My hair is naturally straight and immediately goes flat after styling. How do I create long lasting volume?
To create more volume, GATSBY recommends Air Rise. First spread product into hands, then apply gently with your fingers to the middle and outer portions of your hair in an upward motion towards the tips. Do not over-apply or apply to the roots. Twist hair into bundles on the sides of your head focusing on the tips. Repeat along the neckline and near the front of your face. If hair becomes flat, repeat this action and use a scrunching motion.
My hair is soft and thin, and I can’t create movement or get my hair to stand up. Should I use a little extra wax?
Even when your hair is too soft and thin to create movement, it’s always best to start with a small amount of wax. Applying the wax all at once can immediately make your hair heavy and flat. As needed, apply wax several times and in small amounts. Also, when you apply wax, try to bond it firmly with your hair. For soft and thin hair, it is recommended to finish your look with a little holding spray to prevent the hair from becoming flat.
When applying wax, should my hair be dry or slightly wet?
To create a desired hair style, it’s best to avoid putting wax on wet hair. Instead, you should dry hair while shaping it into your desired look to create the basic form of your style. After the hair is completely dry, you can apply the wax. Depending on texture and length, putting wax on wet hair can cause the outline, form and flow of the hair to change when it dries. Also, if the roots are wet, the volume may be lost. Therefore, it is recommended to use wax after the hair is completely dry.
It’s hard to wash off the wax from my hair. How can I solve this problem?
The main component of wax is oil. If a lot of wax is used, it may be hard to wash it off with regular shampooing.
1.Before shampooing and while the hair is still dry, apply and comb a conditioner through the hair.
2.Rinse out conditioner with warm water and shampoo hair as usual.
It is easier to wash off using an oiler agent than the wax.
Note: For best results, make sure to rinse all conditioner from hair before shampooing. Using a slightly warmer-than-usual water will soften the solid components of wax and wash them away more easily. Repeat the above procedure if you are still finding trouble removing the wax.
