Embrace the natural

5 Aug

We spend a lot of time giving people advice on how their hair should be. Protect it, smooth it, texture it. When we say “we” we mean the beauty industry. Hair has to look a certain way, feel a certain way.

At Dream Girl, we believe every woman is individual and her hair should be worn however she wants to wear it. Hair extensions, weaves or wigs, they’re all just about accentuating the natural beauty that’s already there.

So here’s our guide to how to make the most out of your own hair, no matter its length, texture or volume.

Frizz isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can help you build volume, but you have to tackle the dryness first. If frizzy hair is caused by your hair being dry then you could have an increase in breakages. Use a curl enhancing cream to help tackle any damage to ends. It means your hair will be fuller rather than wispy frizzy.

Frizzy or curly hair doesn’t mean you can’t wear hair extensions. Dream Girl has a range with different tightness of curls, depending on what you need, with French Jerry Curls offering the very tightest curls, ideal for plaiting or braiding or just adding length and volume.

For those with fine hair frizz, use a wide toothed comb everyday to keep strands separate. You can accentuate the waves by styling pin curls, just one inch sections of hair twisted and pinned. Use a little spray and leave for half an hour then unfurl. It’ll help build shape into the kinks.

Super thick hair can still be worn long. Hair extensions comes in a variety of different lengths so you can add length. Opt for a hair extension with a loose wave, as very thick hair often has plenty of texture. A wavy hair extension will blend in more seamlessly with your natural locks.

If you’re braiding your afro and find it difficult to control, use a little styling cream on your fingers as your plait. It’ll coat you and your hair as well as helping you to keep the rows neat.

Always work with your natural texture, rather than against it.

For those with fine hair, don’t bemoan what you see as flatness. It’s much easier to cut texture into fine hair. Plus you can opt for a much shorter style and then use clip on hair extensions to add length whenever you feel like it.
