Colouring and highlighting hair often require patience and knowledge of chemicals to create the perfect colour. :D Is there a special tecnique or something? Honestly?I’ve been doing this for years, all the ‘correct’ things, and it is quite impossible to get the same swishy effect that the salon does.I don’t exactly know why, but it can result in you buying every damn thing to suss out the ‘secret’, and as a pp already said - perhaps it’s because they can see all around your head, get a better purchase on the dryer handle and basically control it better.I do the parlux/great brush/ nozzle downward/ kerastase/great treatments, etc and it still does not look great.

When I’ve been to the hairdressers they dry it straight but bouncy for me. Someone must know the trick? How do hairdressers get your hair to stay straight? Colouring for multiple shades can be quite complicated and tedious for the hairdresser. It makes my hair gorgeous as long as I don’t leave the house wen there is any moisture in the air. Nothing has yet managed to do a better job. So, I recently got my hair cut into a bob, which I love. They dry it in sections and take the heat all the way down the hair. SDo there you go: now you know how hairdressers get your hair so soft (they use mouse too), and how you can try making your own hair so soft. Even if you just air dry your hair, you still get more smoothness with blowdrying over air drying because the heat helps you manipulate the hairstrand into laying smoother....if you are blowdrying properly that is. The babyliss big hair is ok for a finishing effect - ie, ensuring ends of hair aren’t poker like, but it is useless as a replacement blow dry in and of itself.
