The truth is, there are several different hair types, ranging from fine, soft, and wavy to thick, coarse, and curly. The main difference between them lies in how much moisture each type prefers. Some prefer dry hair while others like moist, humid hair. If you’re curious to know which hair type you belong to, here are all the major four categories:
1. Fine, Soft Hair (2-3A)
These are usually the most straightened or relaxed hair types. They typically require less curling irons and styling products and therefore tend to be easier to maintain. These hair types can range anywhere from 2A to 3A depending on how well moisturized they are. As such, they can also be either dry or moist.
2. Coarse, Wiry Hair (2B/3B)
This hair type has tightly coiled follicles, and thus requires a lot more time to style compared to other hair types. While this hair type can still look great if properly cared for, it does take longer to grow because these hairs need more moisture to stay healthy. Unlike the previous hair type, these hair types will benefit from regular oiling sessions with an anti-frizz serum. It should also be noted that these hair types often suffer from breakage due to its thickness.
3. Curly Hair (3C/3D)
While some may consider this hair type difficult to manage, I find that once you learn how to properly handle it, it’s actually pretty easy to tame curls. For those who want to try growing thicker hair, this is the hair type that you should start with. This hair type takes longer to grow and needs lots of TLC during the process.
4. Combination Hair Type (4a/4b)
Combination hair types fall somewhere in the middle between fine and coarse hair. These types of hair consist of both thin and thick strands which makes them appear thicker than they actually are. In order to achieve the desired result, you’ll need to combine two things: proper hydration and good-quality hair products.
Why is 4c hair so hard to grow?
For those looking into getting their first set of hair extensions, you might be wondering why you’d even bother going through the hassle of having real hair cut off and then putting artificial ones on. The answer is simple: to create the illusion of fullness at your roots. If you’re new to the world of wearing hair extensions, you probably won’t realize that you’ll need to follow certain rules in order to make sure that your hair looks realistic. One of these rules is to ensure that your hair is clean before applying any form of weave. Dirty hair simply doesn’t blend right. Another rule that applies to anyone who wants to wear fake hair is to always keep the hair length below the chin to avoid creating a “fake” fringe effect around your face. Another reason why 4c hair is so hard to grow is because of its thickness. Thick hair tends to weigh down the scalp, making it harder to distribute the nutrients evenly throughout the entire head of hair. To solve this problem, you can opt for a 4a hair type instead, since the latter has thinner strands. However, if you want to go one step further and experience fuller volume, you can choose to grow 4b hair, which has thicker strands.
use texturizer on short hair?
One thing that everyone loves about 4c hair is its ability to add instant volume and body without requiring too much work. There are three ways you can do this: Apply texturizer regularly. Texturizers come in various forms, including spray sprays, cream gels, mousse, and shampoo. When applied to damp hair, texturizers help increase volume by adding extra weight to your strands. You can apply texturizer daily or weekly according to your preference. However, it’s recommended to only use texturizer every few days or weeks to prevent over-styling and damage caused by frequent usage. Condition with texturizing product. Using a texturizing product together with your usual conditioner helps boost hair volume and adds shine. Use a volumizing mousse. Volumizing mousses are specially designed to enhance the overall appearance of hair by increasing density and thickness. These products contain elements that promote increased blood circulation to the scalp, resulting in healthier, shinier hair. It’s worth noting that although there are several different varieties of 4c hair, no matter what kind of hair you have, you can still have beautiful, lustrous hair by following these tips. Just remember to treat your hair to the appropriate care routine and never neglect the importance of conditioning.
