Make your hair perfectly smooth so that it shines in the sun. Although you will need to apply some products, they won't cause damage or build-up if you use oil-based styling items.

Q: Which hair cut is best for long hair?
A: In order to pick the best haircut for long hair, you need to consider two essential details: your face shape and hair texture. While women with medium-thick textures feel comfortable with their hair at any length, those with fine hair notice lack of volume as their hair grows out.
