Smooth, polished strands
When hair is damp, massage a dime-size drop of shine-enhancing polish between hands, then use fingers to comb product through from roots to ends. Next, separate strands into two-inch sections. With a nylon-bristled flat brush, grip hair at the roots and blow-dry with the nozzle pointing downwards to smooth cuticles and prevent fly-aways.
For an extra boost, "pull sections of hair at the crown up and slightly forward," says Washington D.C.-based stylist Johnny Wright, a.k.a the First Lady's mane man. "Then blast the hot air from the underside to pump up the volume on top."
