L’Oréal Conditioner

  • Do not use hot water to wash your hair. It will damage your hair, strip it of natural oils and cause more frizz.
  • Instead of towel-drying your hair, use a soft cotton t-shirt or a soft microfiber towel.
  • Before you blow-dry your hair, let it air dry 90% of the way. This prevents hair damage, decreases frizz and actually gives a better blow out.
  • Always apply leave-in conditioner and heat protectant product to your hair before styling with heat tools.
