If you have never used texturizing products on your hair, you should try some. You might think that it isn’t necessary to have another product to put on your hair, but texturizers can work wonders.
A good texturizer adds body and volume, improves hair texture, and makes it easier to give up heated hair tools. It keeps hair damage to a minimum and if you use extensions to add volume, replacing them with a good texturizing product will save you money and reduce the problem of breakage.
If you have naturally wavy hair, a salt spray texturizer could be perfect for your hair. These are very gentle and they do not change the texture as much as some others. If your hair is straight and you want some waves, you can use the salt spray on wet hair and braid it in two sections before letting it dry naturally. When you take the braids out, you will have soft waves.
If you need something that will keep your hair in place, a texturizing gel or pomade will do the job. Pomade can make a pixie hairstyle look windswept. Gels tame curls and set them in place. You can get a pomade that is specifically made for defining natural curls.
Mousse used to be used to add volume, or make hair look bigger, but the mousses of today add texturizing ingredients. These are generally less expensive than other types of texturizers. A mousse that thickens adds texture to fine hair. If your hair is curly, try applying the mousse to hair when it is wet. This can give your hair some texture without making it feel stiff. Be sure not to over do it with mousse as it can make your hair feel crunchy, especially if you use it on dry hair.
