Top Tips to perfect the best textured hairstyles by celebrity hair stylist Asgar Saboo

Understanding hair texture is crucial in achieving beautiful bouncy styles as opposed to that dreaded dull limp hair. Celebrity hairstylist to the likes of Cindy Crawford & Eva Longoria, Asgar Saboo shares his top natural tips and remedies to get textured hair.

The best way to find the perfect texture for hair is to experiment. All hair types have different levels of texture, thickness and elasticity so the best way to get the look you want is to test different natural remedies and tips of locking in texture.. This means that hair can naturally be textured every day, without the use of damaging heat styling, which over a period of time causes hair to become dry and brittle, making it harder to achieve texture later on.

Straight Hair

Straight hair is the hardest type of hair to achieve texture as the hair naturally falls smoothly without volume, with a risk of it looking limp and flat.

How to: Detangle with fingers while damp and give an all over spritz of volumising or salt spray. Put the damp hair up into a high ponytail and wrap the ends around the band and secure into a bun. Leave in to dry overnight. Once dry, let it down. The hair will naturally look more volumised and textured with slight waves and movement. Finish with massaging texture power at the roots of the hair, for more volume and a long hold, apply hair spray all over to hold the waves.

Salt Spray

There's no need to spend a dime on sea salt spray, because chances are, you have all of the ingredients to do it yourself lying around to get that perfectly effortless, salt-water-sculpted wavy hair. Instead of using gel, use pomade within the mix with hot water, sea salt, coconut oil, leave in conditioner. It will evade any crunch, leaving your locks free to flow in the summer breeze.

Wavy Hair

Naturally wavy hair already has slight texture so here is how to enhance this and to create more defined waves.

How to: Run hair gel through damp hair dividing the hair in half. Do not brush the hair as this will dull the end result of the texture. Create braids all around the head securing into place. After the hair is dry, normally the morning after, undo the braids and lightly comb through with your fingers, pulling the braids apart. Again avoiding a brush. Keep dry shampoo on hand for an afternoon reboot, and avoid thick conditioners that can weigh hair down, giving strands a greasy look.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is locked with all the essential nutrients that are very useful for improving the texture of your hair. The use of Aloe Vera improves the growth of hair, prevents hair loss and breakage extensively, ultimately creating more texture and volume over a period of time.

Curly Hair

For you lucky people who were born with naturally curly hair, you are at an advantage because curly hair already holds a lot of luscious texture and volume. The idea behind styling curly hair is to naturally develop and mould the hair into the style and texture that is desired.

How to: After a shower, without towel drying, as this will pull the texture and waves out whilst causing frizz. Apply a curl smoothing serum all over the hair, covering the hair from the root to the tip. Pull back into a low bun and leave to dry. Brushing and touching the hair will lead to frizz, so it is better to let the hair dry before touching it. In the morning pull the hair out of the low bun and the hair will naturally be more defined with bounce. . Avoid the crunchy look by finishing the dry style with a few drops of hair oil and deep condition the hair at least once a week to keep the hair luscious.

Green tea

Green tea is rich in anti-oxidants and poly phenols which are very used from promoting the growth of the hair. Not only this, the vitamin C present in green tea also adds beautiful shine to hair.

Cork Screw Hair

This type of hair is the coarsest and driest of all the hair types, because of the many twists and turns of this texture type, it can be difficult to get moisture to the scalp and maintain shine

How to: Clearly defined corkscrew coils can range in size. To avoid crunchy curls, wash strands with a cleansing conditioner, which will help to weigh the hair down. This will also cut down on flyway's and maintain shine. Use light gels and styling butters to twist hair damp hair with fingers into place. Again do not brush the hair as this will end result of the texture and leave the hair lifeless but frizzy.

Almond oil and banana home remedy for soft hair

Banana and almond oil together make an excellent remedy to get rid of dry and frizzy hair. Besides maintaining natural elasticity and moisture, this mask will also prevent split ends, hair loss and hair breakage. Being a rich source of omega fatty acid and multi vitamins, almond oil will penetrate deep into the scalp skin making them healthy and strong.
