    Default Hair TEXTURE!

    Just as the texture of hair varies from individual to individual, there can be combination of two or three different hair texture on the dame head. Race and ethnicity has little to do with hair texture as they do with hair colors and curliness of the hair. One can determine the texture of the hair by measuring the circumference of the hair strand. They are generally of three types:

    1. Fine,
    2. Medium, and
    3. Coarse


    Fine
    Fine hair has the smallest circumference of hair strand. Fine hair are easier to process but can easily get damaged from the chemicals and the processing services. Fine hair is weightless, flyaway and generally straight. They don't curl easily too. For fine hair, use shampoo having wheat proteins and polymers to make them look thicker by coating the hair shaft. Spray volumizer on them to create a misty shine without wilting the hair.

    Medium
    Hair with medium texture has middle-sized hair shaft. They are considered 'normal' types and can take hair-processing services and use chemicals very well. They are also the most common and manageable types. People with normal hair can use shampoo with silk amino acids for extra softness, lecithin to restore hair structure and hair repairing qualities. You can pour gels and creams for the shine in your palm and rub it in your hands and then lightly pat them over your head.

    Coarse
    Coarse hair has largest circumference of hair strand. Thicker and stronger, coarse hair take longer to process and may prove almost resistant to hair services such as coloring, perming and straightening. It looks rough too. For thick coarse hair use pomades to moisturize your hair and make them shine.

    I would say medium as well...because if it takes any longer for my hair to process ( ~10 minutes) then I'd be a bald sista! LOL

    Medium, but sometimes it seems like course (because of the NG). Probably because I'm not accustomed to dealing w/it!

    I think mine is more fine than medium.

    Regimen:
    Wash and condition weekly.
    Allow to air dry.
    Apply oils to hair and scalp.
    Gently brush through and wear a simple style.

    Pointers:
    -I allow my hair to dry almost completely before styling, brushing or combing (aside from shower detangling).
    -I trim only when absolutely necessary.
    -I only wear like one or two oils. Products are too complicated sometimes.

    I'm medium. I leave relaxers in my hair no more than 10-15 minutes. It gets my hair BONE straight too. I just knew I was coarse.
