8. Choose one multitasking hair product and apply it with a vent brush to evenly distribute it
"Applying several products to your hair takes time," says Hawkins. "So to speed up your routine, use one styling product that does multiple things, and then apply it using a vent brush for even application. Once you've brushed the product into your hair, rinse off your brush and continue styling as you normally would." One multitasking styler he recommends: Alterna CC Cream, which delivers 10 benefits in one, providing moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, UV protection, manageability, strength, anti-breakage, heat protection, and light hold.
