Similar to the minimalistic movements we’re seeing all around the globe, learning to love your natural hair is in. Now, you just need to learn how to style it! If you’ve been accustomed to the same wash, rinse, blow-dry repeat, you might need a refresher on how to enhance your natural texture. From air-drying to diffuse-drying, this is exactly how to embrace your natural texture pattern with a brand-new routine.
How to Embrace Your Natural Texture Pattern
We love a smooth blow dry just as much as the next person, but in between blow-drying, curling, and straightening your hair — it’s great to give your hair a break. By cutting down on heat styling you’ll notice that your curls will spring back to life, look less frizzy, and be more manageable!
If and When You Heat Style
The first step in embracing your natural texture pattern always begins with improving the health of your hair. You can still blow-dry and heat style occasionally, but guarding your hair with proper heat protection is essential. For the days when you’re wearing a smooth style, always prep hair with BLOW.DRY WASH + RINSE and follow with HEATED.DEFENSE plus one of the EVERs.
Improve the Health of Your Hair Between Styling
Next, between styling days, start working on the health of your hair from the inside out. Invest in bond-building treatments like EVERLASTING.COLOUR TREATMENT of LEAVE-IN to increase the strength of your hair from the inside out, and reach for luxurious masques or leave-in treatments to add moisture, nourishment and shine.
The Best Styling Products to Enhance Natural Texture Patterns
Once you’ve improved the strength and condition of your hair, start to look for styling products that enhance your texture pattern with the same moisturising and nourishing qualities you would look for when heat styling. For this, KILLER.CURLS WASH and RINSE are a must. This shampoo and conditioner uses the power of fatty acids from Oat Milk to transform any curl pattern. You’ll notice your texture is more moisturised and your curls are more refined thanks to a smooth cuticle and enhanced shine.
Next, you’ll want to pick a product that enhances your texture pattern while you air-dry. KILLER.TWIRLS is a welcome addition to any hair routine to define your hair while hydrating and creating a frizz-free protected finish. Or, if you still want to add heat with a diffuser attachment, HEATED.DEFENSE + KILLER.CURLS, KILLER.WAVES or MOTION.LOTION can all be layered before touching up with EASY.RIDER to define your style.
