Your Hair Type

Hair is a filamentous outgrowth of protein, found only on mammals. It projects from the epidermis, though it grows from hair follicles deep in the dermis. Your hair type has great natural body, but may look dull or unruly. To maximize your hair’s potential, choose a layered hair style look (long or short) that cuts shape into curly hair.Normal Hair is shiny yet not greasy and fairly easy to manage. It flies about a little a day after the set but it soon settles down and looks good for about a week. Oily Hair looks good for a day or two after shampooing but then quickly becomes lifeless. Dry Hair is difficult to control dry hair after shampooing. The head too feels dry and sometimes itchy. Dry hair breaks of very easily. Combination hair is the combination of both greasy and dry hair.

It is usually fairly long and the hair nearest the head is greasy while the ends are dry. After shampooing, the hair looks good except for the ends. Medium textured and straight hair is very adaptable. If you’re washing your hair every day or more, it may be better to choose a mild shampoo instead of a shampoo designed for oily hair. Medium hair is probably the best hair volume you could have. It is also the most common and manageable hair type out there. Thin type of hair is strong and extremely hard to manage. Layering will give thick hair a little more shape and direction since this hair type will sometimes look “too big” when it is all one length. Wavy hair has a lot of natural movement that can look really good with the right styling products.

If your hair dry type use shampoo your hair every 4-6 days. Use a cream conditioner after every shampoo, combing it thoroughly through the hair and leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing. If there is oil on the tissue paper, it means you have oily hair otherwise your hair is dry. Dry hair should be washed with a gentle shampoo. Massage the scalp to stimulate the follicles and loosen dandruff/dirt that may be clogging the pores. Dry hair is often caused by too much time in the sun, chlorine, salt water, over-shampooing, permanents, heat styling, or neglect. Protection from the elements is the next step in treating dry hair. Use a soft brush for dry hair, taking care not to tug through knots.
