Expert tells you how to have a smooth shinny hair


31 October 2011


With frazzled and frizzy women in mind, Herbal Essences Celebrity Stylist Charles Baker Strahan shares his expert tips and tricks on how to get a smooth, silky and touchably soft blow-out at home in two 'hair-to' videos featuring step-by-step demonstrations.

Herbal Essences continues to help women achieve luscious hair with endless styling possibilities with Charles Baker Strahan's two perfectly beautiful blow-outs, achieved by first setting the styling foundation with hair that's adequately moisturized and primed.

"With more and more women doing their own blow-out at home, it's my job to make sure that you're using the right styling tools," says Baker Strahan. "It's important to see shampoo and conditioner as an essential styling tool as it sets the foundation of your hair for styling. I use Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner that's infused with a built-in smoothing serum to prevent the hair's outer cuticle from becoming rough and help the hair fibers to lie flat and leave hair smooth."

In the first video, learn how to create:

  • Night-to-Day Blow-out: Take curly hair shampooed the night before and create a straight, sleek finish.
  • Wet-to-Wavy Be:

In the second "hair-to" video, discover Charles Baker Strahan's expert blow-out tips and tricks, including:

  • Product application: If hair is dry, lightly mist Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Spray Gel over the hair at a distance to get even product distribution for greater overall control.
  • Section the Hair: Start at the temple and work down to the nape of the neck in an angular section and then work the hair forward. Clip up the remaining hair and as you work your way backwards drop small sections out.
  • Framing the Face: Comb out your hair by over-directing it forward and blow drying down and towards the face. This will highlight the cheek bone and jaw line.
  • Styling Tools: Use the blow dryer's attachable nozzle to channel the air into a precise stream. For healthy-looking, shiny and manageable hair, use a boar bristle brush instead of a synthetic or plastic brush. Use the brush from root to tip following with the channel of the blow-dryer, while keeping even tension and movement throughout.
  • Finish the look: Smooth Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Leave-In Split-End Protector through the ends of your hair for a sleek flawless finish. Lightly spray a makeup brush with hairspray and lightly smooth over your part line to help tame flyaways.
