Managing Your Hair

Article by Chris Waage

Different hair types require a different treatment to get a successful result. Each hair type entails it?s own unique approach. Hair stylists are experts at their craft because they know how to deal with each hair type. Everyone is different and so is the hair on his or her head. There are a few basic rules to live by whether your hair is curly, straight or wavy. Below you find some tips on how to work with what you have.

Curly Hair:For those out there that have naturally beautiful curly hair, there are a few things that may help manage your sexy tresses. Dryness could be an issue, so it?s recommended to use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair. This will give your hair the needed moisture that it needs. Depending on the length of your hair and dryness, applying a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner 3-4 times a week may reduce the dreaded dryness that curly hair tends to get.

The dryness treatment doesn?t stop there, after washing your curly hair, it?s important to just gently blot your hair dry with a soft and very absorbent towel. The trick is to leave enough moisture on your hair so that when you apply a silicone-based shine serum to your curls, the serum will be able to penetrate into the strands of your hair. Depending on the thickness of your hair, apply 4 to 6 drops (the thicker your hair, the more you can use). After you?ve applied the serum, gently run your fingers through your hair to detangle any knots you may have and then you can allow it to air dry.

Wavy Hair:Now, your hair isn?t quite curly and it?s definitely not straight, so you must be one of the lucky few that?d be considered to have wavy hair. It?s suggested to use a shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner when washing your wavy tresses. These aren?t leave in shampoos and conditioners, so remember to thoroughly rinse your hair out after washing.

While your hair is sill wet, use a wide-tooth comb to smooth and separate your hair. After your hair is as smooth as can be, apply a silicone-based shine-enhancing spray. It?s best to spritz from the ends of your hair to the root.

To dry and seal in the silicon-based shine-enhancer, use a blow dryer with a tapered nozzle. This will direct the airflow to the hair down the shaft, leaving you with naturally beautiful wavy hair.

Straight Hair:Last but not least, we have the straight haired people out there. You are the envy of many. The kind of hair that allows you to just get up and go. As convenient as that may sound, there?re a few drawbacks to having pin straight hair that need to be addressed.

With having straight hair, your tresses tend to be flat against your head. This ultimately leads to excessive natural grease that can take away from the pizzazz of your hair. One of the ways to defeat this natural occurrence is to use a deep-cleaning shampoo as often as necessary. They say we shouldn?t wash our hair everyday, but it all depends on the condition of our strands. Using a deep-cleansing shampoo on your oily days is highly suggested.To prevent any oil build-up, you should also get in the habit of applying a clarifying gel treatment to the roots of your hair on a weekly basis.Now depending on the amount of time you have, you could either let your hair air dry, which I know a lot of us do or you could blow your hair dry.If you have the time to blow-dry then you could take a few more minutes and use a flatiron to give your hair that extra sexy sleekness.

Those of us with straight hair wish we had some curls and those with curls wish we had straight hair. Be grateful you even have hair! Some of us could care less, any hair will do! We all know that are hair plays a major role in our individual style, so get creative and just be you.
