HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Before beginning, be sure to cleanse your client’s hair using a Nioxin 3-Part System. You will be layering one product at a time onto towel-dried hair. This allows you to focus on certain areas that might have varying amounts of texture and require a different product solution to achieve the desired end result.

  • 2

    Begin by applying Diamax to the root area around the entire head. Comb the product through the midshaft and ends using a wide-tooth comb. Diamax with hair thickening extra fusion helps to increase the thickness of each existing hair strand for a fuller-looking head of hair.

  • 3

    Next, spray Therm Activ Protector evenly throughout the hair for heat protection. Therm Activ Protector with LightPlex Technology is a heat-activated spray that protects the hair against breakage.

  • 4

    Then apply Rejuvenating Elixir to the midlengths and ends by emulsifying the product in your hands. Rejuvenating Elixir with LightPlex Technology is a leave-in elixir that helps rejuvenate the hair’s texture so it is soft to the touch while leaving it with natural movement.

  • 5

    Next, layer Bodifying Foam from roots to ends. For even distribution, be sure to comb throughout the hair using a wide-tooth comb. Bodifying Foam with Pro-Thick Technology is a styling foam that provides hold and creates a fuller, thicker look while giving the hair manageable body.

  • 6

    Begin your blow-dry by removing 80 percent of the moisture using your fingers to create lift at the root area.

  • 7

    Section from the front of the ear to the top of the head on both sides.

  • 8

    Section the back of the head into four sections for control.

  • 9

    Begin your blow-dry at the front so that the client sees the immediate results of the product.

  • 10

    Using a soft round brush with medium heat and low tension and working with your sections, lift the hair up and away from the scalp to create a soft and smooth effect in the hair.
