Natural hair styles in Dallas are often the hardest to achieve. Want to know what separates the good and bad? The use of products. Which product best suits you, how much you use, and when you use it are crucial to any hair style. 2010 is proving to be the year that many girls are setting their flat irons aside. Having locks with body and a little curl is an easy, flirtatious way to glam up your look with ease.
First and foremost, let’s talk about products. Almost everyone needs to be using some kind of product to assist with their style. If you haven’t already heard about Moroccan Oil, it’s the perfect way to tame frizz, while adding the moisture your hair needs, and protecting it from all of the hot tools we use on a daily basis. (Blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons, hot rollers, etc.) Also, some kind of mousse, gel, or hair lotion will always help lock in the style you’re trying to achieve. You never want to use too much, as we don’t want this to look forced. A good tip is to always start small, and if you feel like you need more you can continuously add until the hair is saturated.
If you’re looking to have really tamed hair with a slight curl at the end, showing off your gorgeous long layers, a round brush will be your best friend. I suggest you use a dime size amount of Moroccan Oil, and a little bit of mousse to hold your style. When your hair gets almost completely dry but still has a little moisture in it, start round brushing your hair. It helps to clip your hair up and isolate each section you’re drying. When you’re drying your hair with the round brush, brush the hair straight up – perpendicular – to your head while turning the brush away from your face.
To lock your style, use a light hairspray that doesn’t make the hair look stiff, and allows it to still have movement. A great hairspray that supports this look is the Aquage Finishing Spray. You can also use this hairspray to tame flyaways. Holding the hairspray about 10 inches from your hair, lightly spray it and use a boars bristle brush to lock those loose locks into place.
