Straight from a pro, you guys!

Ever wondered if it were possible to
be great at styling your own hair? We caught with celebrity hairstylist
and Creations salon owner Lourd Ramos at the Goody Hair Affair event
and got fantastic tips on how you can perfect styling your own locks:

1. Always prep your hair.

Prior to styling, Lourd suggests to
use mousse to add volume to the hair and anti-frizz spray to tame the
locks. Another product he highly recommends is a heat protecting spray
to control damage on the locks caused by hot tools.

2. Your hair tools matter.

"You always have to make sure you
use the right tools for your hair," he says. We learned that when
detangling wet hair, wide tooth combs will work best, because they won't
break your locks. When blow drying your hair, you should pick up a blow
drying brush because the holes in it will allow heat to pass through
it, regulate the temperature, and control damage. Remember to invest in
good quality hair tools—they will last you a lifetime.

3. Practice using a blow dryer!

While most Pinays are used
to using a flat iron to straighten or curl their hair, Lourd suggests
that using a blow dryer is better. "Blow drying adds volume," he says.
And it won't leave your tresses looking flat! 

4. Clean up your baby hairs with this clever trick.

Annoyed with those little strands of
hair that stick up when you pull your hair back to sleek ponytail?
Lourd reveals that you can tame them by spritzing on some hairspray on a
fine-toothed comb and running it on top of your hair.

5. Hair rollers will give you pretty hair, too!

Go back to the classics—there's a
reason why they've stuck around in the first place. We learned about
Goody's Start Style Finish Select-a-Curl—velcro rollers that you stretch
out flat, so you can adjust how big you want your curls to be. Lourd
suggests hair curlers to add volume to your crown and create pretty soft
curls—perfect for every day! (P.S. They're fantastic for traveling,
too!)

6. Take care of your tools!

"Taking care of your tools will make
them last forever. It's important to clean them regularly," Lourd says.
To get rid of residue and other gunk that's left on your hair tools, he
says to first mix some soap and cold water in a bowl. Then, soak your
hair tools for 20-30 minutes. Afterwards, rinse your tools and soak them
in lukewarm water to get rid of all the dirt and to sanitize them.

7. Have a peg!

Whether you're going for waves,
out-of-water look, or sweet braids, have a peg on hand to have an idea
of how you want to style your hair.
