Thick & coarse
Wash and Condition: Marc Anthony Moisture Gloss Brilliant Shine Shampoo and Conditioner, 380 mL, $10 each, contain micro-refined silicone to eliminate frizz while penetrating the strand to make it silkier and more manageable.
Treat It Right: Use Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Time Renewal Replenishing Mask, 225 mL, $10, once a week. After you apply it, throw on a shower cap and let it sit for 3–5 minutes, then quick-blast it with the heat from a diffuser for 1-2 minutes.
Brush Up Skills: Comb through your conditioner with a wide-tooth comb such as Goody So Gelous Detangling Comb, $9. Its plasmium-gel grip means it won’t slip and slide.
Baby-fine & flat
Wash and Condition: Dr.Hauschka Apricot and Sea Buckthorn Shampoo, 200 mL, $20, and Dr.Hauschka Jojoba and Marshmallow Conditioner, 200 mL, $25, are lightweight formulas that add voluptuous volume
Treat It Right: Work in Back to Basics Leave-in Sunflower Conditioner, 250 mL, $11, to keep your hair pliable and less vulnerable to splitting, but avoid the top four inches of your head—where you don’t need extra oil.
Brush Up Skills: Raincry Ceramic Smoothing Brush, $55, combines natural boar bristles and heat-resistant nylon bristles to glide smoothly through your mane. Blow-dry your hair in the direction opposite from where you’d like it to fall, then flip.
Wash and Condition: Choose products that kick-start the style you’d like to achieve, such as L’Oréal Vive Pro Style & Body Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner for Curly Uncontrollable Hair, 385 mL, $7 each.
Treat It Right: Try a clarifying shampoo, such as Rene Furterer Fioravanti Clarify and Shine Rinse, 250 mL, $27, to remove excess buildup from styling products. Use it only every two weeks to mimic virgin shine.
Brush Up Skills: Recruit the Denman D83 Large Paddle Brush, $25, with ball-ended nylon bristles to distribute a light moisture gloss through your hair while it’s still wet and say buh-bye to flyaways.
