You Will Need
- Water-based spray gel
- Round brush
Spritz a few squirts of water-based spray gel on your hair. This will leave your hair more manageable and softer.
Wrap a section of hair around a round brush and roll it close to the scalp. If you have straight hair, use a paddle brush.
Hold the dryer
Hold the dryer over the section for 10 to 15 seconds depending on the thickness of your hair. The hot air will add volume and dry excess sweat on the scalp.
Preserve the volume
Preserve the volume by keeping your hair wrapped around the brush until it cools. Then unwind the brush rather than pulling the brush through your hair, which could leave it flat.
Add bounce to your hair by holding the brush a few inches from the ends and flicking your wrist as you blow dry.
Look in mirror
Look in the mirror to make any minor adjustments. Put on deodorant and a squirt of perfume. No one will know you just left the gym.
