How To Get Rid Of Hair Bumps
Hairstylist Andrew Jose is here to show you some techniques to get the very, very best out of your hair. Follow along as Andrew shows you how to tame hair bumps by using mousse and blow drying it straight.
How to get rid of hair bumps. Hair bumps are frustrating waves of movement in the hair that are disrupting your hairstyle. It is usually caused by the way that the hair line has grown.
If we look at the hair line on our model today, you can see that the hair line grows directly into the center and so when the hair comes down, this will cause, even in longer hair, the hair to have a gentle movement to one side or the other. It is very frustrating if you want to weigh your hair straight. So, the best way to get rid of it is to actually blow dry it into place or to use the straightening iron just to iron that little bit of movement out of it.
Today, we are going to blow dry across the hair and across the hairstyle. This is Sonya who is going to show us how to get rid of hair bumps. The first thing she is going to do is to apply mousse through the hair.
Do you want to just apply on the lower part of the hair? How to do it? That is it. So, taking a small amount of mousse, place it into the palm of the hand and literally just apply it right through the mid lengths over the ends of your hair. Now, the reason for using a comb is especially relevant when you're styling the front of your hair because then, you are picking up all of the fine little hairs around the face, but let's comb it through, and then what you don't need is lots of mousse on the roots of the hair unless you're particularly looking for volume.
A good formula of mousse won't be sticky but will just give hold. If you can start off by smoothing the hair to show us how to get rid of the hair bump, you will notice that the nozzle of the hair dryer is pointing down the hair shaft at all times. This is so that you are smoothing the cuticle and controlling the hair as much as possible.
Notice the tension she puts on it with her thumb and finger, pulling quite firmly down on the hair. The mousse will not only hold the hair but it will protect it from the heat of the hair dryer as well. So, all of the hair bumps have been removed, and even though the hair is growing into the center, using the mousse and the strong blow drying technique will keep the hair very, very smooth.
If you don't have the chance to wet your hair, shampoo it, blow dry it and start from scratch, or if you want this to last for a very long time, then use straightening irons with a small amount of heat protector, just a light spritz through the hair to protect the hair's condition and use the irons again. Take your small section. Work from the root to the tip, running right through and run through the hair several times, always keeping the irons moving so that you're gently removing any excess moisture from the hair to really allow the shape and to keep the bumps free from your hair for the longest possible time.
That is how to get rid of hair bumps. .
