Hi everyone and welcome back to my channel.
Last week I was talking about the blow dry, my salon secrets for getting a beautiful blow dry every time and really making the most out of your drier. Today we’re taking that further and I’m going to share with you my absolute favourite products for keeping your hair healthy, feeling full of body and looking just fabulous.
When I’m blow drying my clients’ hair, there are three things I I look for in the products I use.
- One: Heat protection – over dried hair doesn’t just lose its natural shine, it’s more brittle and prone to breaking, and that will just not do.
- Two: Body – even on the finest hair we can still choose between sleek and big bouncy blow dry finishes
- Three: Hold – once we’ve got the perfect look, we want it to be held in place all day but don’t want to lose movement in the hair, no one wants to look like they’ve got helmet head!
So what products do I rate and recommend? Well, these three are my absolute favourites that I use day in and day out. As always – my videos aren’t sponsored and these are really the products I love to use.
First things first – heat protection. For me, The L Oréal Tecni ART constructor spray is just perfect. It’s a thermo active spray that has a medium hold in it. Spray onto the hair while it’s still damp and run it through with your fingers, then you’re all set for the drier. The heat protector in it helps prevent your hair from losing too much of its internal moisture as its dried, so it’s great for those of us who are using heat on the hair every day and with its medium hold your blow dry stays in place for much longer.

Now for body. I love using the 3 More Inches thickening spray. For fine hair, it’s great for adding a bit of extra bounce throughout the hair, it even works well for those with thicker hair to add a bit of volume to the crown. Just spray it into the roots of still damp hair in one inch sections then massage through to get an even coverage. It does have hold in it, but it keeps the hair feeling light so it won’t feel as though it’s got too much product in it.

With healthy, heat protected hair looking just gorgeous with the perfect body, how do we keep the look for as long as possible? I always recommend my clients use the GHD Final Fix spray. It does have a strong hold, but it has a soft touch finish so the hair still has the ability to move and it can be restyled and set back into place throughout the day. Keeping that movement in the hair is essential for a style that feels natural – gone are the days of those solid, fixed blow dries of old!
So there we have it – protection, body and hold – my three recommendations for a beautiful, healthy and long lasting blow dry!
