Types & Textures
There is a difference between the terms “hair type” and “hair texture”.
Hair texture indicates the circumference of your hair shaft. It may be fine, medium, or thick/coarse.
Hair type depends on your hair structure. There are four official categories of hair types:
- straight hair (type 1)
- naturally wavy hair (type 2)
- curly hair (type 3)
- very curly and kinky hair (type 4)
Also, depending on its thickness, your hair might be considered to be fine or coarse. Terms “thin” and “thick” hair define the density of the follicles.
