Smooth hair is on the top of everyone's wishlist, but isn't always easy to get (especially when Mother Nature has other things in mind). Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm is a lightweight cream-based product that leaves hair feeling smooth and manageable throughout the day.
Loxa staffers Melanie and Tyler put Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm to the test to see how it would work on their thick hair. Here's how to use it:
What you'll need:
Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm
A blow dryer
Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm should be applied to damp (but not dripping wet!) hair. Start this style by towel drying your hair.
Step 1: Dispense Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm onto your hand. For my shoulder length, thick hair, Melanie used the size of a quarter (about three pumps of the product). For hair that is shorter and finer, use less. Remember: you can always add more product easily! It's harder to remove too much.
Step 2: Rub palms together to evenly distribute product.
Step 3: Work product through your hair from root to tip, focusing primarily on the middle and the ends (which is where most breakage and frizz appears).
Step 4: Using your fingers or a comb, comb through hair to remove any tangles.
Step 5: Blow dry using your desired method. For a sleek style, use a paddle or vented brush and point your dryer nozzle downward. For more volume, use a round brush and lift frequently at the root.
From coarse waves to a smooth style, the Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm transformed her blowout!
Step 1: Tyler started by blowing drying hair lightly while combing it back to the right. Make sure not to blow dry it completely because the Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm works best with damp hair.
Step 2: For short, thick hair, he used a single pump of the product and worked it into hands thoroughly. Then run fingers through hair on the top only from front to back, creating the style you want.
In just two simple steps, the Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm allowed Tyler to create a simple, classic men's hairstyle. "This balm gave my hair a natural, smooth look that was flexible yet durable throughout the work day."
