Want beautiful, healthy hair but not sure where to start? With so many products available it can be difficult to know what products are actually needed and why. Turns out? It’s probably fewer than you think! Plus, by implementing a few tried-and-true haircare routine tips, you can achieve your hair goals and get your healthiest locks yet.

1. Shampoo and Conditioner

Every haircare routine needs a high-quality shampoo and conditioner. We recommend alternating between a protein enhancing line and a moisturizing line to keep hair strong and healthy. Our favorites are the Aveda Damage Remedy and Therapist by Evo.

To ensure a clean scalp and help stimulate hair growth, we recommend trying our rejuvenating scalp massage treatment! Or you can gently massage your hair while you shampoo to mimic the effects.

Once you’re done washing and conditioning your hair, make sure to not wrap your hair in a towel as this can cause breakage. Instead, drape a towel over your shoulders and leave your hair down.

2. Styling Preparation Products

Heat Protectant: If you’re going to be heat styling your hair, its critical you add a heat protectant while your hair is damp. This will protect against damage and keep your hair healthy. We love the Mr. Smith Leave In.

Holding Product: This will help maintain your style and keep it looking amazing! For a light option, we recommend trying the Aveda Styling Foam Phomollient which is applied to damp hair. For stronger hold, we love the Evo Gangsta Grip Bonding Resin, which is also applied to damp hair.

Root Booster: Lastly, we love adding volume with a great root booster! Our favorite is the Evo Root Canal Volumizing Spray. This is also applied onto your damp hair.

3. Blow Drying 

Once your products are applied, you’re ready to blow dry! We recommend lifting your hair at the roots while blow drying for maximum volume. Always be sure to use the nozzle on your dyer to control the air flow and if you suspect your hair dryer is too hot, it probably is! We recommend keeping the heat at ‘warm’ or ‘medium.’

Having a great brush makes all the difference too. We find that the Hank round brush from Evo is super easy to use for our clients!

If you’re still having trouble, we’d love to have you in for a blow dry and styling lesson.

4. Styling

We always recommend our clients section their hair into three sections when styling for the best look possible. We love using a curling iron for all kinds of waves. Our top pick is the Amaxy Infared Iron.
