Do you know what kind of hair products are right for you and how to use them, especially when it comes to hair types? Simply put, the hair care should be determined by the hair type you have. Straight and fine hair requires different care than curly hairs. Here is how you can take care of your specific hair type.
For Kinky And Coiled Hair:
Tight locks need an intense, thoughtfully considered an approach to hair care products. Start with the shower using a deep conditioner that should be rinsed out halfway. This is because the residue of the conditioner will keep the hair smooth and shiny. Once you get out of the shower, immediately comb through a leave-in conditioner.
Twist large chunks of curls around your fingers using oil or silicone serum as your hair get almost 50 percent dry. Choose creamy products for your hair. Don’t use the products that contain alcohol, dry shampoo, and strong-hold gels.
For Fine And Straight Hair:
Thickening shampoos and conditioners complement fine and straight hair types. However, the conditioner should only be used on the very ends of the hair. Make sure to rinse your hair appropriately.
Always use a heat protecting spray from mid-length through the ends of your damp hair, then comb through a mound of mousse while styling your hair.
Dry shampoos can be used to add texture, grip, and bulk to fine hair. You can use it throughout the day to create a fresh lift.
But too much buildup can kill volume, requiring you to wash it out within a few days. One more thing—avoid oils and silicone serums as they might affect fine hair.
For Thick And Straight Hair:
Thick and straight hair let you create any style. However, it also calls for care. Kick-off your styling by combing a few drops of styling oil through the wet hair section by section, and then dab a small dollop of styling cream. Use shine sprays to combat dullness caused by the bulkiness of your hair. And finish it off with a shine spray from mid-length to ends.
Don’t use volumizers as they offset the effect of any styling product.
For Wavy Hair:
Wavy hair requires pouf control and frizz. However, that shouldn’t be achieved with rich shampoos and styling products. Instead, use lighter styling products being rich in natural oils rather than silicone. These products leave smooth waves without any stiffness.
If your waves require a little coaxing to get their maximum potential, prefer salt sprays over gels and curls cream. This is because the pump trigger lets you distribute it over the hair evenly. Once you are done with the application, part your hair and let them air-dry. If you end up with messy hair after drying up, you can apply a little styling oil to them with your fingertips.
But you need to avoid pomades as they are too sticky; gels that can be crunchy and straightening creams that can be too heavy.
For Curly Hair:
You need to combat dryness and frizz. Sulfate-free shampoos and rich conditioners with silicone and panthenol can be the solution as they lock in moisture. Keep in mind that fine curls can trap moisture only before they fall flat. Choose water-based styling products if you’re using a heavy conditioner.
Wet your hair in the shower and apply a conditioner from the mid-length to the ends when you aren’t shampooing. Use gel or curl refreshing mist to keep the curls in place.
