Healthy, luscious, and soft tresses are everyone’s dream, and it can be easily achieved with a proper hair routine. Certainly, maintaining a good haircare regimen is just as important as following a skincare routine or any other essential beauty ritual. However, if done wrong, a haircare routine can do more harm than good as there are many factors that consumers need to consider. Thankfully, AR and AI technologies can help optimize consumer haircare shopping experience and lead your consumers to the best products for their needs.
How to Build an Effective Haircare Regimen
The perfect haircare routine will take your consumers’ hair from dull to gorgeous, but there’s no universal formula and the proper regimen should be fully customized just for your customers and their hair needs.
When building an ideal, one-of-a-kind haircare routine, several factors should be taken into consideration, including:
- Hair type and texture
- Preferred hairstyling method (e.g. do your customers use a curling iron on a daily basis or prefer a more natural style)
- Whether your hair has been chemically processed
- Elasticity and porosity
- Personal needs and concerns (e.g. do your customers wish to combat excess hair dryness, oiliness, or frizz?)
As you can see, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all haircare routine. Furthermore, whereas some factors on that list can be easily addressed, determining one’s hair type and texture can be quite challenging. So, how can your customers determine their hair type?
How to Identify Different Types of Hair
There are four general hair types: straight, wavy, curly, and coily. Each of these main types contains subcategories with certain unique characteristics.
Type 1: Straight.Does not curl easily and falls flat from the roots.
Type 2: Wavy.
Mid-point between straight and wavy hair.
- 2A: Thin wavy
- 2B: Medium wavy
- 2C: Thick wavy
Type 3: Curly.
Prominent curls from the root down.
- 3A: Loose curls
- 3B: Medium curls
- 3C: Tight curls
Type 4: Coily.
Characterized by very tight curls that could break easily.
