The hair type system of Andre Walker that almost every naturalist knows was unfortunately not made to give each individual person the right information about YOUR hair needs. He created the hair chart to promote his own product line not knowing that many years later people would still refer to his hair chart.
Diffry believes that there is no problem to hold on to his chart as long as you know that it should ONLY be used to find other people with similar hair types.
Ok..but how do I found out what my hair needs are?
By doing several hair observations that will give you a better understanding what your hair characteristics are and therefore make it easier for you to decide what type of hair products you should look for.
Your hair characteristics consist of Texture, Porosity, Density and Elasticity.
Elasticity is characteristic we will not discuss for a while because we have some doubts about how important this actually is. (share your thoughts with us!)
Soon more information about your hair: Texture, Porosity and Density!
