Brown Hair Texture Types

More and more people are seeking out beachy texture for straight hair or to enhance the natural wave or curl they have. Here are some ideas to help your texture shine.

  • Air Dry

    Thoroughly apply product to your hair, and twist or scrunch and allow it to air dry to see your natural texture come to life. A great product to use is the curl enhancer and a hold product like phomollient. Once your hair is completely dry, apply a finishing product like anti humectant and gently break up the pattern of your twists to reveal an effortless style.

  • Diffuse

    If your hair has a natural texture, you want to use a diffuser when you blow dry along with curl enhancing products. A great diffuser to try is YS Park’s. Simply apply your favorite curl enhancing products, and a little heat protectant, and use the diffuser to speed up the drying process.

  • Twist and Diffuse

    This is the method you’ll see used most often in the salon for enhancing texture. You can sit under a dryer and allow your twisted tresses to slowly dry or have the diffuser do the work. By combining the two previous approaches you get a soft textured style that even the most stubborn curls shine through. The key to this is to twist and then allow the hair to dry without further disruption. It’s tempting, but don’t touch the twisted strands or you’ll find your hair will get frizzy!

  • Thickening Tonic

    Here’s a fun fact: your thickening tonic doesn’t always have to be blow dried to activate its benefits. Thickening tonic works well when the product is blow dried into the hair and the amla fruit extract forms a layer on the hair strand that makes your hair appear physically thicker. That’s what makes your hair look so luxurious and full, but you can also spray it in and allow it to air dry to give a beachy texture. Enhancing your hair with thickening tonic is a great idea in conjunction with a hold product like phomollient which has honey in it, so the hold doesn’t need any heat styling to be activated.

  • Volumizing Tonic

    It’s not just a root boost. Try applying volumizing tonic in a light but thorough mist over all of your hair after you spray at the roots. This will give your hair memory and, when you blow dry at home, you’ll be able to add more movement and curl to your style. This is another tip that’s great in conjunction with your favorite hold product.
