How To Become Happy With The Hair You Have

Of all the women in the world, 89% of women hate their hair. This has actually gone up. There are over 600 hair products out there, which can lead to a lot of confusion. A product may be great, but if you do not know how to use it, then it isn't a great product for you. Improper use of products can lead to a bigger styling mess then you need. Try some of these great hair styling products that are great for YOUR hair.

Fine & Straight
The problem with fine hair is that it lays flat. You need to add volume but not weight so it is hard to find products that do not weigh it down. To give the appearance of thicker hair, use a thickening shampoo. Follow with a thickening conditioner but only apply on the ends of your hair. When styling use light weight products, and do not use frizz fighting products, all it does is hold the hair down. Use products without silicone, and use about half the amount you plan on using. Add more if necessary. To calm fly aways after styling, use a light hold hair spray.

Thick & Straight
The number one rule is to completely dry your hair. If you do not dry your entire hair, then it will puff up and frizz in the sections that were still damp. Before styling your hair apply a styling oil then follow with a styling cream, but apply more in the back and less in the front so it does not weigh the front down. After your hair is 100% dry, end with a shine spray so your hair doesn't look dull. Do not use volumizers, more volume is not needed for your hair.

Kinky & Coiled
Kinky and coiled hair is one of the hardest to style. Brushing it causes frizz, and heat tools remove moisture. Your best option is to air dry your hair whenever possible. After you condition your hair, rinse out about 50% off the conditioner so your curls stay shiny and smooth. Avoid sprays because they are harder to evenly distribute threw your hair. Your hair is more prone to breakage, so be careful and use moisturizing products whenever necessary.

Avoid frizz fighting shampoo's and conditioners. They are loaded wih silicones and weigh your hair down. To style use sprays because they are light weight and won't ruin your waves. Avoid any gel, or straightening creams. They leave your hair heavy and crunchy. Once you hair your hair in place, let it dry and do not touch it. Touching it causes frizz. Once it is dry add a styling oil . 

Curly hair has to battle frizz and lack of moisture. Start by using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. If you have finer, curly hair use a lighter weight moisture conditioner because to much moisture can weigh down your curls. Do not wash your hair every day, and on the days you do not wash it, get your hair wet to refresh your curls. All the products you use, should work great with water. Use a curl enhancer to define your curls, and a styling oil and let your hair air dry.

Try out these products out and get the best results for your hair.  Each hair type is different, so figure out which hair type is your's and how to take care of it. I hope you love your hair.
