How to Wear Your Natural Hair Texture
1. The Naturally Voluminous Blowout
So many girls with thick hair have a constant battle in finding ways to make thick hair look thin. We get it, sometimes your thick gorgeous hair gets the best of you, however, it doesn’t have to work against you all the time. Take advantage of hairstyles like voluminous blowouts, naturally. To get the look without doing much, simply wash your hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Volume Shampoo and condition with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Volume Conditioner to give your hair all day body and bounce. Blow-dry your hair until it’s dry and you’re done! Leave the rest up to your natural hair texture.
2. The Wavy Pony
We’ve heard so many girls with wavy hair complain time and time again about getting their straight hairstyles to last through wet or humid weather conditions. Sure, there are plenty hair products out on the market to help you save your sleek styles, but, you can also just choose to go with the flow. Re-create this wavy pony with a simple wash-and-go routine. Wash your hair with your go-to wash and care system, then use a wave enhancing product to help with definition. Editors’ pick: TRESemmé Make Waves Shaping Gel. Work a few pumps throughout your damp hair, then use a comb to spread the product through your hair from the root to the ends. Scrunch to mold your waves in shape, diffuse or air-dry and gather up into a high ponytail.

Calling all natural haired gals, if you’re looking for a hairstyle that’ll help you embrace your texture that’s also on-trend, go for hair crimps. To recreate this hairstyle, apply TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel on damp hair and create five to six braids all over your hair.
