The Best Drying Lotion For My Hair Type

The Best Drying Lotion For My Hair Type

When it comes to achieving that perfect hairstyle, it takes more than great shampoo and conditioner. The blow-dry is the key to success for bouncy, voluminous and shiny hair. Lifting your hair from the roots and adding heat helps to add that much needed boost to otherwise flat locks. A drying lotion can help to speed up drying time and smooth any fly-aways so your blow-dry becomes even more polished.

Choosing which drying lotion is the right product for your hair type however, is absolutely essential in achieving the perfect finished look. If the formula is too heavy for your hair, it will leave it feeling sticky and weighed down. Similarly, if it isn’t moisturising enough, your hair will feel dry. Luckily, we have it all covered at Lookfantastic, and know exactly what drying lotion you should be using to get those tresses under control, and mega glossy.
