In part one of the hair typing series, I broke down the various aspects of hair typing: curl pattern, porosity, texture, density, and elasticity. But now the question is…how do you put this information to use?
The easiest way to explain this is to use myself as an example.
Like so many I was completely confused and a little overwhelmed when I first went natural. Everyone was throwing around terms, products I had to try, and declaring curl types left and right. Needless to say, I purchased product after product…that didn’t work for my hair type.
That is when I started to take the time to truly understand my hair. You can say I built a relationship with my hair. And not just the Andre Walker Typing System, which is limited in utility. I learned about various aspects of hair typing so I could better understand how to moisturize and style my hair. And that is when I had my major breakthrough.
