Chromatique Style Select Waver Root Boost--Volume right from the root
Specially designed micro crimp plates add volume right from the root
Give your hair a frizz-free boost with the revolutionary new Root Boost from BaByliss. This innovative micro crimper makes it easy to add texture and lift to your hair for volume that lasts longer than back combing, while also saving your hair from becoming an unmanageable frizzy mess.
Inspired by salon hairdressers, the Root Boost takes advantage of the long-lasting effects of crimping. However, it is entirely unlike other crimpers. Its specially designed micro crimping ceramic plates allow you to crimp close to the root of the hair where ordinary crimpers struggle to reach. The result is a more effective "boost" where it is needed most for a big hair look that lasts longer than ever.
Unlike ordinary crimpers which crimp a wide section of the hair, the ultra sleek Root Boost creates a narrow crimp that is less visible, meaning it is unlikely anyone will discover your secret to voluminous style.
STEP 1: Section away the top layer of hair
STEP 2: Crimp the underneath layer, close to the root
Root Boost gives you volume that lasts longer
STEP 3: Release top section and layer hair
Micro crimp design for volume that lasts longer
Designed with slim micro crimp plates that are only 15 mm wide, the Root Boost allows you to texturise and volumise your hair right from the root, giving your hair the boost it needs to stay full all day long.
Depending on your hair type, set the slim ceramic heating plates to one of the three temperatures--140°C, 170°C or 200°C. If you have delicate, fine or coloured hair, use the lower heat setting. For thicker hair, use the higher heat setting.
Once the Root Boost has reached the desired temperature, it is simply a matter of sectioning your hair and adding texture to each layer for that full volume look you love.
After only a few seconds of crimping, each section of hair that has been treated by the Root Boost will have volume and lift which lasts longer than back combing and avoids giving your hair messy frizz.
Styling tips for the Root Boost
The Root Boost puts a professional styling technique right in your hands. Professional salon hairdressers use crimpers to give their celebrity clients the big hair look that we all love.
As celebrity hairdresser Beverly C says, “Crimping is a clever way to create texture and root lift--we’ve been using this technique in the salon for years. The ultra slim ceramic plates on the Root Boost are fantastic--you can get right in to the roots for a really long lasting effect.”
For ultimate hold and lift, use hairspray at the root of each hair section before using the Root Boost. For maximum body and fullness, start by sectioning a small layer of hair at the nape of the neck and begin crimping the hair close to the root, continue around the hair line of the section.
Continue releasing sections of hair down and adding texture at the roots until you have the level of volume you want. The top section of your hair should be styled as normal, so be careful not to crimp hair too close to the top section as crimp marks maybe visible on your final style.
Total control and convenience
The Root Boost lets you control your hair as if you were a salon hairdresser. Its 2 metre salon style swivel cord moves as you move, so you can avoid getting caught up in a cord as you style and volumise your hair.
For even more convenience and control, the Root Boost features an on/off button. It also has an automatic shut off feature. This automatically switches the Root Boost off if it has been on for more than 72 minutes, continuously.
