Wondering how much of your favorite styling products to use? We were, too—so we asked David Shablesky, Senior Education Development Manager here at Moroccanoil, to give us the (appropriately sized) scoop.
The amount of product you’ll want to use depends on a few factors:
Your Hair Type
“The amount of product partially depends on the on the length, texture, formation, and density of your hair,” David says. So long, coarse, curly, and dense hair can generally handle more product than short, fine, straight, or sparse hair.
Your Style Goals
“The goal of the style may influence how much product you use,” David advises. For example, if the goal is a “sleek” style, you may want to layer Moroccanoil Treatment, Hydrating Styling Cream, and Smoothing Lotion to create your look. For a more “natural” look, you may want to use less product.
The Product Itself
Obviously, this is a big factor! For something concentrated like a serum, you might start with a pea-sized amount—but for a mousse, you’d want to think bigger (think an egg). David broke down a few Moroccanoil favorites for us:
“Apply several pumps to towel-dried hair, from mid-lengths through ends,” David says. “Distribute evenly with your fingers or a detangling comb. Apply more product as needed, depending on the length, texture, formation (straight, wavy or curly), and density of your hair.”
Since these products are a little lighter, you can apply them starting from your roots! “Apply several pumps to towel-dried hair, from roots through ends,” David says. “Distribute evenly with your fingers or a detangling comb. Apply more product as needed.”
