When it comes to your hair care routine, do you take your hair type into consideration? A good product can get you pretty far, but embracing your hair type is the real answer to all your hair maintenance problems. By creating a routine that matches your type, you can control how easy—or difficult—your morning routine is. Not sure how to do that? We can help! Keep reading to find out how to embrace your natural hair texture for your next beauty look, that way you’ll be able to say you woke up like this.
HOW TO EMBRACE NATURALLY CURLY HAIR
If you have naturally curly locks, you likely already know that managing your hair texture can be a challenge. But with the right hair care routine and the right hair styling products, you’ll have a gorgeously-tamed mane of curls in no time!
Step #1: Wash your hair
For you, using a shampoo and conditioner that’s specifically formulated for curly hair will be important. In fact, we’d argue the right hair care system is more than half the battle! If you aren’t using a system that fits the bill, swap out your current products for the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Conditioner.
Step #2: Sculpt your curls
A hair styling gel, mousse, or cream will be your best friend when it comes to embracing curly hair. Consider the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel, L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, or L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Curve It Curl Taming Cream. Pick whichever type of styling product you prefer (or use them all on different days) and apply as directed for perfect curls.
HOW TO EMBRACE NATURALLY STRAIGHT HAIR
If you have naturally straight hair, embracing your natural texture is all about keeping your mane smooth and frizz-free.
Step #1: Wash your mane
For humidity and long-lasting frizz control, use an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner to wash your locks. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner.
Step #2: Make it sleek
Along with an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner, you’ll want to invest in other anti-frizz hair products, like a hair serum or cream. We’re fans of the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum and L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream, as these products can be helpful when trying to achieve a smoother style.
Editor’s note: Another way to embrace your natural hair texture is to use your flat iron to touch up any areas that aren’t perfectly straight. If you go this route, make sure you apply heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, first!
HOW TO EMBRACE NATURALLY WAVY HAIR
For wavy locks, you’ll want to use products that will keep your hair smooth, hydrated, and voluminous. Who doesn’t love full, bouncy waves?
Step #1: Wash your locks
As with any hair care routine, start by washing your hair. For a shampoo and conditioner that will give your mane body and fullness, use the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner.
Step #2: Define your waves
Spritz towel-dried hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to further define the shape and texture of your wavy locks. Then, spray the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist throughout to create even more texture and volume, ensuring the end result is a full-bodied head of hair.
Step #3: Amp up the volume
Not quite voluminous enough for you? Finish off this look by spraying your roots with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray for a last-minute dose of lift.
