I’ve tried most of them, and while some work to an extent, I’ve never been able to fully achieve the straight, sleek look I so desperately desired.
But this week, a hair stylist taught me how she gets rid of frizzy flyaways on her clients and it makes SO MUCH SENSE.
On Wednesday night, I attended a launch event for ghd’s latest product, the world’s first SMART hair straightener.
It’s fantastic and did what normally takes me 20 minutes in under three, but that’s not really the point of this article. What the hair stylist who demoed the product on me did after she’d finished straightening my hair blew my mind.
As ghd artist and award-winning owner of Brisbane salon Rokstar Brodie-Lee Stibbons finished polishing my three-day-old hair, she told me she’d sort out my flyaways. So thoughtful.
That’s when she did a curious thing with the can of hairspray.
After spraying a generous amount of hairspray on my roots, Brodie-Lee then ran the edge of the hairspray can over the top, flattening the tiny, sticky-up hairs I’m very familiar with.
I’d never seen it done like that before.
Honestly, my at-home strategy for getting the annoying pointy bits of hair to stay down involved dousing my roots in hairspray and desperately flattening them with my hands.
