3. Hair Type
There are 2 ways to find out whether your hair is thick or thin/fine.
The First Way: The first way is to measure the time taken for your
hair to dry, if it is less than one hour, it means your hair is thin/fine. If your hair takes one hour or more to
dry means your hair is thick.
The Second Way: Make a pony tail using your thumb and forefinger
to make a circle around it. Your hair is thin/fine if the circle of the size is dime-sized or less (show picture),
whereas thick hair will have a size that is about quarter-sized or more (show picture). Anything size that falls in
between this two is medium thickness.
Hair Care For Thick
The volume of think hair is always very strong and you may have some difficulties in
taking care of it. A person who has a small frame or slim face may not suit
thick long hair, as such reduce the volume of the hair should be the first step to right hair cut.
Whenever people who possess thick hair went to a salon, request your hair dresser to layered
your hair to enhance the shape and direction or even try something new by cutting a short hair or medium length
hair that are great for thick hair.
Hair care products like pomades, surfacers and strong hair gels can help to control and manage
thick hair. Highlighting of hair with contrast colours also help to break up the appearance making it less dense
that it is seen.
Hair Care For Thin
Thin hair has very small diameter that is around 50 microns/strand of hair. They tend to look lifeless although they reflect light very well making it
shine. Thin/Fine hair is much easier to damage and won’t hold curl easily.
The volume can be maximized with blunt haircuts, other products like styling gels or mousses can
also add volume to your hair. It is important to use lightweight conditioner. The shorter the cut, the better as
thin/fine hair cannot take the weight of a loner hairstyle.
