What’s up kings and queens.
I want to kind of take it back a little bit because I’ve been referring to hair type hair texture in my other videos and I’ve gotten a lot of responses and feedback and questions about figuring out what your hair type is. So today’s episode is strictly all about finding your hair type and learning how to figure that out.
So now, when we talk about hair type and texture, the natural hair community has pretty much adopted it. Just one method that was created by Andre Walker, who was Oprah’s hair stylist and in his book that he made he created what is now known as the hair chart or the hair type chart.
So before we get into it I asked you guys what you thought about the hair chart, and here are a few really honest comments that I had on my Instagram page Shawn, Shawn E Reddick said, “I’m not all the way in with it, and it’s only because we have a mixture of hair throughout our head.
One side doesn’t represent the same curl pattern and naturally sis whereby this and I have to correct my client, her left side, maybe for a and back, maybe for C or whatever just an example that I rather deal with porosity levels to explain how To treat the hair with products, not convinced that I understand their message.
James Obsession commented; “I actually really appreciate the chart because to me it makes it even easier to describe what’s going on with my hair and even more so for someone with different textures, I mean, isn’t it much easier to say it’s 4 cm our crown area before an over here. Rather than sitting there all day trying to explain at least with the chart? A person has a good idea of what I’m talking about all right.
So here we have the tracking chart. Now it starts with your one, which is bounced right here, and it goes all the way to your for C, which is pretty much my picture and a lot of people have questions about where’s my hair. I don’t understand how to assess this. This is accurate, you know, whatever the third packing chart is basically meant to just have a frame of reference for what texture you are.
So if you obviously have a pro, you know you eye you’re not in the one you’re, not in the twos. You are doing a three so forth right and if you have straight hair you’re not in the trees or the forest, so it just kind of helps.
Everybody has a little bit more dialogue now when it comes to being very specific about what your hair texture is. You usually have about three textures on your hair. For me, I’m somewhere between 4a 4b and 4c.
I got a little bit of everything going on in this hair, but that’s okay. I know what it is. I can have conversations about it. I can easily express what my texture is with someone who isn’t a professional and we can have a dialogue. That’s not super technical.
Now, there’s another hair typing chart, that’s like L o. Is it really complicated? Even for me, I don’t get it. There are other ways to assess the hair outside of this. But what you need to know about this chart is a few things.
You can pretty much go from here all the way to here by a few different ways, chemically thermally, and if you just damage your hair too much, then to get that straight now. You can also go from over here to over here.
If you do, a chemical process called perming. Okay, now I know most people think of time to point straight up. Here it’s not a perm when you permanently curl your hair, so that it has a definition and people do that believe it or not.
Everybody doesn’t always want to go from this way to this way. So if you do do a chemical straightening, your hair will permanently become the a bit of what it is and it won’t ever get back to that unless you cut it or you grow it out now the same thing can be said: if you do a thermal straightening on your hair and take it from somewhere over here now when it comes to thermally straightening your hair from taking it somewhere in here to over here to one.
You have to be very careful with the amount of times that you do that and the frequency, and how often you do it, because that could also permanently take your hair here and you won’t be able to come back to where your natural texture is.
So when you hear about hegemony, it’s primarily because someone has straightened their hair expensive time in one fitting and also excessively over a period of time a few months a year, something like that.
Usually the devil comes in when you wear extensions or when you just only have textures here in the natural space, and you go from here every week, every two weeks, every day you straighten your hair.
Things like that you’re going to you’re going to permanently have straight hair. Now, how do you go back if you want to go back from here to here? The only way you can really go back is to cut it off.
It’s never going to curl back after you have taken the texture away, which is why it’s very important to understand what your texture is and what your limitations are.
So I will recommend, if you are over in this area, straightening your hair here, maybe a few times a year. If you are going to do it very regularly, try not to put heat on the same section more than two passes in one sitting.
Also, don’t use oils on your hair when you’re straightening it out. I know, madam CJ Walker showing us a long time ago. You grease the hair first, you salute the grease on there and then you go with your hot comb or your heated tool and you straighten it out.
What’S been doing its frying, the hair so you’re going to you’re going to permanently pick your hair from here to there and you’re going to fry it to permanently stay in this section, and you won’t get your texture back now.
Another thing that I want to address is how do you assess where your actual texture is versus? You know over time, the hair does straight now it does. You know, get looser things like that.
You want to pretty much look at the first like two inches of your root, and that is normally going to tell you exactly what your natural hair texture did now, when Andre Walker made his chart, he did include two very important sections.
He did not include 3c, which is right here and he did not include 4c and I feel some type of way because I’m an f4 c6 always included. So I get why a lot of people don’t like to sharp because they don’t feel like it accurately represents their hair texture, it’s a sign. At the end of the day, someone was mine enough to say hey.
We need another two girl patterns in here, because a lot of systems do not have an including unit, so they put three C here which is more of your Corley. This is like my hair goes right here I mean it’s now gonna happen.
For me, that’s okay because I know how to do my hair, but this texture is a really nice texture, because it can straighten a little bit easier and get over here.
But then it also still has a lot of that definition and that fullness and that you know big, beautiful, complete spiral, figure, eight kinds of curl and now 4C is another section that wasn’t included, and you know there’s so many women that are in this section and either don’t know it because they permanently relaxed their hair or they straighten their hair on a regular basis or they’re, not really sure how tight their curls pattern.
Oh, it’s just kind of free to microscopic size, but then you can still twirl it in the 4C, my hair is also for a bit. I also color it and what the color does is it also stretches the curl pattern out so once again, going back to any permanent services, any chemical services they’re going to move your hair to shore down a few notches to closer to one.
So you have to be very, very careful with your color services and your chemical services and your heat services, because if you do want to keep your curl pattern, then you want to make sure you just don’t overdo it.
Okay, now, what’s not included in this chart, are a few other ways that you can type your hair. One way is density. How much hair do you have on your head? I have some clients that have three times the amount of hair as the average person, and I have some clients who, sadly enough don’t have the average amount of hair.
That all goes into density. How much per square inch of hair? Do you have on your head? So you have normal thick or thin, so you can say my hair is a thicker density or you can say my hair is a thin density and I am fourteen, so that helps also to explain what you have another way to talk about your hair is the thickness of the strand, so you have the thickness of the amount of hair you have and then the thickness of each strand of hair. So when you look at one strand of your hair, you can pretty much assess if it’s thick, thin or normal, based on comparing it to the thickness of a piece of thread.
Okay, so if your hair is about the same and feel as a piece of thread, it’s pretty normal if it’s spinners and a piece of thread, and you would consider it to be fine if it is thicker than the piece of thread, then it’s of course, so, like Asian hair, which is pretty much over here and one or two, is very thick in the texture of the hair, it’s very coarse, but it’s also straight so you can say I have very coarse hair, but it’s in the one series or it’s in a 2a And you can also say, but the density is very thick.
So these are different ways to really assess the hair is not just about the hair texture necessarily, but it’s also about how much hair you have and how thick each strand of your hair is to then be able to decide what does my hair need? The last thing that you want to think about is porosity.
Does your hair absorb moisture or water, or does it repel it usually very coarse, hair, repels moisture it does not hold on to water, so you have to do a lot more work with putting the moisture in which makes it dry and now some hair is very Porous it does collect, moisture really easily and so that hair it does better when it is curly, it does better when it has a color on it.
It does better when it is naturally dry, because then it absorbs the moisture and it can hold in whatever products implement. It so these are that’s the fourth way that you can assess what your hair is doing. So the chart itself is a very easy visual way to analyze. Alright, I’m somewhere around here, you don’t have to be exact when you’re, comparing what your hair is, but it’s good to know so that you can talk about it correctly now.
Porosity density textures are also other ways to explain what your hair does so get to know. Those terms as well because they do help when you’re communicating what your hair needs and why and it’s better for you to know what you need for your hair before you.
Let someone else do it, because then you can explain alright, this is what my hair does. I’ve been living with this hair all my life, so these are the things that it does, and it just makes me easier to converse with. That was a lot. I hope you took it in and I hope it wasn’t too much for you, but what I do want to say and on a good note is that it is cool to help you identify how to treat your hair.
So, on that note, thanks, I hope you learned a lot.
