Regardless of your hair texture, whether you have a curly hairstyle or fine, straight hair, you can learn how to style layered hair with a few tools and products. A very good hair dryer for your hair type is essential, and you may also want to invest in the best straightener or curling iron for layered hair if they will help you achieve your desired style.

You can use a volume booster for more texture, because it gives the hair natural volume and does not make it too heavy. An alternative to this is styling cream, which you put in wet hair and then let it dry naturally. Don’t be afraid to experiment. You can use these two products together – for example, after washing your hair, take volumizing spray for wet hair and then styling cream for the ends to give them texture. You can also buy a dry shampoo to achieve a choppy look. If you prefer a smooth finish, serums and oils will help you get shiny hair.
