Hair is just hair? We clearly contradict this. There are many different types,each with their own specifics and should be treated differently. But they all have one thing in common:when properly cared for,they look beautiful.

Recognize hair types

Fundamental to determining the cut,color, care and styling is: what type of hair am I? Every hair has different needs and therefore needs a routine that is adapted to its structure and condition. The different hair types go from type 1 to 4 , which describes the structure of the hair.These then have gradations that in turn define the structure more precisely.A statement can then also be made about the thickness and total volume of the hair. Cam Newton hair is also unique  in their hair style.

Straight to frizzy hair

Let us start with the central criterion,namely the determination of the structure. A common method for determining hair is the theory of hair typing according to Andre Walker.Here the division begins as follows: straight hair, wavy hair, curly hair and frizzy hair.These can again be  subdivided into more categories. 

Straight hair like Emma Stone

Straight hair can be labeled with type 1a,i.e. straight hair without any movement – which is best left sleek as it is difficult to accept structural changes with heat tools.1b has a little more movement and stance.Hair type 1c,in which waves and more movement – especially at the temples and in the neck – can be seen here and there,are described.All of these types are usually close to the head and remain in their natural shape -curls are difficult to arrive and for styling, products such as hair powder or dry shampoo are beneficial to maintain grip.

Wavy hair like Blake Lively

Wavy hair then starts from 2a.In this type, the hair is slightly wavy, loose, and stretched.It is also still close to the head,but can already be processed more easily.Volume products are also useful again.With hair type 2b,the hair is already curling more, than you can see tighter waves, such as those obtained by a straight hair girl with a braid overnight. A wide variety of wavy styles can be created from these waves, which stay in top shape with gel or mousse. From 2c the hair gets individual curls and is clearly wavy, which is enhanced by curl-defining cream and anti-frizz products.

Curly hair like Shakira

Curly hair is now divided into type 3a and 3b. The lighter variant (3a) means that you have spiral curls. The curls are well defined, springy when moving and are usually strongly influenced by the climate. If you straighten your hair, put one foot in front of the door and realize it’s raining, do you panic? Do you immediately think of your fluffy hair, which is about to stand on end again? Then you are this type of curly hair. The stronger type (3b) indicates corkscrew curls. Here the hair is clearly twisted and bounces happily around the head. We have already presented you with the so-called ” Curly Girl Method ” to achieve fantastic curls .

Frizzy hair like Queen Beyonce

The last type of hair that exists is frizzy hair. These are types 4a, i.e. very tight, extreme corkscrew curls, and type 4b, which describes frizzy, voluminous hair. With frizzy hair, the correct structure and division into curls are usually no longer visible. With both types, it is advisable to use hair oil, hair butter or other moisturizing care products on a regular basis. You can also use the “Curly Girl Method” for this curl shape.

Hair thickness and volume of the hair

Hair thickness is divided into three sub-categories: fine hair (fine), medium hair (medium) and thick hair (coarse) . 

  • Thin hair is very fine, you can hardly feel it between your fingers and it is as light as silk. The diameter of thin hair is less than 5 cm. 
  • Medium-thick hair can be clearly felt between the fingers, it lies in the hand like cotton thread and is more robust. Medium hair has diameter between 5 and 10 cm
  • Thick hair is coarser and can even appear wiry. It stands out clearly from a tabletop or other surface. Thick hair is given if the diameter is more than 10 cm.
  • The total volume is then determined by the diameter of the ponytail, which is possible with your own hair. The hair type is composed of structure, hair thickness and total volume , as we have described to you above.

 A code can then be created from this, which is, so to speak, your special password for correct hair care and determining the needs of your hair. For example, such a code could look like this: 1aFi or 3bMii or 3aFi.
