Hair Typing

Curl pattern, strand size, texture, what does it all mean??? Hair typing systems are simply tools used as a reference point. They can assist you (or your stylist) in hair product selection, deciding which hair techniques may work best and choosing a suitable hair style.

Some people aren’t interested in (or just outright despise) using hair typing systems. It can be a source of frustration and confusion for many. I’ve pretty much given up trying to nail down what my exact hair type is but I had to share some interesting information that I came across.

I was already aware of the 2 most popular hair typing systems (Andre Walker and LOIS) but I was not familiar with Fia. This site provides further explanation on this hair typing system. I find this system to be pretty simplistic, but that’s just my opinion. . .

Do any of you know about this hair typing system? Do you think it is more helpful than the others?

Thanks for reading. Be blessed!

Interesting system which I have never heard of. I also think it is very simplistic, roll your hair between your fingers? huh? I also hate the word coarse and I certainly wouldn't think it was a descriptor of thickness.

Can you tell I dislike hair typing lol? I always have a 'so what?' moment followed by 'tear it to pieces' moment.
