4 pro tips for styling with root boost spray

  1. Apply topically to wet hair. Holding the bottle about 12-14 inches from your client’s head, hold up a portion of hair and spray the root boost beneath the raised section. Then work the product into the hair and down to the roots using your fingers.
  2. Always work vertically. As you’re applying the root boost around the head, always lift sections of hair upward and spray underneath. Repeat until you have the coverage necessary to style your client’s look.
  3. Blow dry with high heat and high speed. Again being sure to lift and shake out your client’s hair in upward and outward directions (away from the head), blow dry most of the moisture out of the hair. Use a flat brush with your blow dryer, if you’d like.
  4. For even more lift, section and spray. Once the hair has been dried and styled out preliminarily, you can bump up the volume once again by creating quick sections with your fingers and concentrating the root boost spray on the roots. Then simply round brush, blow dry, and style out your finished look.
