Finding the Right Products for Your Hair Type

Table of Contents

Beautiful hair is every woman’s dream, yet finding the right products tailored to your hair’s specific needs can feel overwhelming with so many options. Understanding your unique hair profile is key – whether fine, thick, curly or color treated, analyzing characteristics makes choosing customized shampoos, masks and styling products for your personal hair goals far easier.

How to Determine Your Hair Type?

Pinpointing your hair type is essential to find suitable products, but distinguishing fine details isn’t always easy. Your hair professional will help you determine your hair type with you. 

We Take Note of:

  • Whether your hair is naturally straight, wavy, curly or coiled
  • If your hair feels limp, struggles to hold a style, and lacks density (signs of fine hair)
  • If your hair feels heavy, has noticeable bulk, and resists styling (signs of thick hair)
  • How quickly your hair becomes oily at the roots
  • If/when your hair ends become dried out

 At Colair Beauty Lounge, our experts examine each client’s locks and scalp to provide recommendations for professional formulations that target concerns for your particular hair type.

Products for Fine Hair

Fine hair requires careful product selection for volume and fullness without weighing down. Cleansers and conditioners need to nourish delicate strands while leaving each follicle with bounce. Styling aids like texturizing mists and mousses bring dimension between washes without falling flat quickly for those with limp locks.

Shampoos & Conditioners

  • Sulfate-free cleansers
  • Lightweight moisture formulas
  • Volumizing ingredients like wheat protein

Styling Products

  • Texturizing sprays
  • Soft hold mousses
  • Volumizing powders

Products for Thick Hair

Though thick hair is envied, taming excessive fullness comes with challenges like greasiness and unmanageability. The right shampoos remove weighed-down oils at the root without over-drying strands. Conditioners and styling products need to balance moisture, nourishment and smoothing effects from mid-shaft down to the ends.

Shampoos & Conditioners

  • Clarifying formulas
  • Ingredients to improve follicle breathing
  • Rich yet fast-absorbing butters
  • Targeted masks for mid-lengths to ends

Styling Products

  • Leave-in conditioning creams
  • Frizz-fighting serums
  • Dry oils to control puffiness

Products for Curly Hair

Embracing curly hair’s natural texture means selecting products with curl-friendly ingredients. Shampoos and conditioners need to cut through styling product buildup without compromising moisture levels hair needs. Defining gels, frizz-fighting serums and weather-resistant sprays maintain springy ringlets between washes without residue, crunchiness or flakes.

Shampoos & Conditioners

  • Cleansing without stripping oils
  • Coconut-based cleansers
  • Intense hydrating masks
  • Styling creams with hold

Styling Products

  • Curl-defining gels
  • Frizz reduction serums
  • Weather resistance sprays
