We know that styling hair can be a bit frustrating….even stressful for so many women. We’re right there with you, by the way. Really understanding your hair and the best tips to follow are crucial to helping you to be able to style your hair in the way that you want for yourself. Since we all have different hair types and textures, what works for one person may not work for you. We think that’s one of the fun things about the world we live in, all the diversity allows us all to be unique. We decided to share some of our favorite advice for styling coarse hair, for the ladies with coarse hair to try out for themselves.
Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Often
You may have, or may not have, heard that washing your hair daily has been found to NOT be so good on anyone’s hair. This is especially true for the ladies that have coarse hair. Why? Well washing your hair too often can strip your hair of its natural oils, causing it to be much more dry than you’d like. Experts suggest that those with coarse hair shouldn’t wash their hair any more than 2-3 times a week to keep their hair healthy, happy and much easier to manage. Make use of products like dry shampoos to get you through between washes.
Use a Hair Treatment
It’s said that many ladies with coarse hair can find that their hair becomes a bit more dry than they’d like. Dry hair can be difficult to style and really work with because it’s, well…dry. So instead of just dealing with dry hair, experts suggest that coarse hair ladies should make it a point to enlist in a hair treatment every week to give their hair the extra boost of moisture and hydration it’s craving. You’ll want to look for a hair treatment/mask that’s designed to specifically add moisture and hydration to the hair. Applying it to your hair and scalp weekly can help your hair be much easier to work with.
Keep Up with Trims
Getting your hair cut can definitely feel like a task, but when you have coarse hair it’s important to make sure you’re keeping up with hair cuts and trims to keep your hair healthy, happy and more manageable. It’s suggested to get at least a trim every 6-8 weeks for the best results. Of course, we can’t forget to mention the importance of having a good hair stylist do all your cuts and trims. You’ll want someone who understands your hair’s type and is knowledgeable in how to cut your hair so that it’s easier to manage and style.
Use Quality Products
This goes for any hair type, but we had to be sure to mention it. Since our hair’s health plays such a huge role in how we can style it – it’s important to make sure that you’re using quality hair care products. This means using shampoos and conditioners, too, that are high quality and designed to work with your hair’s type.
