Your Best Possible Hair: Texturizing Miami One Cowlick and Cuticle at a Time
Hair without texture is like wearing a baggy dress that has not been adjusted to flaunt your body’s assets. There are various ways in which texturizing your hair can help to elevate your hairstyle to fabulous.
Style Got Smooth
One of the ways to texturize hair is to use products to manage it better. This is especially useful if you battle with damaged, frizzy or uncontrollable hair where trying to style it feels like attempting to hold a hot pan with your bare hands!
A keratin treatment that makes hair smoother inserts the keratin protein substance into the hair’s cuticles. This gets rid of any stubborn curls or frizzes, leaving you with swishy hair that looks filled with shine, while protecting your hair against elements that can totally wreck your ’do.
Cut it out!
Texturizing can also refer to various ways of cutting hair so as to remove bulk and shape it better. A technique known as slithering can be great if you want to thin out hair that is too thick or if you want to create a bit more volume instead of dreaded bulk. Slithering thins out the hair ends so that they look smoother and healthier.
Another great texturizing cut is twist cutting. In this technique, pieces of hair are twisted and then cut with scissors, giving you hair of different lengths that have extra body and shape.
If you have wavy or curly hair and you want to change its texture, getting a straightening treatment done at a salon can come to the rescue by offering a sleeker and more polished look. Let’s face it: sometimes using a straightening iron and brush just doesn’t straighten your hair the way you want it – or for long enough. That’s when you need to reel in the professional techniques.
Chi Hair Straightening Treatment is an easy way to have your hair straightened permanently and it’s even safe to follow up with hair coloring because it’s so gentle on your hair, thanks to being ammonia-free.
Hot Tip: If your hair hangs long and flat prior to having this treatment, consider a layered cut that will give your freshly straightened hair a burst of texture.
Fake it to Make it
Extra volume in the form of hair extensions can be a quick and fun solution to providing your style with oomph and texture. You can have the extensions clipped onto your hair and then cut with your natural locks into a texturized style. Of course, they’re not permanent but can be a great solution if you want something different and they’re super for special occasions.
Gorgeous Locks for Longer
After you’ve brought stunning texture to your hair with a new haircut and/or treatment, you need to look after it between salon appointments so that it doesn’t let you down. Here are some tips to achieve salon-styled hair.
Keep heating tools to a minimum. If you use too many heating products on hair, it can damage it, leaving it brittle. Whenever you need to use a heating tool, always apply a heat protecting product first.
Go easy on spritzing and smoothing products into your hair. A small squirt of product is usually enough. You don’t want hair to be weighed down by too much, which can leave it looking flat.
Use professional shampoos. These prevent any product from building up in your hair (which, again, can leave hair looking flat or heavy), while providing fast smoothing action.
You might not realize just how beautiful and full-bodied your hair can be until you get it texturized at a Miami hair salon. From sleek hair to something more voluminous, there’s the right texture just waiting to enhance your look.
