Prom Hairstyles - How to DIY Sedu Hairstyles

Getting a perfect Sedu hairstyle isn't a hit and miss affair. It is not necessary only salon can get a perfect Sedu style. Of course, to get the very best results, there are lots of tips and tricks that hairstylists use.

Even then, you are still able to get salon quality Sedu hair at home, provided you need to know the following tricks.
  • 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, so wash your hair before you start any hair do.
  • 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
  • A straightening 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 easily
  • 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
Lastly, make sure you got your hair cut regularly. Know what you want. Decide what length and shape you want before you talk to your hairstylist.
