Getting a perfect Sedu hairstyle isn’t a hit and miss affair and it’s not just a case of buying a Sedu – although it helps!. To get the very best results, there are lots of tips and tricks that hairstylists use.

If you want to get salon quality Sedu hair at home, you need to know the tricks of the trade…

best Sedu hairstyle tips one

  • Don’t use your Sedu on unwashed hair. Any dirt or grease in the hair will be ‘baked’ into it by the heat of the iron – and it will cause damage to the hair cuticle
  • If you use hairspray, buy a good brand. The better products hold hair without it being crunchy and ‘set’ and will hold your hair until you choose to brush it out!
  • Applying serum to wet hair prior to drying, or to dry hair after styling doesn’t just give a great shine. It helps to lock moisture into your hair and improves condition
  • If your color has faded, try using a Sedu on it! Color treatments lift the cuticle of the hair in order to penetrate and actually work! This is why color damages your hair. A Sedu iron can smooth the cuticles back down again and let them reflect light to give a lovely shine and a rejuvenated color!

Hair washing tips

  • Massage your hair gently – don’t scrub at it. Wet hair is fragile and can break easilybest Sedu hairstyle tips two
  • Rinse the shampoo out with hot water. This will open up the hair cuticle and allow the conditioner to penetrate well
  • Use a ‘product build-up’ remover shampoo once every few washes. This will rid the hair of excess product which can dull the hair over time

Conditioning tips

  • Always condition your hair after washing
  • Before you apply your conditioner, squeeze as much water out of your hair as possible. If you don’t do this, the conditioner will be diluted in your hair and won’t be as effective
  • Only apply conditioner to your hair from ear level down. This is to prevent a build-up of product in your crown area which will loose you volume in your finished style
  • Once your conditioner has been rinsed out, give your hair another final rinse with cool water – or cold, if you can bear it! This helps to close the hair cuticle and lock moisture in
  • Always use a wide-toothed comb on hair before blow drying. Don’t ever brush it as this can easily cause damage

Blow Drying Tips

best Sedu hairstyle tips three

  • If you’re going to blow-dry or Sedu your hair, always – always! – apply heat protection first. Nothing fries quicker than unprotected hair and you’ll undo all your other good work!
  • After you have blow dried your hair on a warm setting, go back over it with cooler air. Most hair dryers now feature a ‘cool shot’ button! This sets the style, shines the hair and smoothes out any final kinks
  • If you’re going to Sedu your hair straight – blow dry it with a paddle brush. This starts to get your hair straight and will make straightening easier and quicker
  • Ceramic hair brushes are a great help when blow drying. The heat from the dryer heat up the ceramic ‘core’ of the brush and it starts to emit negative ions which smoothes the hair. It will also make straightening easier and quicker
  • If you regularly blow dry your hair, always use products for dry, damaged or colored hair. These are the most moisturizing and will go a long way to counteracting heat damage
  • Treat yourself to a lightweight hairdryer. Even lightweights can be very powerful now so you won’t lose power – but you will lose those aching arms!
  • Try and let your hair air-dry whenever possible

All great hairstyles begin with a good cut!best Sedu hairstyle tips five

Here are some tips for getting that…

  • Know what you want. Decide what length and shape you want. Take some pictures with you to the stylist – but make sure that the person in the picture has the same hair type as you to avoid disappointment
  • Make sure the stylist talks to you before your hair is shampooed. Once it’s wet, it’s very difficult to know what hair is like and how it normally behaves!
  • Have a lengthy discussion with your stylist before the cut begins. Booking a consultation prior to your cutting appointment is a good idea. Make sure you both agree on what’s going to be done

Many of these tips show you that hairdressing is not just an art – it’s a science too!
Understanding the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of hair care will help you to get your hair looking good and keep it that way!
