hair types

There are a variety of different factors that affect how your hair works. Let’s look at the ones I have found most important.

  1. Density- your hair is either fine, combination or coarse. This is literally regarding the size your hairs. For me, my hair is coarse, meaning it’s very thick stranded. Density is not affected by your hair pattern.
  2. Porosity- either low, high or normal. This is how your hair absorbs moisture. You can test your porosity by placing a strand of your hair in water.  Try this link to check out more information!
  3. Curl pattern- determined by the shape of your curls! This is important mostly for protective styling. I have type 3c hair; meaning that my hair resembles a twist. So twists are the best option for me for protective styling!
