I’m sure we’ve all heard or read on hair types. There’s even plenty of videos on YouTube.
So after a long search on hair type charts we could …well…borrow, we found a much more expanded & clear one at longhaircareforum.com. It was posted by a lady by the username of ”Silvergirl”. She shows the broader diversity of natural hair types.
Breaking it down:
There’s 4 hair types
Type 1: Straight
Type 2: Wavy
Type 3: Curly
Type 4: Kinky
Below is a visual description of the different hair types:
Please look here for a much bigger & clearer image.
Now I’ve noticed that most black people in SA fall under the last 5 groups of Type 4 hair: 4d-4h
I’d put most coloureds between group 2a and 4c (I stand to be corrected though). Having said that, I’ve also seen coloreds with the kinkiest of tresses.
I fall under one of the last 2 groups of Type 4 hair & still struggling to find what works for my hair in terms of regime, styling & products.
What is your hair type and what haircare system works for you?
