If you want to identify the texture of your hair, then you have come to the right place. There are several steps you need to take in doing so. These steps will make hair care less complicated for you. You might even be surprised to find that learning how to care for your hair is as easy as checking your shampoo bottle for the proper ingredients. Here are the steps:
Choose the right Shampoo
Choose your hair care shampoo according to the type of your hair. There are two kinds of hair-shampoo: natural and chemical. The natural shampoo contains herbs and botanicals that help in the growth of the hair and lessen the effects of dirt and oil. Chemical-based shampoos, on the other hand, use chemicals that work hard in removing dirt and oil, while preventing the growth of new hair. A texture management system is important to check the texture of your hair. This type of shampoo should be avoided at all costs by people who have curly or frizzy hair.
The texture of your hair roots
Check the shade and texture of your hair’s roots. Usually, the texture of the roots will reflect the texture of the hair. If you have a lot of body in your hair, then the roots of your hair will look silky whereas if you have a little bit of waviness, your hair’s roots will appear coarse. To determine the texture of your hair’s roots, brush your hair with your fingers until you can get a smooth feeling on your fingers and rub your thumb on the roots of your Hair
Choose the right Conditioner
Look for an appropriate conditioner. Some conditioners, called conditioners, will add shine to your hair; others, called moisturizers, will moisturize your hair’s cuticle, which is the portion of the hair that separates the hair’s shaft from its roots. Conditioners are often used, to reduce the effect of hair breakage. However, a conditioner’s best use is to moisturize the cuticle to keep it healthy and prevent further hair breakage. If you are looking for a shampoo that can help in this regard, look for shampoos that contain ingredients that prevent breakage like shea butter or vitamin E.
Massage your hair gently
Massage your hair gently using light strokes. If you feel that the texture of your hair is too rough, then massage some oil on your palm.
Use your finger to massage your scalp gently. When your scalp is properly lubricated, the hair shaft will smoothly glide across your scalp. However, when your scalp is too dry, your hair’s texture will tend to become rough and curly. To address this, you may need to apply conditioner frequently.
Use a towel
Use the towel to massage your hair. The towel will not only add lubrication to your hair but will also lift the hair from your scalp. If you have curly hair, this is especially important as your curls can become frizzy easily. You can experiment by drying your hair in a towel and then rubbing your hair with your fingers to identify texture at the root. For straight hair, the process would be exactly the opposite. Just take a dry towel and massage your hair thoroughly until you get the right texture.
Choosing the right shampoo for the texture of your hair is essential if you want to avoid dandruff, dryness, and frizziness. If you have curly hair then choose a mild shampoo for texture as the texture of curly hair is very sensitive and the cuticle of curly hair is very fragile and easily damaged. Always remember that healthy hair needs a nourishing shampoo to keep the cuticle intact.
