Each person has their own unique style, which can largely be dictated by the traits they were born with — from the type of texture, hair color or wave pattern to the shape of your eyebrows. Now, more than ever, clients are looking for the best ways to embrace and enhance the unique characteristics they’re born with. While everyone loves a smooth blowout now and again, the number one trend we’re seeing season after season is the return to natural texture patterns. Read on to see a few top tips and product picks to enhance waves, curls, and coils!
Re-evaluate Your Routine
If you’ve mostly been heat-styling your hair, you could be dealing with underlying damage and moisture loss. When it comes to embracing your natural texture pattern, the health of your hair plays a large role in the outcome. Healthier hair is shinier and more moisturized and therefore is less prone to frizz. To improve the health of your hair, a consistent cleansing and moisturizing routine, followed by leave-ins and treatments can lead to a more defined texture pattern.
