Struggling to find a haircare routine that works for you? Well, you’re in the right place! In this blog, we’re going to share some universal secrets for setting up a healthy, carefree haircare routine!

Know Your Hair Type

First, let’s figure out what hair type you’re working with. A quick and easy way to do this is to take an online hair quiz or compare your hair with photos online. There are four main types of hair with their own set of textures:

  • Type 1 is Straight Hair (hair can be fine, thin, medium or coarse)
  • Type 2 is Wavy Hair (hair can be fine, thin, medium, or coarse)
  • Type 3 is Curly Hair (curls can be loose or tight)
  • Type 4 is Kinky Hair (hair can be soft or wiry)

Establishing your hair type will definitely point you in the right direction, but also pay attention to things you like or don’t like about your hair texture including hair health, volume, smoothness and density in determining which products to use.

Ingredients To Avoid, No Matter Your Hair Type

With the vast selection of products on the market, you might wonder which products and ingredients are the best. No matter your hair type, you should only use products that are free of the bad stuff.

Avoid products with ingredients like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic colors and petrolatum. Believe it or not, these ingredients not only affect our hair but our overall health as well.  Depending on the type of product, these toxic ingredients can be inhaled or absorbed through your scalp in to your bloodstream.

Look for good for your hair ingredients like nourishing oils, antioxidants, anti-statics, vegetable derived proteins and amino acids.  Also search out ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, olive oil  –  ingredients that will leave your hair shiny, soft, smooth, moisturized and looking and feeling its best.

What Products To Use According To Your Hair’s Needs

  • Lacking Moisture? Use A Leave-In Conditioner

This first step can be done whether you just got out of the shower and have damp hair or if you have bone-dry hair. You’ll want to line up your hair products, starting with a leave-in conditioner to help add and lock in moisturize, detangle your hair and combat frizz. We recommend using Saints & Sinners Velvet Divine Leave-In Conditioner.  Instantly smooths, adds shine plus the benefit of acting as a heat protectant, it’ll get the job done. Depending on your preference and hair type, you’ll need to either brush or comb through your hair after adding your leave-in conditioner or for curls, just leave-in as is.

  • Curls Need Enhancing? Try A Curl Cream

If you have Type 2, 3 or 4 hair, we suggest you use a trustworthy curl cream for definition and frizz control like Saints & Sinners Medusa Divine Curl Cream. With your curl cream you’ll want to rake it through your hair and style your hair as desired, be it using a diffuser, the old reliable “scrunching method” or simply allowing to air dry.

  • Frizzy Hair? Use Smoothing Styling Products

For hair experiencing a bit of erratic texture, we suggest a styling product that will add some shine and tackle frizz like Saints & Sinners Velvet Divine Styling Potion. It’ll smooth down the outer cuticle and restore that missing pliability.  If you’re hungry for even more mega-watt shine, mix in a pea-sized amount of Illuminati Divine Shine Holographic Serum and palm it through your hair. This will ensure a brilliant, light reflecting gleam.

  • Greasy, Oily Hair? Try A Dry Shampoo

Scalp oils and funky smells getting in the way of a great hair day? This is where you’ll want to find a dry shampoo that absorbs excess oil and odors without making your hair look chalky. Saints & Sinners Superfresh Divine Dry Shampoo with the benefit of rice protein and natural starch will add volume, absorb excess oil and sebum while giving hair that just washed freshness.

  • Craving Volume? Use A Texture Spray

If you’re craving volume, Saints & Sinners Divine Dry Finish Texture Spray is for you. Suitable for all hair types, spray at the roots for added volume and throughout for beachy texture.  Never white or flaky, you’ll achieve that ready-to-go, vavavoom hair.

All steps aside, consistency can make or break a hair care routine. Using good for your hair products containing nutrients and protectants, eating a balanced diet and using heat appliances in moderation will have you on your way to your best haircare routine!

Sinfully Good Styling!
