Key Things for Your Hair Type

Are You Picking the Right Products to Use for Your Hair Type?
With so many options and varieties of hair care products, it can be very confusing trying to decide what is best for your hair. With 89% of us feeling dissatisfied with our hair, we can't help but think that this might be due to not knowing what option is the best for our individual hair type. So, we wanted to break down a few basic keywords to look for the next time you're buying product.

Thick/Coarse Hair:
Thicker strands tend to be bulky and can sometimes appear to be dull looking. We suggest using smoothing shampoos as well as shampoo with oil and keratinShine spray will do wonders for your locks for a more sleek look.
Curly/Wavy Hair:
Curly hair needs frizz and poof control. Moisturizing products (shampoo & conditioner) are a must. This will help to tame the frizz and dry, fragile ends. Also, using natural oils will give your hair that bounce you need. Pro Tip: For really curly hair try to use the least amount of heat as possible. When using a blow dryer, make sure to attach a diffuser.
Kinky/Coiled Hair:
Your hair is about 50% dry. This means you should be using generous amounts of styling oils, silicone serums, and more creamy products. Try to stay away from sprays. Using your fingers to apply product will ensure a more even distribution. Use deep conditioners and masks in the shower and only rinse it halfway. Conditioner residue will help keep curls shiny and smooth.

Fine/Straight Hair:
Fine hair requires volume. Look for products that add volume and thicken. Dry shampoo is also going to help add texture to your limp hair.
Colored/Chemically Treated Hair:
For the longevity of your color, perm, or straightened hair, you will need to use a shampoo that is sulfate-free. When choosing a styling product, opt for a leave-in with UV and thermal protectors. The more vivid/bright your hair color the more you'll want to make sure you're using cooler temped water and washing less. Sulfates will strip your hair of chemicals, so make sure you're avoiding them as much as possible.

  1. Thank You for helping me decide which products to use!

  2. I've got long straight hair that is not thick and not thin. There is a lot of it and though it is already smooth, I would choose the smoothing shampoos as well as shampoo with oil and keratin.


We love to hear from you!
