How To Work With Your Natural Hair Texture

by 7.1K views 7.1K views  
Guilty of subjecting your tresses to heat styling tools every morning? Gotcha! We’re not denying that a woman needs to befriend hair straighteners and curlers to show off salon worthy locks but let’s face it, your natural hair texture has a charm of its own – provided you know how to work your way through it.  Well, it’s time to fall in love with your natural hair all over again!
A Sleek Affair
Though half of womanhood yearns for straight (read manageable) tresses, women who’ve been blessed with it say otherwise. Apparently, the biggest problem of silky hair is that it falls flat and doesn’t look voluminous enough. Ready to break some serious stereotypes?
Style It
  • Begin by creating a Dutch braid on either side using the hair of your crown area.
  • Once secured with elastic bands, tease them slightly to create the illusion of thicker-looking braids. 
  • Cross them at the back of your head and use bobby pins to tuck them neatly. We call it the sweetheart crown! Don’t forget the seal the deal with the Wella Professionals EIMI Perfect Setting Light Setting Lotion Spray.
Hack It
Since straight hair also tends to be super-silky, chances are that bobby pins will slide right through. Spritz a little of your hairspray on the pin and see how it behaves for an entire day! Nykaa recommends Batiste Stylist OOMPH My Locks XXL Volume Spray – Hot Pink for styling straight hair.
The Curl Boss
When a curly-haired girl refuses to leave the house, know that it’s probably because she’s freshly shampooed her tresses and doesn’t want to resemble a lioness in full public view! Be a Kangana Ranaut. Rock those curls like a one badass Goddess.
Style It
  • Use a generous amount of the Osmo Curl Spray Volumising Curl Enhancer so that your gorgeous curls are even more defined.
  • Gather all your hair and tuck it in a loose bun at the nape of your neck. Pull out a few strands from here and there (fringe benefits, you see) and you’re done! 
Hack It
Instead of using the regular hairbrush, consider the wide-tooth hair comb as your BFF for life. Also, work your way from the ends to your roots instead of the other way around. Nykaa recommends Basicare Detangling Comb for styling curly hair.
In Love With Waves
Wavy-haired women are usually stressed because neither can they call their mane poker straight nor completely curly. Since they usually find themselves in hairstyling dilemmas, here’s some much-needed tress talk to wear those waves without a hint of hesitation.
Style It
Hack It
As per the Hair Bible, wavy = frizzy. Most women finish half of a can of hairspray in a single go just to tame flyaways and end up with hair that’s as hard as a helmet. We’re rooting for the Streax PRO Hair Serum Vita Glossfor styling your hair. Wanna switch sides?
