Got a hair or beauty challenge? Well, the solution very well might be right there in your bathroom or vanity, amongst your trusty Keratin Complex styling products!

We’ve asked Keratin Complex® professionals in the field and in the corporate offices to share their favorite beauty hacks, or unusual ways to use these products to solve everyday beauty, hair or skin problems! Here are their tips and tricks, organized by Keratin Complex product:

Keratin Complex Flex Flow

 

FLEX FLOW FLEXIBLE SHAPING HAIRSPRAY

Eyebrow perfector: “Flex Flow is great for keeping brows in place. Since eyebrows are sisters, not twins, there is always one that misbehaves. I spray a disposable mascara wand with Flex Flow and comb the brows so they stay put!”

Nisha Patel, Keratin Complex Inspiration Team member

GLOWTION POTION STYLING OIL

Skin oil: “Use Glowtion Potion as a body moisturizer and repair oil for dry skin or frayed cuticles.”

Alexia Argeros, Keratin Complex Events Manager

INFUSION KERATIN REPLENISHER

Flyaway fixer: “After flat-ironing, use Infusion to control the shorter pieces that can have a tendency to stand up. It’s lightweight so it won’t weigh the hair down like oil-based products can and won't feel sticky like hairspray or pomades can, yet will still maintain movement.”

Daniel Carter, Keratin Complex Elite Inspiration Team member

Updo controller: “A small dab applied with a clean toothbrush is amazing for tackling baby hairs that pop out during an updo.”

Abraham Sprinkle, Keratin Complex Elite Inspiration Team member

Keratin Complex KeraWhip

 

KERAWHIP® HYDRATING CREAM CONDITIONER

Deep conditioner: “Use KeraWhip as a leave-in deep conditioner for coarse, dry, frizzy hair.”

Molly Woodruff, Keratin Complex Senior National Education Manager

Shaving cream: “It’s the only product I use for shaving my legs; the mousse-like consistency makes your razor glide easily, while the conditioning ingredients make my legs super-soft!”

Lauren Santiago, Keratin Complex Social Media & PR Coordinator

LIFT OFF ROOT AMPLIFYING STYLING GEL

Heat spray for styling wand: “Using this in lieu of hairspray creates a soft curl but with memory. Simply take dry strands and lightly mist with Lift Off before using a styling wand. Remember to let the hair cool before manipulating, and your waves and curls will last all day.”

Abraham Sprinkle

METAMORFIX MULTI-PURPOSE COLOR PERFECTOR

Shine booster: “This is a great instant shine treatment for lifeless hair. Used once a month, it creates an amazing shine and protects the cuticle for a glass-like surface.”

Abraham Sprinkle

SWEET DEFINITION TEXTURIZING SUGAR MIST

Curl refresher: “I like to use Sweet Definition as a refresher spray on day-old wavy or curly hair. It brings the curl back to life, and the scent is sweet as sugar!”

Amanda Intoccia, co-owner, Bamboo Salon, Staten Island, NY

THERMO-SHINE THERMAL PROTECTANT MIST

Gentle detangler: “Everyone already knows I love Thermo-Shine and use it daily, but I spray it on my hair and use the Keratin Complex Flex Paddle Brush to detangle because it’s much gentler in comparison to anything else.”

Nisha Patel

Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean

 

VANILLA BEAN DEEP CONDITIONER

Pre-shampoo color protector: “Fill a spray bottle one-third with Vanilla Bean, the rest with water; shake until blended and leave in the shower. Before washing your hair, spray your hair while dry, then wet your hair and shampoo/condition as usual with your favorite Keratin Complex shampoo and conditioner. Use it every time you shampoo to protect your color from fading; it makes a huge difference in your hair!”

Pat LaFerle, Keratin Complex Inspiration Team member

Keratin Complex Vita Volume

 

VITA VOLUME BOOSTING FOAM

Hair texturizer: “One of my favorite summer hair hacks is to cocktail Vita Volume with Sweet Definition sugar spray! I love to work Vita Volume throughout towel-dried hair and with my hands, scrunch hair to encourage natural wave. Finish with a little Sweet Definition for that just-off-the-beach feel.”

Amanda Intoccia

VOLUMIZING DRY SHAMPOO LIFT POWDER

Emergency deodorant: “Since this is basically a powder and it smells nice, you can use it as an emergency deodorant to refresh armpits or feet ... that’s why I always have a bottle of the Neutral dry shampoo in my purse!”

Lauren Santiago

Eyebrow enhancer: “You can use Volumizing Dry Shampoo Lift Powder on the eyebrows; it works as a boosting product to enhance, add fullness, and even a little tint.” (Just be careful when applying so as not to get it in your eyes!)

Paul Dobbert, Keratin Complex Inspiration Team member and owner of Tangles Hair Lounge in Riverside, CA

Root concealer: “My hair is a natural level 2 (darkest brown) and my base color is a level 6 (dark blonde), so sometimes when my roots are very visible, I brush on the Brunette Dry Shampoo right over my part to soften the dark natural hair. I've recommended this tip to natural dark blondes when their roots are more visible or if anyone wants their grays to be more translucent instead of stark white.”
