When deciding a hair routine, you first have to determine you hair type. Hair texture is an important part of determining how your hair is cut, how you wash it and even what types of gel or mousse you need to use.
If you have fine hair, cutting in long angled layers around your face, leaving the rest at shoulder length. Color will add an appearance of volume, but if you aren’t a fan of hair coloring, you can try highlighting the top layers. You may have to wash your hair a couple of times a day, especially in the summer heat. Use a deep cleaning shampoo to get out any oils that might weigh your hair down and make it flat. If your hair is dry, you can use a gloss to add moisture to the ends. Try a protein-based volumizer and work it into the base of the scalp. Pin you hair about 2” from the hairline and let it dry. This will make you look like you have extra volume and height on top.
Wavy hair must have layers. Length isn’t as important. Layers keep the hair from getting to big. Shampoo only once a day and use a silicone based gloss or gel or mousse instead of an alcohol base product. These alcohol base products tend to dry out your hair. You can pin it up in the day and let it loose at night.
A curly hairstyle will warrant long hair, but ask for a blunt cut to keep you hair from getting too big. Wash your hair every couple of days, and use a heavy conditioner and don’t rinse it out too completely. You’ll need the extra moisture. Same goes with using alcohol based mousse and gels. Use silicone-based products to keep you hair from drying out.
