                      Would this be the right product to try on longer, somewhat wavy layers? I am looking for a product to help get that separated, "piecey" look. My hair is kinda thin, but products usually help it hold a curl well!

                    • Q:

                      I have a freshly permed curly bob. I'm looking for a finishing styling product that will help to hold my hair in place AFTER I have dried it with a diffuser. Basically, I need a finishing styling product to help place the hair and define it and a spray to keep it there. Would this work, or what would you recommend?

                        The Texturizing Taffy is great for getting the "messy" look. This product has as hold index of 17, but is also moveable if you want to change up the style half way through your day. Typically it is worn in shorter hair, but also used in long hair to tame fly aways, and for smoothing out hair for updos. If you are looking for lift and hold, I would use the Root Lifting Spray, it goes on damp hair, and then style as normal. Finish your look with the Award Winning Volume Spray 25. This product has a hold index of 25, it will keep your hair from going flat all day. The greatest thing about the Volume Spray 25 is that even though it has an amazing hold, it is not sticky, or hard. You can brush the style out right after and you would never know you had hairspray on.

                    • Q:

                      Can you use this on damp hair and then on your hair when it is dry? I noticed my hair looked great the other day and I was wondering if I was using too much of the product. Can you also blow dry your damp hair after putting this in your hair? I have chin length natural curly hair...which gives you more volume. Damp hair , dry hair or both? I really love it!!

                      what's the difference in use and results between the Platinum Texturizing Taffy 13 vs the Platinum Working Wax 15?

                      I have thin hair cut to chin length (bob), very thin at the crown and thick at the back of my head. Looking for volume, texture and thickness. Also that won't weigh hair down.

                        Medium, flexible hold for texture and definition

                        Provides ultra-matte finish

                        For your hair type, I would suggest the Texture Wax, Thickening Glaze, and The Texture Powder.

                        I would also suggest Hot Spray 20, it is a heat protect, and has a hold index of 20.

                        A:

                        Yes, I would suggest putting it in your hair damp, and not blow drying or flat ironing. If your hair is damaged, you need to let it air dry for awhile, and stay away from hot tools. This product creates texture in the hair, but it has a moveable feel, and provides a matte finish.

                        I would also suggest our Nourishing Masque. I would use this in your hair once a week to repair the condition of your hair.

                        Also, I would suggest Platinum Silkening Mist, it helps repair split ends.

                      I have curly hair and I usually put this on my hair when I'm my hair is dry. Last night I went out and my hair wasn't dry yet. It was damp so I put some in my damp hair! Will that give me volume on damp hair?

                        For texture, separation and control, place desired amount in palms, emulsify, work through damp or dry hair. The amount of volume achieved will depend on the hair texture and density.

                      I read the reviews, however, I couldn't tell if the reviews were written by African American woman or Caucasian women. I'm African American and have a Nu-wave curl in my hair and didn't know if this product would work on my hair. It sounds great!

                        Kenra Professional Platinum Texturizing Taffy 13 is free of sulfates and salt, so it is absolutely safe to use on chemically- and color-treated hair, and it works wonderfully on all hair types and textures!
