For many women, their hair is their pride and joy. From straight and fine to thick and curly, every girl’s hair is beautiful in its own way. However, different hair textures may have some limitations. Some tend to frizz quickly, while others can’t hold a curl. You can’t control the type of your hair and its texture, but you can learn to work around them. Regardless of your hair type (whether it’s is curly, kinky, wavy, or straight), there are three different types of hair textures: fine, medium, and thick. The texture is not how your hair feels. It describes the thickness of each strand. The comparison is typically based on a piece of thread. If your hair is fine, it is thinner than a thread. If it’s medium, it has the same width. If it’s thick, it is coarser.
• Fine Hair
Fine hair is considered as the most fragile texture because it can be easily damaged. It also tends to be oilier than other hair types. Thus, it may find it difficult to hold a hairstyle. Furthermore, it can fall flat against your head for the reason that it is so light.
• Medium Hair
Medium hair covers your scalp very well. It is known as the most common type of hair texture and usually looks thick. It is not as fragile as thin hair, so it can be manipulated into different hairstyles easily.
• Thick Hair
Also known as coarse hair, thick hair is strong and usually takes longer to dry than other types of hair texture. It can be resistant to various chemical treatments, can tolerate heat well, and resist breakage. It also appears full and holds styles well.
The key to a healthy main is knowing the natural hair types, their textures, and how to care for them. In general, there four basic hair types: straight, wavy, curly, and kinky. Each has a dozen different subcategories with very fitting descriptions.
