4 Styling Hacks for Texture Creme
Here are 4 of Team REDAVID’s favorite tips:
- TO CREATE CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD WAVES: Cocktail REDAVID Texture Creme and REDAVID Orchid Oil Treatment together and apply throughout. Curl with a ½ inch barrel to create ribbon-like curls with amazing bounce and elasticity.
- TO CREATE A TEXTURED MEN’S STYLE: Use REDAVID Texture Creme and apply to towel dried hair. Use a small vent brush and blow dryer with nozzle attachment. Alternate between combing the hair on the top from side to side to give it a slightly tousled look. Finish with REDAVID Working Spray.

Backbrush (not back comb – very important to know the difference) the hair to add more texture and rough volume to the roots of the hair. Start from the nape of the neck and work upwards.
- TO ADD VOLUME TO FINE HAIR: To give definition to fine hair requires an incredible amount of volumizing in the early stages of styling with REDAVID Volumizer. Once you’ve created the desired shape, take a little REDAVID Texture Creme and work it in the same motion as the quiff. The consistency of the Texture Creme will hold the style for a long duration. If needed, you can also use some REDAVID Working Spray, though keep in mind that when the hair spray and gel eventually dry up you’ll be left with a brittle feel to the hair.
