Taking the hair texture plunge
February 10, 2014, 2:59 pm

Texture can add instant body, bounce, and give your hair a healthy look; here are some more reasons why you should think about taking a texture plunge.

Can completely change your look: Regardless of your hair type, a textured haircut will add movement to your hair. You can start with straight hair, end with curly hair and have everything in between.

Add body and bounce:  If you have straight or fine hair, texturizing products and tools can help you achieve the body and bounce you desire. Prep your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, then use various sizes of curling irons. These can help you create a multitude of textured styles.

Makes a hairstyle look more modern: A fabulous texturized haircut can give you a more contemporary look. For more volume, use hot rollers, and for a simpler, loose wave, a flat iron can create that carefree, beach look.  For especially fine hair, go for hot rollers or a small-barrel curling iron with a setting spray to seal the look and protect it from the heat. To add volume with the blow dryer, flip your head upside down and brush in the opposite direction of hair growth.

Removes bulk and weight from hair:  Without texture in your hair, it can get weighted down with too much bulk, making it appear heavy and devoid of interest. Adding texture to longer hair can be more time consuming, so a great haircut with layers or textured ends will help to naturally add volume and movement.

Gives hair a more youthful look: Adding texture and movement to your hair will give you a more youthful look overall. If your hair is naturally straight, adding texture will create volume and give a softer, youthful, and more feminine look to your hair. Bouncy or textured hair also makes you feel confident and energized.

Get the right haircut:  Deciding what cut will work for your hair type can be confusing. The easiest texture and density to work with, is medium texture with medium density. You can have the most versatility and you can wear it at different lengths. If you don’t fall in the middle, you should check what the pros recommend for your particular hair type.
