Understanding Your Natural Texture

Understanding your natural hair texture can make your life easier. How to style it, how much product to use on it, and understanding how to work with it will give you the confidence and ease you need to help it look its best. Though all these types of hair vary, all can benefit from being healthier. When they are healthier, they're easier to manage and more resilient to what is thrown at them. OLAPLEX can help your hair no matter its texture; because every hair type can benefit from being healthier. 


Your journey to understanding your hair begins from the inside. You can have fine curly hair and thick straight hair, just as you can have coarse, curly hair. It can all seem a tad convoluted, so understanding each's qualities and concerns can better narrow the needs for your hair. 


Fine to Medium Hair


Your hair is luxuriously soft, silky, and prone to tangling and breakage. It's easy to blow out and straighten. When styling, it's important to apply products that help with volume, as due to the structure of fine hair types, it tends to go flat. For fine to medium hair textures, less product is more! Start with pea-sized amounts, then work your way up (if needed) to avoid build-up and greasiness. 


Coarse Hair


Va va voom! Volume for days is what coarse hair is all about. It holds a style easily, is less prone to breakage, and tends to go dryer than other textures. Coarse hair also tends to become frizzier than fine to medium hair textures. This hair type can handle more products in the hair without the risk of it weighing down easily. 


Straight Hair 


Straight hair has a reputation for being shiny, as its texture reflects light easier than curly hair types. If you have straight hair, you may know it doesn't hold a style very well and almost always needs volume. Its manageability is a plus, and with the help of styling products, you can style it to just about any look! 


Curly Hair


Did you know each fiber of curly hair has its curl pattern? Curly hair can be fine, medium, or coarse. No two heads are alike! This texture is voluminous and full but also tends to frizz easily. Curly hair is prone to dryness, so be sure to keep it hydrated. When styled, it holds a style incredibly well! There are many curly hair types such as wavy, curly, and coily––getting to know these and which you fall under can better help address your curly hairs needs!
