Knowing what your hair type is will help you choose the right products and find the best quality hair care routine. Sometimes it’s obvious to know what hair type you have, but sometimes it’s a little more challenging. And even if you do know what it is, knowing specifically how to care for it isn’t always clear-cut. Here are some simple ways to determine your hair type, as well as some bonus styling tips for each type.
Is Your Hair Thin?
People with thin hair tend to complain the most about it being flat, or they can never seem to get the length or volume how they’d like it. But thin hair shouldn’t be confused with dry hair, as the products and styling techniques used are different. Caring for thin hair requires a specific quality hair care routine designed to thicken and strengthen the strands. Thin hair can sometimes be difficult to style, so using hair products to thicken and strengthen the hair may give you more options since it will be easier to work with.
How To Tell If You Have Thick Hair
It’s usually pretty easy to tell if you have thick hair. If it takes you a significant amount of time to dry or brush your hair, most of the time it’s because your hair is thick and not necessarily because of your quality hair care routine. The key to caring for thick hair is to keep it hydrated with a good hydrating shampoo. Otherwise, some strands may become brittle and you won’t want to deal with the frizziness that comes as a result. Having thick hair is great because you have many styling options, but it’s also sometimes challenging to get the style you want quickly.
Other Hair Types You Could Have
Determining whether you have thick hair or thin hair is the basis of any styling and hair care decisions you have to make. However, some of the other hair types include straight, wavy or curly hair. We won’t dive into great detail about these hair types, since they are pretty evident just by looking in the mirror to know which one you have. The important takeaway is to embrace your hair type as much as you can so you can move forward with establishing a quality hair care routine that will yield the best hairstyles for any occasion.
