Wondering how to get 70s hair inspired curls? Reach for the Luscious Curl Defining Cream with Chia Seed Oil, a lightweight conditioning cream that will give you silky, hydrated and defined curls. Start by rubbing the cream between your palms and apply to damp hair. Work the cream from root to tip and blow-dry using a diffuser or air-dry.

Curious how to get 70s hair inspired curly waves? For this blow-dry look, you’ll need a curved boar-bristle brush, crocodile clips and the Regenerating Serum with Prickly Pear Oil. This serum will protect against heat up to 230°C (440F) and is super-fast absorbing, so it won’t weigh hair down.

How to give hair texture with a smooth finish? A boar bristle brush has soft bristles for a silky, smooth blow-dry. Start blow-drying hair in sections and use crocodile clips to pin curls up. Once all sections are complete, remove clips for a frizz-free, bouncy curls look.
