Just like different skin types require different skin care products and routines, so do different hair types. When it comes to ethnic hair care, understanding your hair type is key to allowing your hair to look and feel its best.
There are three main types of ethnic hair – fine, coarse, and a combination of the two. Fine hair is thin and often lacks natural body and bounce, while coarse hair is rough in texture. Combination hair is thicker in texture, both in the individual strands and in the overall volume of the hair on the scalp.
Protein treatments play a very important role in ethnic hair care as they help maintain a beautiful, healthy head of hair. Your hair type will determine how often your hair requires conditioning. For example, oily hair will need far less conditioning than coarse hair.
