Different Hair Types: How To Care For Your Hair


There is a wealth of information on hair care on the internet. Everyone has a different hair type and not all hair care advice is one-size-fits-all.

Knowing your hair type and their specific hair care tips can prove to be especially helpful and save yourself plenty of frustration.  

1. Straight Hair

Whether you have long or short hair, straight hair is always the most prone to oiliness. This is because the natural sebum produced by the scalp easily coats the hair shaft without any curls stopping it.

For clarifying purposes, WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is perfect as it dissolves any buildup and excess oils without drying out your scalp!

Common hair issues for straight hair are oiliness, frizz, and dullness.

If your strands are thin and fine, you want to avoid heat tools to prevent any breakage. For thicker strands, look out for frizz and pesky flyaways. You can consider using a hydrating hair oil that doesn't weigh your hair down like the WOW Onion Black Seed Hair Oil.

2. Wavy Hair

Wavy hair places you somewhere between curly and straight hair types. Your strands are usually thicker than straighter hair types.

Many people love wavy hair but little do they know that wavy hair is almosy always messy by default.

Humidity is your greatest enemy and you will always have to style your hair in some way before being able to go out. Most of your time is spent preventing frizz and emphasizing your curls.

The key to maintaining gorgeous and bouncy curls is having enough moisture. We recommend getting the WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Mist Tonic for quick hydration at any time of the day whenever you need some definition and shine on your curls.

3. Curly/Kinky Hair

Firstly you have the looser ringlets and spirals. It’s easier to achieve a shiny look with this hair type but proper hair care is needed to prevent damage to the cuticles.

And then you have the kinky hair type with tighter coils. These hair types are characterized by wiry strands with a much coarser texture.

Generally, curlier hair types are most vulnerable to damage so you want to avoid shampooing your hair too often. This hair type calls for a gentle approach as aggressively brushing or drying your hair can easily cause breakage and frizz.

We recommend the WOW Coconut & Avocado Natural Hair Conditioner that deeply nourishes your strands, promoting follicle strength, sheen, and overall hair health. Pair it with our easy-to-use WOW Stimulating Scalp Massager for the perfect detangling combo.
