Hair Types - What are the different type of hair
Hair type is determined by the hair's natural condition - that is , by the amount of sebum the body produces. Treatment programs such as perming, coloring and heat styling will also have an effect on hair type. Finding out which type of hair you possess is the first step to beautiful hair.
Natural hair types and those produced by applying various treatments are described below, together with advice on haircare where appropriate.
Thin or fine straight hair is best cut into a textured short style, or softly permed to give additional volume.
Medium textured and straight hair is very adaptable. If hair is in super condition a bob is ideal. Perming is also perfect for a full, curly look.
Fine curly hair needs precision cutting to keep it under control.
Thin, wispy hair is difficult to grow long and is often better styled shorter.
Thick and strong hair usually has a mind of its own. A mid-length cut is probably easiest to handle. Excess frizziness can be brought under control by combing with a wide toothed comb and dampening with water to re-set curls.
Different Hair Types
Colored or Permed Hair is very often more porous than untreated hair, so it needs gentle cleansers and good conditioners. Color care products help prevent fading by protecting the hair from damaging rays of sunlight. Specialist products for permed hair help maintain elasticity by giving longer lasting results.
