Ever wonder if you’re applying your luxury hair care products in the right order? This guide sets the record straight!
Here, we’ll walk you through the steps of applying your products in an order that will enhance their abilities – so that you walk out that door with salon-quality hair every time!
Side note: you may decide to use just some of the products – that’s OK. But whatever products you do choose; it’s important to apply them in the correct sequence.
Here are the general guidelines –
Step 1: Pre-wash treatment
Before you reach for the shampoo, you may want to consider adding a pre-wash treatment to your hair care regimen.
Try our Prodigio Regenerating Treatment for amazing results! It has been designed for the specific needs of over-processed, sensistised or damaged hair.
Infused with over 95% naturally derived ingredients such as shea butter, olive, and Keratin proteins, this pre-wash treatment replenishes, fortifies & softens your hair– creating a healthy foundation for you to work your magic on!
Step 2: Choose the right shampoo
Right – now it’s time to wash those locks!
For hair to look grand, it’s important that you remove dirt and product build-up before you apply MORE products. To get this right, we suggest washing your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo that works well with your hair type (or will help you to reach your hair goals).

Step 3: Rinse out treatments (masks and conditioners)
Moisturising your hair is important to maintain locks that are soft, supple, shiny and ultimately in their best condition.
After shampooing, you can apply your conditioner or your hair mask.
Rossano Ferretti Parma offers an assortment of conditioning treatments for all hair types. Inspired by nature, these formulas are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. They also contain no harsh chemicals – instead, they nourish hair using naturally derived ingredients for the best, natural results.
Step 4: Leave-in treatments
Leave-in treatments are great for locking moisture in hair and protecting strands from harsh elements, such as the sun’s rays and air pollution.
Our Vivace Leave in Conditioner is a go-to treatment for many of our clients, as it can be used as an alternative to traditional conditioner (for those busy days when you’re short on time) or as a pre-styling aid to help add extra hydration to your hair.
This is a spray that works well with all hair types and uses natural ingredients to condition and protect hair without weighing it down. We just LOVE how it strengthens and softens, for silkier hair that’s more manageable!
Step 5: Heat protectants (blow-dry aids)
If you’re planning on blow-drying your hair or styling it with hot styling tools (curlers, straighteners, etc.), then this step is not one to be missed.
When you add a heat protectant to your hair, you help to seal the hair shaft. This, in turn, helps to prevent moisture loss, colour fade and broken strands.
To optimally protect your hair from heat, we have two product suggestions:
- Dolce Satin Glow Booster (also adds a velvet-like sheen)
- Grandioso Spray (adds volume to hair while it protects it)
Drawing inspiration from the beautiful Italian landscape, both luxury hair care products have been formulated to protect hair and nourish it at the same time – call it a win-win!
Step 6: Hair Mousse
If you plan on adding mousse to your tresses, now’s your chance.
The Favoloso Volumising Mousse will help you to whip your locks into shape – providing a volume boost and added bounce (with a light hold and no stickiness).
For many, our luxury hair mousse has become a styling essential! Apply on damp hair and proceed to blow-dry or air dry for optimal results.
Step 7: Hair serum
Hair serums are more than an indulgence that leave your locks smelling great. They can be wonderful styling aids, too! It makes sense that you’d want to add them to your routine!
So, just before you lift the blow-dryer, add this step for optimal styling results.
Not sure which serum to use? Our advice:
- Use Intenso Serum to tame thick, unruly hair
- Use Vita Serum to plump up thin locks
- Use Velluto Straightening Serum to smoothen frizzy & unruly hair without weighing it down
Now you can dry your hair with a hairdryer (or naturally) before heading towards the very last step.
Step 8: Hair oil
Finish off your “do” with a product that will add shine and movement. Hair oils are always the best for this.
Try Brillante Protect and Shine Oil to moisturise, seal, and protect hair from the sun (perfect for summer days) or use Prodigio Oil to keep split ends at bay for a smoother, maintained look throughout the day. Or (our suggestion) – use both!
There you have it, beautiful ladies and gentlemen! Layering your hair care products in the right order is as easy as 123! Next up, read our guide on how much hair product to apply.
