One of the biggest trends we think will be big this year is effortless hair! We predict so many posts embracing your natural texture and showcasing sleek, shiny, healthy hair. Here’s your guide to having the most manageable, most effortless hair that you can!
Using the Right Products
We know seeing those Pinterest pictures of gorgeous locks can be super daunting, but you can recreate those in no time with the right products! We will tell you what our favorite products to use are for each trendy style, and the best part of it all is you can come in and buy everything we share!
If your social media feeds are anything like ours is, we know you’ve been seeing loose, beachy waves all over the place! These are so pretty and suit everyone! As always, please start with a heat protectant. This will prolong your style while protecting your hair from heat damage; a win-win! We recommend Aquage’s Beyond Body Spray. A helpful tip when curling your hair: DON’T touch your curls until they have cooled completely! They have a better chance at keeping their shape all day. After they cool, take a wide-tooth comb or your fingers and lightly brush out the curls! Tada: perfect beachy waves every time! If you want a great visual, check this out on our Instagram page: follow us while you’re there!
Now on to everyone’s favorite- the blowout! Using the correct products is vital for this style. Ensure you are using a heat protectant; there is a lot of heat used continuously for this style, and you want to make sure you’re protected! We think Amika’s Heat Defense Serum is an easy option for you! It is also an oil, which can also be used after you are dry to help with flyaways. It’s a win-win product! A helpful tip when you are styling a blowout: dry your hair regularly until it is mostly dry. This will ensure that you have the least amount of heat damage. Volume is the goal with this style, so make sure you add a volumizing product into your line-up! Check out Color Wow’s Raise the Root Spray. It gives tons of volume as you blow-dry it in!
Natural, Textured Waves
We are so excited to see you embracing your natural texture! Natural, curly hair is so beautiful, and we have some products to share with you to get the best out of your waves. Aquage has so many options for curly hair, and we have been loving the Curl Defining Creme and the Defining Gel. These are perfect by themselves but are a fantastic combo! After wash day, dry your hair with a cotton or microfiber towel and get the moisture out, then scrunch in your favorite of the Aquage line. Using Wella’s Eimi Sugar Lift spray is a great option to refresh second-day hair; mist your hair with water and scrunch in the sugar spray!
Keeping a good routine for regular haircuts is super important! Now, we aren’t saying you need to chop your hair off every time, but a good trim every eight weeks or so is very beneficial! Pair this with a great shampoo and conditioner combo, and you’ll feel as good as new. We love Matrix’s Biolage Fiber Strong for anyone who needs a little extra protein boost, and Color Last, the perfect shampoo and conditioner for extending your vibrant color!
Another product to have in your routine is an excellent leave-in conditioner! With the cold weather here, our hair tends to get very dry. Using a product like Sexy Hair Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner can help with those dry ends. This will leave your hair feeling so sleek and shiny!
See how easy it can be to have effortless hair? We can’t wait to see how you decide to style this year! Come on in and grab any of the products we mentioned here. We would love to help you find the best product for your hair routine.
