Understanding Your Unique Hair Type

Understanding Your Unique Hair Type

Reading time: 3 minutes

Do you struggle with frizzy hair or finding the right hair products? You're not alone. Understanding your unique hair type is the first step towards having healthy and beautiful hair. This guide will explore different hair types and textures to help you discover the secrets to your locks.

Identifying Your Hair Type

Let's start with the basics—identifying your hair type. Your hair type determines its natural shape and pattern: straight, wavy, curly, or coily. Knowing your hair type lets you select a hair routine to enhance its natural beauty.

Importance of Hair Density in Styling:

The density of your hair is an essential factor in determining its volume and thickness. Hair density refers to the number of hair strands on your scalp per square inch. This aspect of hair health is often overlooked but plays a significant role in how your hair looks and behaves. 

Tailoring Hairstyles to Your Hair Density:

  • Volumizing products and layering techniques can give the illusion of fuller hair for those with low-density hair.
  • Medium-density hair is versatile, as it allows for a wide range of hairstyles and cuts to be achieved.
  • High-density hair requires more maintenance to prevent it from looking overly bulky, but it provides plenty of styling and volume options.

What and Why Does Hair Porosity Matter?

Hair porosity refers to how well your hair can absorb and retain moisture. Knowing your hair's porosity level can help you choose the right products, prevent damage, and maintain healthy, hydrated locks. There are three main levels of porosity: 

 Low porosity hair: Tightly packed cuticle layer, making it difficult for moisture to penetrate. 

Medium porosity hair: A balanced cuticle layer, allowing it to absorb and retain moisture effectively.

 High porosity hair: Gaps and holes in the cuticle layer, causing it to absorb moisture quickly but lose it just as fast. 

Tailoring Hair Care Routine to Your Hair Type

1) Combatting Frizz:

 If you're struggling with frizz, choosing products that provide intense hydration without weighing down your hair is essential. To tackle this issue, you can try using HairYoga Treatment Serum, a hydrating serum that can be incorporated into your daily hair care routine. This serum is formulated with active ingredients like Hibiscus and Brahmi that help protect the keratin in your hair and restore the moisture and shine often lost due to colour, chemical treatments, and pollution. Apply a small amount of the serum to damp hair, focusing on the mid-lengths to ends, to tame frizz and restore vitality.

2) Promoting Hair Growth:

If you're looking to promote hair growth, incorporating essential oils into your routine can be highly beneficial. The Hair Yoga Duo Oil is formulated with a potent blend of essential oils known for promoting hair growth and comb to improve scalp health. Regular scalp massages with this oil can help strengthen the hair follicles and promote healthy, luscious locks.

3) Hydrating Dry Hair: 

If your hair feels dry and dehydrated, you can use hydrating products to add moisture. After washing and conditioning your hair, apply a generous amount of Hairyoga Oil Serum to damp hair. This serum not only locks in moisture but also increases hair density.
