Take our quiz now to find the perfect products to help you reach your #hairgoals and love the hair you're in even more.
Our hair is so closely linked to how we feel. That's why when it looks good, we feel good too.
And while we can cut it and dye it to our heart's content, there's no denying that to get our best ever hair, we've got to work with what we've got and love the hair we're in.
We've put together the three biggest keys to loving the hair you've been blessed with, so you can feel like you're reaching your ultimate #hairgoals every single day.
1. What’s Your Type?
Figuring out your hair type is the ultimate trick to learning how to work with what you've got. Whether it's naturally curly or dead straight, thick or fine, dry or on the oiler side, knowing what your hair's natural texture can make it easier to care for.
First, figure out what your hair does when it dries all on its own. Let it dry naturally – that means no product and no heating – and see if it dries straighter or on the wavier side.
Then, look at the size of your individual strands. A helpful tip is to use sewing thread as a tool for comparison – if it's thinner, your hair is on the fine side. Thicker, and you've got hair that can hold curls easier, but can be more difficult to manage.
2. What Do You Need?
Once you're determined your hair type, it's much easier to figure out what your hair needs – aka your #hairgoals.
Thinner, straighter hair tends to err on the greasy side, and can also be prone to breakage. So, look for products that contain strengthening ingredients, like collagen and keratin. Thicker, curlier hair can often feel coarse, or look frizzy, so try products containing coconut oil or Moroccan oil for an instant moister boost.
Hair that is colour-treated also needs a little TLC, so keep it looking fresh with a colour-safe range like OGX. Blondes may need a little extra care, so try OGX's Purple Toning range to brighten and colour-correct yellow tones, while protecting from fading. For ready-to-go colour that busts through brassiness, there's the Purple Toning Shampoo, or add a few drops of the Purple Toning Drops to your favourite shampoo or conditioner for brighter, fresher colour.
3. Become A Style Superstar
Once you've nourished your hair with ingredients and products that leave it feeling healthy and looking vibrant, it's time to play.
Switching up your styling can give you an instant confidence boost, plus it means you can match your 'do to whatever mood you're in.
No matter the look you're going for, it's always important to prep your hair with the right base. That way, your hair is protected from any damage, plus your final look stays picture perfect for longer.
If your curling wand or straightener are your best friends, a heat protection spray is a must to prevent damage. Or, if you're after a natural finish with braided details, try dialling up the shine with a penetrating oil for a silky, soft-looking finish.
