    Prepare the hair for blow drying by misting with L’ANZA Healing ColorCare Magic Bullet to close the cuticle and protect haircolor. Next, apply a small amount of L’ANZA Keratin Healing Oil Hair Treatment to damp hair to add smoothness, shine and heat protection. Mist hair with L’ANZA Spray Gel for added control. Blow-dry with a Denman-style brush, moving hair back and forth. To complete this look, take a small amoung of L’ANZA Shape Putty and emulsify in the palms of your hands. Work through dry hair to enhance texture.
