Hair pro shares common mistake you make before styling a bouncy blow dry – and the hairspray hack you need to try | The Sun

A HAIR expert has revealed the common mistake you're probably making before trying to create a bouncy blow dry.

The woman, called Rachel, shared in a video on TikTok that the key is to prep your wet hair ahead of styling.

Captioning the post, the trainee trichologist wrote: "If you ain't prepping, your curls ain't holding!"

Speaking to the camera, Rachel said: "You can put in as much hairspray as you want, but your curls will still not hold if you don't prep your hair properly.

"Prepping your hair means putting the product on your hair before you style."

While spraying her own wet locks, she said: "This could be a setting spray like I'm using. It could be a mousse or a root spray."


I’m a hairdresser, there’s a major myth I need to bust & it changes dyeing hair

I’m a hairdresser & you’ve got to stop using this shampoo to lighten your hair

"Doing this will give your hair a bit of grit, allowing the style to hold more."

Rachel said that her favourite product for this purpose was L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Pli Shaper, which currently costs £15.30 from Look Fantastic.

After styling her hair as "normal", she that it had created "volume" but wasn't "crispy", and that the look would "last way longer" than simply using loads of hairspray.

Her post was popular with viewers who left more than 7,500 'likes' and dozens of messages.
