What is Hair Density, Texture Why Does It Matter?Hair Thickness
Hair thickness refers to the diameter or width of individual hair strands, a critical factor in understanding and caring for your hair. Hair can be categorized as fine, medium, or coarse based on thickness. Fine hair strands are smaller in diameter, often more delicate and prone to breakage. Medium hair falls in between, striking a balance in terms of strength and flexibility. Coarse hair, with a larger diameter, tends to be more robust but may face challenges in terms of porosity and styling. Determining your hair thickness helps tailor your hair care routine, product selection, and styling techniques to meet the specific needs of your strands, promoting overall hair health and vitality.
- Fine Hair: hair is delicate, easily damaged, and should avoid heavy products that can weigh it down.
- Medium Hair: is neither too thick nor too thin, strong, and elastic, allowing for the use of multiple products without weighing it down.
- Coarse Hair: is the strongest with wide strands, making it more resilient and less prone to damage.
Hair density refers to the number of strands on your head, ideally around 2,200 per square inch. To check, pull a section of hair or observe it naturally. Low density reveals the scalp, requiring light products like foams or mousses. Medium density is versatile, allowing various products. High density hides the scalp, allowing heavy products like creams to hold curls together.
- Low-density: hair shows the scalp easily, requiring light products like foams or mousses to enhance volume.
- Medium-density: hair falls between thin and thick, allowing flexibility with a variety of products to enhance texture.
- High-density: hair conceals the scalp, permitting the use of heavier products like creams to hold curls together.
Regardless of your curl pattern, hair texture, or hair density, remember this rule of thumb: the thicker and coarser your hair, the more substantial the product required. Conversely, individuals with thin and low-density hair should opt for lightweight and sprayable formulas, while those with thicker hair may benefit from heavier and creamier options.
