How to Style Hair with Multiple Curl Patterns

Is your mane multitextured? More people deal with it than you may think. Though it's not a problem from a hair health standpoint, having multiple curl patterns can complicate styling. But there's hope for you - you just need to get your hands on the right tools, products, and techniques. In this article, we'll share several tips you can use to supercharge your hair styling routine.

Get a Professional Cut

When you have multiple textures, you're bound to have portions of hair that draw up more than others. This can result in an extremely uneven mane. To combat this, go in for a dry curly cut from a professional (or DIY your cut at home). A cut that takes all your textures into account makes DIY styling much easier.

Style Certain Sections Differently

Since you have multiple textures, we urge you to style each texture a little differently. For instance, if you're doing a wash n' go and notice that some of your hair isn't curling like the rest, you'll need to give that less-defined hair some more love.

This might require you to use more product and consider shingling or finger coiling those sections. Though you may still be able to tell the difference between the curl patterns, you can get them to look more cohesive with targeted styling.

Set Your Hair to Create a Uniform Texture

The great thing about hair is that it can be molded into various textures. Use this to your advantage by setting your hair with rollers, rods, Curlformers, or another hair styling tool. You'll enjoy sleek, bouncy, uniform curls - bye-bye multiple textures!  

Roller and rod sets involve the following steps:

  1. Wash and condition your hair.

  2. Part out a section of hair and apply a leave-in and setting lotion of your choice.

  3. Wrap the section of hair around your roller, rod, etc.

  4. Repeat this on the rest of your hair.

  5. Let your hair air dry.

  6. Remove the curling tools from your hair.

  7. Fluff, separate, and go.

The great thing about setting your curls is that it doesn't involve heat damage, a common consequence of applying direct heat to your hair. Just know that the curls you create will only last up to a week or so or until you wash your hair again.

Prioritize Hair Health

Whether you have one hair texture or four, it's harder to style your hair if it's damaged. So, do yourself a favor and always pay attention to the health of your hair. Here are a few tips to keep in mind in this regard:

  • Keep your hair hydrated and moisturized.

  • Wherever your hair gets dry, try moisturizing and sealing using the LOC method, where you apply liquid, oil, and then cream to your hair.

  • Cover your hair at night to protect against moisture loss.

  • Detangle gently and take your time.

  • Don't overwash your hair.

So, there you have it - how to style hair with multiple curl patterns. One of the best ways to ensure hair styling success is to purchase the right products. Daily Dose Leave-in Conditioner and Deep Conditioner are formulated for curls of all kinds and will make your hair healthier, more pliable, shinier, and better-looking overall. These benefits and more make styling so much easier. We hope you found all the information you were looking for, and we wish you the best with your hair!
