Hair types are not only based on the cuticle of the hair but also depends on the structure of hair follicles. Based on this structure, different hair types fall into four hair texture-based groups: straight, wavy, curling, and curly. Each of these has different looks and may suits one type of person compared to another. Some people with straight hair can choose straight cut, wavy cut, or curly cut. Curly hair types have more volume than straight hair, while those with curly hair has more bounce then straight hair.
For those hair types that have high porosity, it is more prone to breakage, frizz, and split ends. This kind of hair has high porosity so it is less likely to absorb moisture well unlike other hair types. Due to this, the cuticle layer of this hair becomes thinner making it more vulnerable to breakage, frizz, and split ends. People with high porosity hair should apply moisturizer regularly because it can help maintain its volume.
The different types of hair can either be straight, wavy or curly. Those with straight hair have no waves, curls on their hair. They are considered healthy and shiny. If you are looking for a long hair, you must go for straight cut because it can give you longer appearance.
People with wavy or curly hair have curly texture but the opposite – they have a wavy texture. Due to this difference in texture, there are different types of these hair types. People who have low porosity hair types have lots of split ends. Therefore, they need to apply more moisture to make their strands healthy and strong.
People with normal porosity do not have any split or broken strands. Their hair type is categorized as straight because it has no texture. Since their hair texture is straight, it follows that their strands are also straight. People with normal porosity have no need to worry about moisture because their strands are very soft and silky. They can easily catch a breeze.
Thin hair density is another type that has no split or broken ends. Because it is very soft, it requires less moisture. However, if you want to add shine, you have to apply conditioner frequently. It will also help enhance the volume and thickness of your strands.
Those with wavy hair are prone to split ends. This means that the natural texture is frizzy. If you have wavy hair, you need to apply more moisture so that it can return back to its original straight shape. People with straight hair do not have any problem with split ends because their strands are very soft.
The last type is oily hair. This type has oilier hair than any other and is fine when it does not fall over your eyes. If you have oily hair, you should shampoo every day and use conditioners to improve the health of your hair. This type of hair is also prone to frizziness.
Those with curly hair types are the ones that require more intensive care. You have to ensure that you do not use too much product on your hair. You should also avoid having too many hair treatments at once because this will cause build-up and frizziness. The most important thing that you should remember is that you should be able to get a straight cut every time.
Those with straight hair have the most challenging task in maintaining their curls. The most common type is the curl defining type which is characterized by curl extension. It takes a lot of time to achieve the right curl and length. Another is the loose wave which has the tendency to roll over when blow-drying. Those who have curly texture tend to experience curls that are shaped like a wave.
When it comes to coarse hair, people with finer hair tend to experience dryness. This is due to the texture and the breakage. Dry hair porosity is determined by the amount of water in the follicles. The best way to deal with this is to choose low-moisturizing hair products.
People who have kinky hair are those who have a combination of both curly and straight hair. Their hair follicles are closer together than other types. The solution to this is to use hair products that have a kinky material as base but then add more moisture by means of a gloss or a styling medium. To give texture to the hair, you can also apply a little water on the hair after blow drying it.
