One of the hottest hairstyle trends today is textured hair. It takes some time and effort to create a great-looking textured hairstyle, but just about anyone can accomplish it. Depending on your current hairstyle habits, you may not have to change your routine much. It may be as simple as using sulfate free shampoo and conditioners rather than your normal product. Regardless of your current habits, here are some great tips for getting the perfect textured hairstyle.
1. Ditch the Comb
Your comb may be good enough to make your hair look presentable, but if you truly want a good textured hairstyle, it’s time to invest in some new quality hair care tools. Combs make it difficult to texturize your hair, so opt for a brush with boar bristles instead. Remember, you’re going for a natural look, so a comb is rarely your best option.
2. Don’t Over-Wash
Washing too frequently can lead to dry hair. Reducing the amount of times you wash your hair each week will allow you to add some texture to your hair and you’ll notice an almost immediate difference in the appearance. It will also help to use sulfate free shampoo and conditioners for the few times you do wash your hair.
3. Invest in a Quality Towel
The more you dry and rub your hair, the more friction you cause. Friction will cause hair strands to break and become frizzy, which means less friction will lead to better overall hair quality. Choose a microfiber towel to dab your hair dry, since it has proven to be gentler on hair. If you’ve tried different products and techniques to improve your quality hair care, consider changing your towel and see if it makes a difference.
4. Opt for Conditioner Over Shampoo
The whole purpose of having textured hair is the definition it provides. Shampoo doesn’t usually help in that regard, but conditioner will. Many conditioners provide your hair with the right amount of moisture you need to be able to style your hair how you want. Avoid using shampoo a few times and just use conditioner instead to see how you like the results. If you need to, you can also apply a small amount of protective hair serum to help your hair quality as well.
