Get rid of the greasies
Use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of styling-product buildup.
Style your hair as usual, but avoid using shine-enhancing products, cautions Richard Calcasola, owner of the Maximus Salon and Spa in Westbury, NY. They can make greasy hair look stringy.
“Try moisturizing shampoo and conditioner — avoid those containing protein, which can be drying,” says Van Council, owner of the Van Michael and New Talent salons in Atlanta.
IF YOUR HAIR IS CURLY
Work antifrizz gel through hair and blow-dry using a diffuser attachment.
IF IT’S STRAIGHT
Apply straightening cream, then divide hair into sections. Using a big round brush to hold tresses taut, blow-dry each section, aiming air down your hair shaft.
