Product layering and how to do it

Popular with celebrities and hairstylists alike, product layering is a sure-fire way of getting super soft, luscious locks in a few simple steps. While it might seem counter-productive to add many different products to your hair after washing, layering your hair-care products correctly will leave you with a great finish that lasts. The most important thing to remember? Use good quality products for hair that is healthy, glowy, and strong - and lucky for you, all of the products here at GlamIt are sulfate and paraben-free! 

Start with a masque 

Inject some care and moisture into your hair by starting off your layering regime with the Balmain Repair Masque. This is a great product to start with as it helps repair damage caused by weather, heat styling, and everyday wear and tear while leaving your hair feeling soft and luxurious.

 Apply product from the mid-length to the ends of your hair before wrapping it up in a warm towel and leaving it to soak up for at least 30 minutes before rinsing. 

Wash and rinse

 In order to effectively layer your hair care products, make sure that your hair clean before beginning. This will ensure that the products not only last longer, but that there are no residual oils on the hair to prevent important products like serums and sprays to penetrate the hair effectively. It is important to use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner so that your hair doesn't feel as if it is drying out during this process.

We love the CHI Royal Treatment Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner as they not only strengthen the hair but protect it from breakage while ensuring that it is healthy, strong, and super glossy after your wash. 

 Amp up the moisture

After gently wringing hair dry, add a generous pump of the CHI Luxury Black Seed Oil Leave-in Conditioner to help soften and smooth the hair. This will also help prevent flyaways and frizz and is a must-do step if you decide to skip the heat styling tool. Be sure to apply the majority of the product from the mid-length to the ends of the hair, gently wiping what's left on your hands over your scalp.

 Add a heat protectant

If you do plan on using heat, then this is a crucial step that you cannot miss. Gently brush hair and spray a heat protectant spray like the BioSilk Silk Therapy Thermal Shield all over your hair. Blow-dry and style as usual. 

 Add some shine

Now that you’re ready to show off your soft and glossy hair, make sure that you finish off your look with a quick spritz of the luxurious Balmain Silk Perfume. Not only does it give you an incredible scent that lingers, but it works to detangle, protect, and a beautiful shine to your hair.  

Color-treated hair? No problem! Be sure to add a mist of the CHI Rose Hip UV Protecting Oil before leaving the house. This product not only works to prevent color fading but protects against the harsh UV rays and enhances the color tones in your hair!
