Flyaway hair is a product of frizzy dry hair or static in the hair. To reduce flyaway hair during clothing changes or the humidity in the air, follow these steps to ensure
no flyaways on your picture day!
1. Wash
Wash with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like “Purelogy Hydrate” (good for all hair types)
2. Condition
Condition damp hair with a light spray of leave in conditioner. “Its a 10” is a great one.
3. Before Styling
While styling, use a smoothing product like “Unite Blow and Set” before drying your hair (always dry your hair with the dryer pointing down your hair shaft to not frizz the cuticle)
4. Styling
After you curl or straighten your hair depending on the look, finish by coating the palms of your hands with “Kuene Shaping Fibers”.
5. Finish
Finish with a working hairspray like “Kenra Platinum Working Hairspray 14” so your hair will move in the photos but NOT look like a helmet head
Quick on set tricks – to reduce fly aways on location:
1. Spray a toothbrush with hairspray and lightly push them in.
2. A thin layer of hand lotion on your palms and lightly wipe the flyaway down
