If you didn’t see our previous article about hair types, be sure to take a look before getting into this one. Today we’ll be talking about all things straight hair!

As covered previously, straight hair is categorised as:

  • 1A Hair – Straight and fine hair
  • 1B Hair – Less straight hair with a slight bend
  • 1C Hair – Bone straight hair

I’m sure some people with naturally curly hair dream of waking up with straight locks. At first glance, it seems like it will come with no strifes. But every hair type has its struggles and straight hair is no exception.

A common problem for those with straight hair is a lack of volume, usually accompanied by thin, fine strands of hair. With this comes a myriad of other things, such as static, tangles, and – my personal worst nightmare – hair becoming greasy fast.

Luckily, the haircare scene is always coming up with new products and techniques to make our lives a little easier. 

In this article, we will list the best products to tackle your straight hair woes and help you to get the most out of your natural hair.

1. Lightweight Conditioner

Adding volume to your hair starts with your washing routine. Choosing a shampoo suitable for straight hair is key, but the most important one is conditioner. If you choose a heavy conditioner then this can weigh your hair down, reducing volume. You still need to ensure your hair is conditioned but opt for a lightweight formula.

2. Volumising Powder

You may also benefit from a volumising product such as a root boost powder. This adds texture to your roots and prevents your hair from laying flat against your scalp. There are also volumising sprays that work in the same way but are quicker to use.

3. Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo can be a lifesaver when your hair needs a freshen-up in between washes. It helps to absorb the excess oil at your roots giving you a few days’ grace before you need to wash your hair again. This is a great option as straight, thin hair is prone to getting greasy faster than other hair types. As well as this, some formulas help to give you volume and lift at the roots too.

4. Anti-static Products

Static hair is a common problem for fine hair and there are a few options to remedy this. You can opt for a lightweight leave-in conditioner or hair oil and run it through the ends of your hair. You’ll want to avoid applying these products to your roots, as this will make your hair appear greasy.

You can also get specific products such as sprays and hair brushes to stop static.

5. Heat Protection

When it comes to styling straight hair, it can often be difficult to add texture and have it hold for any length of time. If you are wanting to add some curls, you will inevitably have to use a heat tool such as a curling wand or hair straighteners. Using heat tools often will damage your hair and leave it dry and prone to breakage and split ends. To prevent this, get yourself a good heat protectant so that you can style your hair with minimal damage. Many sprays on the market resist high temperatures and stop frizz and dryness too.
