If your hair is Thick and Straight (ish)
1. In the shower: Because thick hair can be coarse, you need a shampoo that will soften it. Using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner is a must. Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Shampoo contains hair-silkening cassia and aloe vera and Suave Professionals Damage Care Conditioner helps smooth dense hair. If you have oily roots, confine conditioner to the ends.
2. When hair is still damp: Spritz a spray gel from midlength to ends. It's strong enough to control frizz but not so heavy that it will add more weight to your hair. Also, it's fine to use a formula labeled "volumizing," as long as you keep the product off your roots so it won't create pouf.
3. Just before you leave the house: Bulky hair will have more swing if you use a wax to separate it into small, piecey sections. Run your fingers over Kiehl's Creative Cream Wax and then rub your hands together to emulsify it. Pull it through the hair around your face and your ends.
