So how do you find and choose the right products for your hair?
First of all, you have to analyze your hair type. So hair type can be straight, wavy, curly, or kinky, all of which can be thin or thick. So how do you figure out what hair type you have? Frankly, it's best to talk to your barber or to your hairstylist because they have more experience and they can tell you what kind of hair you got.
Second, once you know your hair type, decide on what style you want. Basically, that means what do you want your hair to look like. Again, it pays to talk to your stylist and look at different photos and see what you like
Three, I know I said ask your stylist but always take their advice with a grain of salt. As I mentioned before, a stylist knows your hair, they have a good comparison, they've tried different things, and they know what works for a certain type of hair and what doesn't. On the flip side, they have a serious conflict of interest simply because if you think about your haircut right, doing your haircut takes them 30, 40, or 50 minutes. Now, by selling you a product, they can make twice as much or maybe even more money just by selling that product in an additional two minutes. Therefore, stylists aren't really objective about what they're selling you. Chances are they want to sell you something that is ideal for your hair that they have right there at the store. Just be extra cautious and ask the right questions.
Four, let us talk about the different types of hair products out there. Pomade, gel, wax, styling cream, putty, clay, sea salt spray, paste, and last but not least, hair spray. So the big question is what do they do and what are they best for? Here is where the problem begins. These are not trademarked or defined terms and every brand may use them slightly differently.
Five, one of the most important things you can do as a consumer is to evaluate the ingredients of your hair products. As with pretty much anything, as a consumer, you have to be educated so you can cut through the marketing speech and make sure you get the best value product for your hair. Now you may wonder how do I do that? I have no clue about hair, where do I start making an informed decision? Honestly, the best place for information on hair products that I found is the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. Yes, that is a mouthful but guess what? This wasn't made by marketers but by scientists hence the tongue breaker name.
Now last but not least, I really urge you to experiment with different hair products. Yes, the database can really help you to narrow things down to a certain group of products but and ultimately, you still have to wear it in your hair and decide if it's something you want or if the look is just not right.
