5. Use the correct products.
If you have the right products designed for your particular texture, then it can decrease your styling time a great deal. If you have the wrong ones, they can add time because you’ll most likely be fighting against the product instead of having it work for you.
For example, if you’re trying to get volume, you need to start with a mousse or root boost or another product which is designed to create volume. If you have tons of hair and you’re trying to make it sleeker, using a mousse is not going to help. Now you’ll be fighting against your hair and your product too, creating more work.
People who have really curly hair need to have a great styling product that can keep their curls bundled together so they can scrunch in the product and air dry when they get out of the shower. If it’s a second day for them, there are some fantastic “refresh your curl” type sprays that will put their curl pattern back in place. Just twist those curls around your finger to put back in place and you can be on your way.
The key is, no matter what style you’re trying to wear, talk to your stylist about what product options would work best for you so you can start getting your products to work for you rather than against you.
