Step 2

Apply a volumizing mousse.

Apply a golf ball-sized amount of Nexxus New York Salon Care Styling Mousse Plus throughout your hair. This works to add body and lift to your hair before drying.

Step 3

Blow-dry your hair.

Blow-dry your hair straight. Be sure to position the concentration nozzle downward during the process. This will help the hair cuticle lay flat and help prevent frizz while styling.
