Tips to maximize your hair at home

Product Tips
› Wash hair with the appropriate Cerafill Defy or Retaliate system.
› Use Cerafill Maximize Dense FX hair diameter-thickening treatment every day to create an instant thickening effect.
› To avoid diluting styling products, apply to towel-dried hair or 80% dry hair.
› Make sure to mist a heat protective spray – iron shape 11 thermal protecting spray or hot sets 22 thermal setting mist – on hair before using heat tools.
› To add texture and fullness on dry hair, shake well then mist Texture Effect hair and scalp refresher throughout hair and brush through.
› Use Dense FX and Texture Effect together for added fullness and density.
 
Styling Tips
› Use a round brush while blow-drying hair, pulling hair up and away from scalp.
› Blast dry hair focusing on the airflow at the root area, then style with a medium round brush.
› Diffusers are a great way to create soft volume when drying wavy or curly hair. Use a gentle, circulating airflow.
› To enhance fullness on top, make a deep side part or create a zigzag part to disguise thinness.
› For added support use Velcro rollers, let cool for 15-20 minutes. Velcro rollers are gentle on the hair.
› For a modern finish, use a mini-crimping iron to create a corrugated effect that adds support at the base of the scalp.
