Step 1: Treat your hair with a mask.

Start by using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask to protect hair against humidity, boost shine and leave locks smooth. Follow by washing hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Keratin Smooth Conditioner to minimize frizz. If you prefer to change the order of operation here, you can also shampoo, mask and rinse.

Step 2: Add shine to hair.

Work TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum through hair, avoiding the roots, to add extra shine and create a polished look.

Step 3: Part and blow-dry.

Create a deep side part and set with a blowdryer. Follow with a flat iron for a sleek look.
