Type 1 hair, also known as straight hair, lacks natural curls and is prized for its sleek appearance and easy styling. Despite its appeal, straight hair poses challenges like oiliness and potential limpness. There are three subtypes you need to know about.
1A Hair Type:
This hair type is a smooth operator; thanks to the circular shape of the hair strands, it's less likely to tangle and feels incredibly silky to the touch. Straight hair has the appearance of looking shinier, because light can reflect off the surface more easily.
1B Hair Type:
This hair type has a subtle increase in volume and body compared to Type 1A. Upon closer examination, each strand exhibits a discreet bend or wave, contributing to an overall smooth appearance. Notably, the thicker texture of Type 1B hair can lead to product buildup, potentially resulting in increased greasiness of both the hair and scalp.
1C Hair Type:
Type 1C hair is characterized by its thick and coarse texture, contributing to a predominantly straight appearance with added waviness. Notably, Type 1C tends to be more voluminous compared to Types 1A and 1B, creating the illusion of a fuller head of hair. However, the increased thickness poses challenges in controlling dryness and frizz.
Proper care for straight hair involves a delicate balance. Overwashing should be avoided to prevent excess oil production, yet extended intervals between washes are not ideal.
The recommended frequency is shampooing every 2-3 days for optimal results. During washing, it is advisable to use cooler water to lock in moisture and close cuticles, minimizing frizz caused by open cuticles exposed to humidity.
Pro-tip: A Dry shampoo can also be a great product to use when you tend to have an oily scalp. Use it between washes and any time you need freshening up.
For all you rockstars with silky straight hair, guess what? Blow dryers are like that accessory you rarely need. The finer your natural hair, the quicker it dries—talk about efficiency! So, why risk damage with a blow dry when you can let your locks air dry in all their glory? To spice things up. Toss in a lightweight serum on your damp or wet hair for that extra dose of nourishment.
As we age, it's essential to recognize the key nutrients we need more of to maintain healthy hair. Let's give your hair the nutrients it craves. Collagen, iron, and vitamin D are your hair's best friends.
Collagen: Naturally diminishes as we age, leading to thinning hair and ageing skin. Incorporating collagen-rich foods and supplements into your diet can boost the strength and elasticity of your hair and skin. Marine Collagen is often considered the best choice as it's easily absorbed and utilized by the body.
Iron: An iron deficiency, often indicated by low ferritin levels can disrupt the normal hair growth cycle, causing more hair follicles to shed prematurely, a condition known as telogen effluvium. Therefore consuming iron-rich foods can help ensure you have an adequate supply.
Vitamin D: More than just for strong bones, it's crucial for happy hair follicles. A vitamin D deficiency can disrupted the health of your hair, potentially lead to hair thinning or even hair loss. During winter months, boost your daily supplementation and don't skimp on this vitamin.
1. Scalp Massages:
Treat your hair to regular scalp massages for increased blood circulation. Be gentle; we're promoting growth, not damage.
The heightened blood flow, in turn, nourishes and supports the health of your hair, aiding in its growth and overall vitality.
2. Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner:
A volumizing shampoo and conditioner can help you take control of any flatness and nourish dry locks.
To add volume while styling, add mousse near your roots, flip hair upside down, and use a blow dryer to activate the mousse. For added definition, use a brush while blow drying and your tresses will be instantly voluminous.
3. Reduce Stress:
Consider adding stress-reduction techniques into your daily routine, such as meditation, long walks or yoga.
Prolonged stress can elevate cortisol levels, a hormone that, when imbalanced, may adversely affect hair follicles, potentially leading to hair loss.
