Styling tips for your new hair

You will be amazed at how a little bit of product can create texture and calm unruly hair – even if it is very short. Here are some tips:


Sara pictured here left uses a leave-in conditioner on her new curls.

Leave-in Conditioner is ideal as a great extra protective layer for dry hair. Most formulas are light enough that you can layer your styling products on top.

Hair oils
Look for oils rather than serums. The difference is that hair will absorb essential and natural oils. Whereas some serum base products can sit onto the hair making it feel sticky and gooey, whereas a natural oil will be absorbed.


Soft mousse
Soft mousse is ideal for fine hair that is static. A stronger mousse may have a higher alcohol content or feel sticky and tacky which can make your hair feel dry.

Jane pictured here says " I had never heard of pomade until Jasmin showed me how to put some into my short new hair - it's great to have these little tips as they make your hair feel in a style"

A pomade is lighter than a wax. It is ideal to add into hair when dry and will help to define and add light texture your style. Great for taming frizz and dry ends. Ideal for new hair growth and finer hair types to get rid of static and add a gentle shine.

Wax is good for really unruly and hair as it is strong and can help to mould and manipulate your style and hold it in place- good for controlling frizz and curls.

If you need a gel look for an Aloe Vera base because this will be much more moisturising. Good to help encourage spiky textures.

Shine Spray
A shine spray will give your style a lovely glossy finish
