Caring for and styling short hair does not have to be difficult, in fact, it can be fun and easy. It may seem like there are few options when it comes to styling short hair, but that isn’t the case. When it comes to taking care of your short hair, there is a few things to keep in mind.

Short Hair Care

When you have short hair, your scalp can become more visible and this will have an effect on the condition of the hair. If your scalp is on the oily side, you’ll have to wash your hair more often to avoid grease buildup and you may also want to avoid oil-based hair products. If you have a dryer scalp, you’ll definitely want to start using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner like Keranique Deep Hydration Scalp Stimulating Shampoo and Deep Hydration Volumizing Conditioner. As you might expect, you should be using smaller amounts of hair product and when rinsing your hair, try to use water that’s on the cooler side.

How to Style Short Hair

Styling short hair can be a lot of fun. If you are rocking the pixie cut, a great style is to keep it sleek against your head, this is a very chic hair style. This can be done with a flat iron, just be sure to reduce the heat.

If you still have some length on top, but short hair on the sides, try blowing out the top for a sophisticated, voluminous look. Using a blow dryer, you’ll want to curl the front of your hair up, giving it a flipped look that then gets combed to the side.

Now, if you have curly hair you may be in luck. For those with curls, it is so easy to just throw some Thickening & Texturizing Mousse in and be on your way, no matter how short your hair is.

      Hi Nisha, thank you for your question! Keep in mind, hair regrowth takes time and patience. It is important to remember that everyone is different. Some users notice some results in as little as 2 to 4 months, but to see best results, it can take from 6 months up to a year. Once you’ve experienced initial results, you will continue to see improvement in your hair.
      Thank you

    Those style are well and good for the mid aged or younger woman but what about the older women in their 70’s and 80’s?

    I have heard you should cut your hair every 6-8 weeks, but if you are trying to grow it out, that is defeating the purpose. My hair just touches my shoulders and is thinning, I am 68, but I want it a little longer and thicker.

      Hi Connie, great question! The frequency that you “should” trim your hair comes down to the type, texture and style of your hair. If you are experiencing split ends, it may not be a bad idea to trim a bit, even if your goal is to have longer hair. To address the thinning you should first start at the source, your follicles. Keranique Follicle Boosting Serum does just that. It is an alcohol-free, light-weight serum that combines advanced skincare and hair-care ingredients in one premium formula to target and help address hair health at the source of its growth-your follicle. It helps thicken your hair fiber and decreases thinning due to breakage, while it stimulates, nourishes and supports your scalp health.

    I am now using the Follicle Boosting Serum to help the very areas in the temples of my hair. Recently I saw an ad online that said to use this product every seven days. Please tell me the correct way to use this serum.
    Thank you

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi Mary!
      Thank you so much for using Keranique. For best results, we recommend using the Follicle Boosting Serum twice a day every day. Towel dry hair/dampen scalp, apply Follicle Boosting Serum directly to your scalp and massage with your fingertips. As the serum absorbs into your scalp it will help to thicken your hair fiber and decrease thinning due to breakage. We also offer an 8-Day Intensive Scalp Infusion Treatment – It is a concentrated, corrective treatment that was developed to help stimulate and nourish the scalp. The formula exfoliates the scalp, clearing follicle-clogging debris, helping to support and strengthen thinning hair as it grows. This can be used Monthly or bimonthly.
