strands (such as products, dirt, etc.)," suggests TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist John D. If your hair is very dull and dry, use a product that helps it reflect more more light such as TRESemmé Youth Boost Youthful Fullness Shine Lotion, says Jeanie Syfu, a TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist.
THE SOLUTION: "Hair needs moisture to be softer," says John D., who recommends combing TRESemmé Renewal Hair & Scalp Conditioning Mask through hair weekly. "Leave it on for three to four minutes to fully penetrate hair before rinsing it out." If your hair is dry and rough, Syfu suggests applying TRESemmé Split Remedy Conditioning Treatment. "Distribute a few pumps of product through your hair, concentrating on ends, to make them smooth and shiny," she says.
THE SOLUTION: Frizz can be caused by too much water in your hair (and why it happens on humid days). Focus on sealing strands while in the shower to keep water out and them smooth. "Control frizz before it happens with TRESemmé Climate Protection Shampoo and Conditioner,"says John D. Before blowdrying, apply TRESemmé Get Sleek Perfect Polish Heat Protection Prep Spray and "always use a boar bristle brush, which gives the perfect tension to seal the cuticle and prevent frizz," Syfu says.
THE SOLUTION: "Use a clean toothbrush to swipe flyways back, then spray hair with TRESemmé Tres Two Extra Hold Hairspray to set strands in place," suggests John D. If you have your hair in a pony or updo, "spray a blush brush instead and sweep it in the direction that your hair is going to maintain the style," says Syfu.
THE SOLUTION: "Constantly pulling your hair back too tight, over processing it with color and chemical treatments can cause the fine hairs all around your face to snap," explains John D. Combat this issue by setting hot tools to the lowest heat setting and always shielding strands from high temperatures with a heat protecting spray like TRESemmé Get Sleek Perfect Polish Heat Protection Prep Spray. "Shampoo and condition with TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo and Conditioner, which helps fortify hair by making it stronger and more resistant to breakage and heat damage in the first place," he says.
THE SOLUTION: "Nothing gets rid of extreme splits like having them cut off," says John D. As long as split ends aren't working their way up your strands and require a cut, reach for TRESemmé Split Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner, "which will help reduce split ends in as little as three uses," he says.
THE SOLUTION: "Blow dry with a round brush to give your style some lift at the root and bounce all over," explains John D. "And to achieve even more volume, prep damp hair by combing through TRESemmé Youth Boost Youthful Fullness Flexi-Bounce Mousse before drying." Syfu's secret: TRESemmé Youth Boost Youthful Fullness Emulsion Spray. "Spray it at your roots then blow dry your hair in all directions, for tons of movement and body," she says.
THE SOLUTION: "Apply TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse to freshly washed hair to set the foundation for any style," says Syfu. Next, "spritz TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray on sections of hair before using a curling iron or hot rollers," explains John D. The trick to amazing waves: "Pin curl each section so that your hair cools down completely, which locks in the shape, then use your hands, not a brush to loosen up the curl," she says.
THE SOLUTION: "Apply TRESemmé Make Waves Shaping Gel Cream to freshly cleaned damp hair," says John D. Then, wrap small sections around your fingers to create a wave shape and then let your hair air dry or use a diffuser, all of which keeps curls more tightly wound together. To give more definition to very curly styles, "apply TRESemmé Flawless Curls Extra Hold Mousse to towel dried hair, then use a diffuser to gently dry it," Syfu says.
THE SOLUTION: "The trick to taking tangles out is to spray a leave in conditioner on damp hair first—like TRESemmé Renewal Hair & Scalp Conditioning Spray—then use a comb to gently pull apart tangles, starting from the ends and working up strands," says John D.
THE SOLUTION: "Wrap the same sized sections around a curling iron starting midway on strands so that the heat is distributed evenly," says John D. "Because if you start a curl at the end of the hair and the rest doesn't get enough heat, it falls flat," he explains. Spray each section with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray first, "for a light moveable hold that leaves hair protected from any excessive heat, too," he adds.
THE SOLUTION: "Excessive breakage could be a factor so hair needs extra TLC with TRESemmé Anti-Breakage Shampoo and Conditioner—because this system helps reduce breakage before it happens," says John D. Skip heat styling every day, says Syfu, who suggests opting for a heat-freestyle like a loose braid or bun and applying TRESemmé Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment to prevent split ends. "When hair looks healthy straight through to ends, it gives the illusion of length," she says.
