Lea Michelle With Long Hair1. Cleanse hair in lukewarm water with a product designed to address the needs of your hair type, texture and current condition. If your hair is dry or damaged from other factors consider utilizing a hydrating cleansing product. Or you may wish to select a Diluted Shampoo (DS), Conditioner Only Wash (Co Wash) or similar cleansing methodology.

2. Rinse cleansing formula from the hair and then apply an appropriate rinse-out conditioner from the tops of the ears to the ends. If your hair tends to be fine or thin use a rinse out product which is very light.

3. Detangle strands with fingers or a wide-tooth comb working in horizontal sections from the ends up to the roots.

4. Rinse out conditioner and finish with a cool or cold water rinse.

5. Towel blot to remove excess water.

6. Apply styling cocktail which may include, but not be limited to, detangling spray, defrisant based leave-in conditioner or styling mousse. If hair is not naturally straight you may want to add in a dab of straightening gel or cream.

7. Create desired part. Lea tends to wear side or center parts. Separate hair into 2" horizontal sections and blow dry straight with a 100% boar bristle paddle brush.

8. After hair is 100% dry separate into 1 1/2 to 2" sections. Apply a thermal protectant to each section before flat ironing with a 1 1/2 to 2" flat iron. Run the iron through each section of hair a few times to achieve a bone straight finish.

If you wish to add texture to the edges then use the iron to slightly twist the end up to create a curve.

9. Once hair is completely cool apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of the hands and work through the strands from top of the ear to the ends. Do not apply to the roots.
