Tips for Taking Care of Your Naturally Textured Hair

Maintaining naturally textured hair can feel like a daily challenge, leaving many people to throw their hands in the air. But there are some simple approaches and products that can help. Here are a few:

Moisturize
To get the most manageability, use products that moisturize and hydrate. A good place to start is Redken Wind Up Reactivating Spray. You’ll notice right away that it softens and defines.

Or, Moisturize Even More
If you currently use products that moisturize, but feel they haven't been working, they may not be intense enough for your needs. Try Redken All Soft Heavy Cream. It features Argan oil which provides intense softness.

Minimize the Frizz
Controlling frizz is another frustrating challenge of naturally textured hair. Minimizing frizz with anti-humidity serums, elixirs, and creams should work wonderfully with your well-hydrated hair. Some brands and products to check out include DESIGNLINE Texture Balance Infusing Oil or Biolage Smoothproof Serum.

Keep it Cool
Another tactic to keep in mind is trying to minimize the amount of hot styling you do. The more you use hot curling and flat irons, the more stress you’re going to put on your hair. This can lead to breakage and frizziness.

And if you do heat style, try a heat protectant. Redken Smooth Lock Heat Glide Spray can help protect fragile strands for damage caused by heat styling.

Keep it Trimmed
Lastly, be sure to get regularly scheduled haircuts and trims. Keeping the ends of your hair healthy is a good step in managing and controlling your beautiful texture.
