Whether you want to add weightless volume to your pin-straight hair or define your bouncy curls, choosing the right products and using the proper care methods for your hair is a must! Read on for tips on how to achieve your best hair yet.
Type 1: Straight Hair
If your hair is straight and has trouble holding styles, you likely fall under Type 1. This hair type requires products that add volume and texture without weighing down your fine strands. Dry shampoo is a great way to encourage your hair to hold styles longer while keeping oil at bay. The Living Proof perfect Hair Day™ Dry Shampoo is designed to neutralize oils and sweat while adding grit and texture without weighing down your fine strands. Spray it in a sweeping motion throughout sections of your hair, then tousle the white residue into your roots. When styling, you’ll notice that your hair holds onto volume much more easily and your ‘do will last much longer!
Type 2: Wavy Hair
If your curl pattern forms an “S” shape, you probably have wavy hair. This hair type isn’t particularly oily or dry, and it can be prone to frizz. After washing your hair, avoid vigorous towel-drying and opt for a cotton t-shirt or microfiber towel wrap instead! Additionally, avoid brushing your hair when it’s dry. Then use a wide-toothed comb to detangle, and scrunch your waves while your hair is still damp.
Type 3: Curly Hair
This hair type is curly and usually a combination of loose, springy spirals and tight corkscrews. Definition is key for these kinds of curls, so you’ll want to use products that clarify the hair and scalp while retaining your hair’s natural oils. Use products like the OUAI Detox Shampoo to clarify the hair and scalp while retaining your hair’s natural oils. After, apply a leave-in conditioner or curl cream to ensure your locks are well-defined and conditioned!
Type 4: Coily Hair
This hair type is tightly coiled and often takes on a “Z” pattern. Coily hair doesn’t have many protective, cuticle layers, making it quite fragile and prone to dryness. Thicker, more robust products are key for defining coils and reducing dryness. Whether you’re creating a wash-and-go or prepping for a protective style, the AG Hair Re: Coil Curl Activator is a great styling cream that helps with stretching, defining, and strengthening.
