Poker-straight hair has a separate fan base. And while we do agree with the fact that poker-straight hair looks chic, sleek, and classy, people born with such hair type often find it difficult to make their hair look voluminous or slightly textured. Not only poker-straight hair falls flat on the head, but it also ends up making the face look wider than it is. If this is a kind of problem you always struggle with, then you have stumbled upon the right place. An easy way to keep your straight hair from falling flat is by adding some texture to your locks. Now you must be wondering how you can possibly add enough texture and dimension to your tresses to make them look anything but flat, we have an answer for that too. There are not just one but five different ways to add texture to your fine, straight hair.
Ahead, we have put together a list of some easy-peasy ways to add texture to your straight hair.
Use a sea-salt texture spray
There are a lot of hair products in the market that claims to add texture and dimension to fine hair. While some products certainly help deliver the desired results, most of them turn out to be a great disappointment. If you always had failures with such hair products, you certainly won’t be disappointed with a sea-salt texture spray. This underrated hair product deserves more attention than it gets, it can turn out to be a great investment, you just need to know how to use it correctly. If you want to add some beach waves to your hair without using heat, you can use a sea-salt texture spray to do the trick. If you are working with dry hair, make sure to damp your hair a bit. Take your sea salt spray and apply it throughout your mane, including your roots and tips. Now scrunch the ends of your hair, and that’s how you get long-lasting beach waves.
Try a hair pomade
A hair pomade is pretty similar to sea salt spray, the key difference between the two of them is the latter one has a tad bit more matte finish. Take a coin-sized amount of the product into your palms and before applying it directly on your hair, make sure to rub it between your palms to warm it up a bit. In this case, you need to skip applying the product to your roots, just stick to applying it to the mid-length and tips of your hair. After that, make sure to scrunch your hair to add some texture and movement to your mane.
Befriend dry shampoo
There’s a reason why people have been raving about dry shampoo. This product is more or less a life-savior or game-changer that always comes to our easy rescue whenever needed. While the primary role of this product is to absorb excess oil from the scalp and refresh the strands, it can do a lot more than that, such as adding texture to your hair. Start by flipping your hair in the front and then apply dry shampoo throughout your mane, including your scalp. Don’t forget to scrunch the ends of your hair.
Use a thickening product
Every girl with thin and brittle hair could use a thickening hair spray in her vanity. This might turn out to be a game-changing product for you. Apply a generous amount of thickening spray all over your hair and make sure to scrunch the ends. After ensuring that your hair is about 60-70% dry, you can point your hair dryer at the roots. This will help add some lift to otherwise flat hair.
Give braiding a shot
If you don’t want to use any of the above-mentioned hair products, then you can give braiding a try. Braiding is an easy and heatless way to add some texture to your fine hair. Start by dividing your hair into four sections and then braid each section separately. You can either choose to keep your hair braided for some hours or overnight. This trick will help add oodles of volume and texture to your tresses.
