UNDERSTANDING WHAT HAIR TYPE MEANS
Hair type is not solely based on ones ethnicity. However, genetic factors appear to play a major role in determining hair texture. "Natural hair" does not only apply to African Americans. All nationalities have "natural hair". Natural hair simply means free from chemicals. A persons hair type is determined by their texture, density, and porosity.
Texture is the thickness of individual strands of hair.
Density is the amount of individual strands of hair.
Porosity is the hair's ability to absorb moisture.
Understand, ones skin color does not play a role in Hair Type. All hair types are beautiful!
