What To Do If You Have Multiple Hair Textures
Black hair can be hard to manage, but it gets much easier when you know the basics of black hair care. One of the first things you should know is your curl type, but the plot thickens: What if you have multiple hair textures?
Don’t worry; you’re not alone. This is actually a very common occurrence for people of all ethnicities! If you have a mix, say 3C curly kinky hair at the nape of your neck and 3A curly hair on top, it can be hard to manage the two different textures with just one product.
So, what can you do about this hair conundrum? Check out these tips on managing two different hair textures at once.
- The number one rule of hair care (for anyone with any hair type/types) is to be realistic and know what you’re working with. Just because you admire the 3B curls of your favorite Instagrammer doesn’t mean you can achieve those results! Embrace the hair you have and create a hair care regimen that brings out your unique, natural beauty.
- Give your hair what it needs. If you identify two or more curl types all coexisting on your head, you may need to use different styling and moisturizing products.
- A good rule of thumb is that looser curls react better to gel, while tighter curls react better to the extra moisture of styling creams. Remember that the more pronounced the curl structure of the hair strand is, the more moisture it needs, since your natural oils cannot make their way as efficiently down the hair shaft.
