HOW TO KNOW YOUR HAIR TYPE?
IT’S THE KEY TO GETTING THE AMAZING LOOKING LOCKS.
Your hair and your scalp are your unique crowning glory. It is important to understand your hair type, hair care routine, lifestyle, and your desired styles so that you can choose the right hair products to ensure peak hair and scalp health.
GREAT HAIR HEALTH STARTS AT THE SCALP.
The scalp is where your hair grows from the root. Hair growth is influenced by the condition of your scalp. Cleansing your scalp with shampoo is important to create a healthy environment for hair growth. Cleansing removes build-up of oil (sebum), sweat, dead skin cells, product build-up and pollution. All of these can cause blockage of the pores. An unhealthy scalp can lead to poor hair growth, dull hair, dandruff, scalp irritation, oily limp hair, and breakage.
Ensuring your cleanse with the right products can help reduce oily roots, help stimulate healthy hair growth and promote visibly healthy hair with body and bounce. It’s as important as your skin care routine. Cleanse, condition and protect your scalp and hair.
To better understand your scalp, ask yourself which of these, best describes how your scalp feels? Normal / dry /oily / dandruff / irritated. If you answer dandruff or irritated scalp, then you may need more specialised cleansers which fix this problem. RPR TREAT MY SCALP and SO CLEAR are professional grade therapy shampoos that will gently soothe and relieve irritated scalps and combat dandruff. If you have an oily scalp, then you may need SO DEEP SHAMPOO to detox the remove oil and build-up.
HOW TO KNOW WHAT HAIR TYPE YOU ARE?
Your hair texture, chemical treatments, styling regime and living environment will influence the condition of your hair. For example, if you have highly bleached hair, it is possible to be dry and damaged. If you live in a hot and humid environment, you may suffer from frizz and limp lifeless hair.
Some questions to ask yourself to help better know your hair type include:
What is the density of your hair?
Is it fine, medium or thick? Fine hair requires products that won’t weigh the hair down and will promote body and bounce. RPR REJUVENATE MY HAIR is a light product that provides hydration to your locks. RPR HAIR BOOSTER is a styling treatment that encourages healthy hair growth and helps give body and bounce.
What is the texture of your hair?
Is it straight, wavy, curly and very tight coils? Products are designed with varying amounts of moisture and hydration to suit different hair textures. For example, if you have very curly hair and are prone to frizz, RPR FIX MY FRIZZ SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER offer superior smoothing benefits to help seal you ends and tame your locks.
How do you style your hair and how often?
Excessive styling can damage your hair. This includes heat from thermal styling and friction from brushing. If you subject your hair to high heat thermal styling then you need RPR PROTECT MY HAIR which will shield hair from damage from straighteners, blow drying or curling up to 220 degrees. If you want a bit of hold when styling, you should choose SO HOT thermal styler which protects and helps hold your style in place.

Where do you live? Is it humid, urban or remote in the country?
Humidity requires products that help stop flyaways and promotes body. SO MAGIC is a styling treatment that will give voluminous body and bounce to blow dries as well as help calm flyaways.
