Use the ghd narrow tail comb to divide your hair into four equal quarters – front-right, front-left, back-right and back-left.

Starting in the front-right quarter, apply volumising product

step four: Starting in the front-right quarter, apply volumising product

First, focus on the front-right quarter of hair. Apply a generous amount of ghd total volume foam for extra body.

With your remaining hand, direct the ghd helios™ hair dryer into your other hand from above, rotating gently.

Release the section and then repeat on the one above. Unclip it and use the same technique in reverse, twisting the hair in the opposite direction.

Do this until the hair feels 100% dry

Continue this blow-dry technique until the section is completely dry.

Repeat on the rest of the hair
