    Sleek and Shiny Hair

    Apply a lightweight leave-in conditioner on damp hair before drying. If your hair has medium or thick volume, apply a bit of styling cream to keep strands smooth. Use a flat brush to go underneath your hair and keep the dryer aimed downward. When the section of hair is almost dry, switch to a round brush so that you have some bend at the ends. If it's humid outside, mist your hair with a protective styling spray and run a flat iron from your ears down.
