“Hey! Your hair is stunning”- Random Stranger; this is what every woman wishes for. As a result, you should treat your hair with great care. This includes not only regular visits to the hairdresser, but also the use of proper cosmetics such as shampoo, conditioner, masks, oils, and other items. Due to the large number of products available, selecting the best hair care cosmetics is difficult. That’s why first and foremost, you must correctly identify your hair type; only then can you select the appropriate products for your hair.
The following are factors that can help you figure out what kind of hair you have:
The diameter of your hair, also known as the breadth of your strands – how thick or thin each individual strand is-is the first step in establishing what type of hair you have. Fine, medium, and thick hair is the three most common varieties. It can affect how well your hair holds styles and responds to certain products. Hairstyles for fine hair typically don’t hold up well, making use of backcombing and a lot of extra-strong hairspray necessary. Thick hair keeps its shape nicely, but it’s more difficult to style because it’s less elastic. Medium hair, on the other hand, is best because it keeps its style and is very easy to style. Knowing these things will assist you in deciding which items to pursue. If you’re not sure which category you belong in, there’s a simple way to figure it out.
Fine hair is defined as hair with a diameter of less than 0.06 mm, according to fine hair specialists. Fine hair is more susceptible to heat styling equipment, more prone to damage, and less resistant to high temperatures. Fine hair also has the disadvantage of being devoid of volume, limp, and prone to becoming greasy more quickly. As a result, fine hair necessitates the most delicate of treatments.
Wavy and curly hair
When we talk about hair texture, we also mean the shape of your hair, whether it’s straight, wavy, or curly. Because straight hair doesn’t require extra attention, we’ll concentrate on curly and wavy hair. Hair of this type is typically coarse, dry, frizzy, porous, and lackluster.
We all know that if your scalp isn’t in good shape your strands will be weak, which is why scalp care isn’t simply a recommendation; it’s a need. However, evaluating the health of your scalp may be more difficult than it appears, because you may have both an oily scalp and dry, split ends.
Your hair will be dry, lifeless, and coarse if you have a dry scalp. You usually only wash your hair once a week. Dry hair can be caused by a number of factors, such as over-processing from color or lighteners, excessive use of hot tools such as flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers, using a harsh or low-quality shampoo, or simply not caring for your hair properly.
Oily scalp Oily hair is flat, oily, and heavy, and it needs to be washed every day. Your hair is shampooed every 4-5 days or even every day. An oily scalp is the most common cause of greasy hair. That’s why some people (those with more “active” sebaceous glands) may have a perfect blowout for eight days, while others (those with less “active” sebaceous glands) have to deal with an oil slick after just a few hours.
