Real Hair Solutions for Multi Textured Hair

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

Do you have an area in your hairstyle that doesn’t seem to go with the rest of your hair? Does it seem as if part of your hair doesn’t belong with the rest? If so, you may have Multi-textured hair.

Multi-textured hair is having straight hair with one strand that insists on waving or curly hair that has straight areas, or very thick hair beside thin hair, etc. . If you are blessed with this combination hair, be assured that you are not alone. You may have had the experience of having a hairdresser style it to perfection only to find that it is impossible for you to style at home. This type of hair will always be difficult but with patience and the correct products and styling aids and with patience you will be able to control it. Check out the case study below.

Let me tell you about one of the most challenging of my clients.

Alice’s naturally curly hair is of very uneven texture. The crown area is very curly with a strong tendency toward frizziness. It is also very thick in this area. The bang area is slightly less curly while the hair at the sides is almost straight, fine and somewhat thinner. The nape section is yet anther texture with medium to light curl and medium thickness.
Because of the uneven curl and the frizziness of the crown, Alice prefers not to wear it curly and would most like a smooth, bob, with some piecey layers.

As always, I start with a shampoo formulated for the hardest to control sections. In this case I choose a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to help prevent frizziness. I apply the conditioner to the top and crown only, rinse well and towel dry.

Next I apply Artec Kiwi blow silk to the top and crown for added shine and frizz control. Over this I use Matrix Sleek Look Lite Styling Crème to further help with smoothing and to lock out humidity.

Moving on to the sides and the nape area, I use Artec’s Control Gel to build body and to make the hair look thicker, improving the balance of the hair style.

To blow dry the top and crown, I use a large round brush with lots of bristles to smooth out the curl. A vent brush and my fingers work well on the sides and nape to build body while it is being blown dry.

I follow up with a narrow flat iron, pulling it from the root to the ends to remove excess fluff from the top, Often a curling iron is needed to add body and curl to the back and sides.

I add the finishing touches with a little pomade or hair wax to separate some strands for a piecey look and finish with Sleek Look Water-free Lock Down hair spray to lock out humidity.
So in summation, take heart, those of you with Multi-texture hair! Simply treat each individual texture according to its own needs and experiment with products until you find the ones that work best for you.

Beautiful hair begins with choosing the right shampoo and conditioner.
