How to deal with different hair type?
1. Fine Hair
- Brush hair
Brushing hair can stimulate oxygen in your scalp, helping your hair maintain more body. It is recommended to use a good quality bristle brush made with natural boar bristles or flexible nylon.
- Switch Part
It is recommended to switch part regularly. A swap will help lift the hair away from the scalp increasing volume at the top of your head, after being flattened in the same direction for so many years. Lift your roots and point them in another direction via a blow-dryer. You can apply a little hair spray to keep the new style from switching back to its old ways.
- Turn Down the Heat
The less heat you use, the less opportunity for breakage, brittleness or thinning to occur. Thus, as long as you use fine hair types, you don’t have to use super high temperatures to style your hair.
Besides, when using thermal tools, you had better use a heat protectant and you can use a lower temperature to complete this job. Let hair air dry, if possible.
- Add Volume with Waves
As we know, a curly or wavy hair style will give your hair the appearance of more volume. Therefore, you can wear a curlier style to give yourself a boost.
2. Frizzy Hair
- Do Weekly Hair Masks
It is recommended to add some hydration back into your hair by deep conditioning. Or, you can use a hair treatment mask at least once a week.
- Use Right Products
Never use shampoos or hair products that contain sulfate or alcohol, for they can completely dry out your strands encouraging your hair to pull moisture from the air instead.
If you get caught in the rain, frizz can pop up. At this time, apply a little serum (avoid your roots) and immediately pull your hair into a braid or bun to smooth it out.
3. Coarse Hair
- Don’t Brush Hair
Brushing hair separates the curls, and the individual strands easily frizz up. Therefore, it is recommended to keep that brush away. If you still want to brush hair, you had better turn to a wide tooth comb or your fingers to gently comb before a shower when it’s dry as wet hair is a huge danger zone for breakage.
- Weekly Hair Treatments
Coarse hair is harder for the natural oils and nutrients from your scalp to reach the rest of your hair, so it is usually more prone to dryness and frizz. To repair and nourish back to life the parts of your hair that are lacking, you should use a weekly hair mask or treatment.
- Avoid Over-Washing
Don’t wash hair every day. Frequent washing will dry out your hair leading to more frizz.
4. Oily Hair
- Stop washing
Washing hair every day will seriously contribute to the problem of over-producing oil glands in the scalp, for you are constantly stripping them of the natural oil causing them to overcompensate for the loss. It is recommended to wash hair 2-3 times a week.
- Don’t touch hair
When you subconsciously twirl or run your fingers through your hair, the oil produced from your fingers is easily transferred to your hair.
- Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo not only soaks up excess oil in your hair within seconds but also adds volume at the roots.
