Hey lovelies. This is for all my natural haired girls out here who are having a tough time understanding their hair. When you make the decision of joining the natural hair lifestyle either by transitioning or the big chop the first thing you need to find out is your hair type.. Yuppie even hair has its types they majorly range from 3a, 3b, 3c, 4a, 4b, 4c.It’s up to you to find out which is yours. The process shouldn’t be very hard. After finding out your hair type the next step should be finding out your hair porosity. When you have successfully found out your hair type and hair porosity, grooming and nurturing your hair should be a piece of cake. All you have to do is find out the do’s and don’ts of your hair…….. Below are the common ways to find out your hair type and hair porosity.
HAIR TYPE .
To find out your hair type all that needs to be done is plucking out a strand of your hair and pay close attention to the pattern of the curl of that strand.
The 2a-c hair type has loose curls, the 3a-c hair type has medium curls and the 4a-c type has tight curls.
To find out your hair porosity all you have to to is take a little test which is the hair porosity test. This test doesn’t take even the slightest bit of time all you have to do is after you wash your hair, pluck out a strand of your hair and put in a bowl of water, there are the incident that can occur, it’s either
- The strand floats
- The strand remains stagnant at the middle of the bowl of water, or
- The strand sinks and settles at the bottom of the bowl.
Hope this was helpful to somebody….. ❤️❤️
