There are LOTS of hair products out there, but guess what? Not all of them are created equal. Why? Because, surprise! Not everyone has the same kind of hair. It isn’t just about what products you use, but also what order you apply them too! So which ones are right for you? We’re breaking it down for you below!
Why does the order of hair products matter?
Different hair products do different things. You wouldn’t spritz your hair with hairspray right before you’re about to straighten, would you? Your first products should help your condition and style your hair, and the very last product you use should be a sealant to set the whole thing. In other words, a product like hairspray should be the LAST thing you use, never the first.
If you DO, however, choose to use a hairspray first PLEASE use a heat protectant before that. Spritzing hairspray before you use your curling tool may help your curls stay in longer, but that ALWAYS, always, always comes with a heavy price.
What hair products are right for your hair type
Just like different types of people speak a different language, different types of hair need different kinds of love. Here are the products—and order—best suited for your hair type.
Your hair texture is the middle child between straight and curly, but you do style have some texture in your hair. With this kind of mildly voluminous hair texture you may run the risk of combatting frizz. Tame your strands before you style by adding a styling cream. Make sure the one you use is a lightweight formula that provides your locks with intense nourishment.
