Overcoming the Challenges of Textured Hair

About 60 percent of the world’s population has curly, coily or wavy hair – also known as “textured” hair. Dow offers ingredients designed to address the specific challenges of textured hair, including dryness and frizz, lack of flexibility, and lack of curl definition or retention.

Benefits of Dow’s Textured Hair Ingredients

  • Moisturized feel on hair
  • Hair that feels soft and silky
  • Improved curl definition
  • Frizz control
  • Manageable hair
  • Shine
  • Flexibility
