How to Identify your Hair Type!
Having worked in the hair care industry, for over 45 years I've learned the importance of providing my clients with the products to style their hair at home. You may be one of those people who has a "shelf of bad decisions" at home, where we store products that we brought with high hopes but didn't work out just because it wasn't the right product. We hesitate to throw them because we've invested our earned money in them so they end up sitting there like decorative pieces.
In today's video, our goal is to help you better understand your hair type so that you can make choices when selecting the hair care products.
Specifically we will be focusing on hair texture. Hair Texture refers to the shape of your hair as it naturally sits on your head. You may have come across charts that categorise hair types from one to four with subcategories labelled A, B and C (see the example).
While this might initially seem complex, breaking it down into terms will enable you to identify your hair type and determine which products would be most suitable for you. Different textures call for types of hair products. For example when you wash your hair and you leave it just to dry by itself, this is where you see the natural texture or shape of the hair. If your hair dries straight without any waves or curls you fall into category 1.
Category 2 encompasses hair, with varying degrees of wave intensity.
There are variations of Category 2, A: which has flatter waves, B: which has a curvier shape and C: which is characterised by a prominent 'C' or 'S' shape. Hair in this category absolutely does not cross, because at the point at which the hair crosses, this is when we have curls (Category 3).
Category 3 introduces curls divided into A, B and C with sizes of curls. The bigger curls fall under 3A and the smaller curls fall under 3C. 3C hair is more often confused with Category 4, which is coily hair. Coily hair has a zigzag pattern that tightens as it dries and gives it a springy texture.
Knowing where your hair falls on this spectrum is important, in selecting the right hair care products. Consider the shine and weight of the products you choose and adjust your hair care routine accordingly.
In understanding your hair type, you've taken a crucial step towards achieving the perfect style. Remember, the right products tailored to your specific texture can make all the difference. From straight to coily, embrace your natural beauty with confidence. If you found this video transcript helpful, be sure to check out our other beauty resources for more insights.
