Which Remedy Is Right For You?

We all need a little extra hydration sometimes. So whether that means drinking more water or spending 10-15 minutes giving your hair a little in-shower TLC, we support it. In fact, we support it so much, we added another Remedy to our roster: The Remedy for Fine Hair. Now, no matter what length or texture, your strands can get the moisture they deserve.

Not sure if your hair texture is better suited for original Remedy or more for Remedy for Fine Hair? Check out the breakdown below to help you decide which formula is right for you.

The Thickness

To figure out if your hair skews thicker or thinner, pluck a single strand from a spot on your scalp that’s fairly dense. Once you’ve done that, compare it to a piece of sewing thread. If it’s similar or wider than the thread, your hair is thick. If it’s slighter than the thread, your hair is on the thinner side.

The Density

Density also plays a part in the way your hair absorbs conditioners, and hair products in general. To check the density of your hair, throw it in a ponytail. If your hair is less dense, the circumference of your ponytail will be less than two inches. Anything wider than that means you’ve got medium to high density hair. If your hair isn’t long enough for a ponytail, here’s a quick way to check: If it’s fairly easy to see your scalp through your hair, your hair is on the less dense side.

The Type

The pattern of your curl (or the lack thereof) is another guide to selecting the perfect Remedy for your locks. If you have straight hair, follow our tips to nail down the thickness and density of your mane, and you’ll be on your way to the hydration station. If you’re blessed with curly tresses, you’ve probably noticed that your ends are a little more dry and damaged—this is because natural oils from your scalp have a hard time traveling down the twists and turns of your strands. Nothing a little Remedy can’t remedy, though.

Have beachy waves? Grab some Remedy for Fine Hair to give your hair some moisture without weighing it down. Thicker hair with bouncy ringlets? Use the original Remedy Colorless Hair Mask to keep your curls hydrated. S- or Z-patterned curls? Hydration is absolutely essential to prevent breakage on these coils—use Remedy for Fine Hair as often as you like, and The Remedy as a moisture-packed hair mask treatment whenever you feel like nourishing your curls—we recommend once a week or every other week.

The Results

If your hair is on the thinner, less dense side, or if you have beachy waves that need some moisture (without being weighed down), The Remedy For Fine Hair is going to be your healthy, hydrating miracle conditioner.
If your hair is on the thicker, denser side, or if you have bouncy ringlets that need some TLC, we suggest going for the original Remedy to get the hydration your hair needs.

If your hair is a combination of thickness and density, we recommend starting with the original Remedy, and diluting as needed until you find the perfect ratio for your hair.
