Have you ever heard tons of hype surrounding a certain hair product and found yourself rushing to the store to buy some…only to use it and find out it does not even work for your hair? Everyone is born with unique hair, so it is impossible for one product to work perfectly for every person who tries it. The key to having great hair, is knowing which products work best for the type of hair you have.
To make it easy, I have described everything in which the different types of hair need in order to look and feel their best. I have also given specific products, which have proven to work for people with similar hair. All of the products can be purchased at your local Beauty Brands or on BeautyBrands.com and all of the shampoos and conditioners mentioned are part of their annual liter sale, happening now!
Curly hair tends to be more susceptible to damage from certain harsh chemicals in normal shampoos and conditioners, resulting in over-drying and frizziness. Buying sulfate-free products is the best way to protect your curly hair from this type of damage as they are more gentle and therefore, suitable for fragile curls.
Frequent conditioning is another key element for curly hair because the natural oils from the scalp have a harder time reaching the ends of curly hair than they do with straight hair. This leaves the ends of curly hair looking especially dry and unhealthy. Using a deep moisturizing conditioner as well as a leave-in conditioner will prevent this and give you beautifully hydrated and healthy curls from root to tip.

The biggest concern for people who have straight hair is, their hair seems to fall flat and/or has trouble holding any style to it. The best way to combat these issues is by purchasing products that will add texture and volume to the hair. Volumizing shampoos and conditioners will help give a natural boost to the roots so the hair will not lay flat around the face. Texturizing sprays and powders will add enough texture to straight hair to ensure your desired style will last much longer.
