How to Give Your Hair That Salon Look
Nothing beats that feeling when you catch a glimpse of yourself after having your hair professionally done. It’s bouncy, shiny, and simply perfect. Now, if only you could look that good all the time without sitting in the salon.
The good news is you can! Maintaining salon-quality hair on a daily basis may seem like a challenge, but you can definitely do it!
Here are all the tips you need to make sure your hair looks good every day.
- Pre-Treat with a Nourishing Mask/ Deep Conditioner
Before you even attempt a home blow out, make sure you pre-treat your hair with a good quality hair mask or deep conditioner. Exposing your tresses to high heat can leave them feeling parched and looking lifeless. If your hair is already damaged or dry, you’ll struggle to achieve a healthy, shiny finish without a decent hair mask or nourishing deep conditioner.
Apply as much of the mask/conditioner as you need, paying special attention to the ends. Leave it in for about 10 minutes and rinse. Your strands will feel smoother and softer, and it will reduce drying time as much as 50%.

- Use Oil to Tame Frizz and Flyaways
If you have fine, dry, frizzy or flyaway hair, it’s time to reach for a hair oil for both before and after the blow-dry. This will help make your hair more manageable and give it a polished, hydrated look and feel.

- Use the Right Brush
Believe it or not, all brushes are not equal. You need to figure out your hair type and the look you want before picking the perfect brush.
Here’s what you have to work with:
- Small round barrel brushes help create volume for fine and short hair
- Large round barrel brushes work well for creating a smooth blow out
- Wide paddle brushes keep straight, long hair sleek without adding volume
- Pointy-handled dressing brushes help create amazing updos
- Wood bristle brushes help to reduce static for curly hair
- Help Your Blowout Survive
To make sure your gorgeous blow-dry effort lasts the night, twist it loosely into a bun and use a light-hold hair-tie. Pin it up gently and when you wake up, let it down. Just look at that voluminous bounce.
Speaking of bounce, you can add strength and volume to your tresses with Bamboo strength and body shampoo and conditioner. Bamboo extract, rich in silica, adds body and strength to your hair to give you a look that embraces voluminous style.
- Kiss Frizz Goodbye with a Silk Pillowcase
Using a silk pillowcase when you sleep reduces friction, stopping annoying frizz. It also helps keep your blow-dry smooth!
- Work with What You’ve Got
Curly and coarse hair types actually have the easiest time maintaining that salon look. If you have finer hair, the key is to only use a little product at a time. The opposite is true for coarse hair. Look for products that moisturize but don’t leave your mane greasy and weighed down.

- Don’t Skimp on Moisturizer
The skin on your scalp needs just as much moisture as your face does, particularly since it provides a healthy foundation for your hair to grow. The general rule of thumb is to follow every shampoo session with conditioner.
- Stay Loyal
It’s a common myth that switching up haircare brands keeps your tresses healthy because they don’t get the chance to adapt. But this simply isn’t the case. Rather, find what works for you and stick with it. Your hair really doesn’t know the difference. While it’s certainly okay to change things up when you are seeking out the perfect combination to achieve killer strands, once you find that combo, don’t let go!
