Fine hair feels thin on texture and lacks natural body and bounce. Fine hair can be straight or wavy. The diameter of each individual strand is fine, it does not indicate the number of hairs on your head. Surprisingly those with fine hair actually have more hairs on their scalp than any other hair texture. This is due to there being more room for them thanks to the thinner strands. The best way to add body and shine to fine hair and to avoid associated limpness is wash your hair daily.

If you have medium hair, it will feel thicker in texture than fine hair, both in the individual strands and in terms of the overall volume of hair on your scalp. Medium textured hair can be straight, wavy or curly. Medium textured hair needs slightly more moisture than fine textured hair due to its wider diameter. The best shampoos and conditioners for this hair type are moisture balancing, that balance the needs of drier and older ends and newer roots. It is also a good idea to use a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment once a week to restore and maintain elasticity and shine. However, if your hair is very damaged and dry from chemical processing and/or frequent heat styling, treatment twice weekly is recommended.

Coarse hair feels rough in texture and it may feel like you have a lot of it. Coarse hair can be straight or curly or frizzy. The diameter of coarse hair is the largest of all textures, which makes it more prone to moisture evaporation and dry ends. The best products to use are those that are labelled as ‘re-moisturizing’, ‘moisturizing’ or ‘smoothing’ and those that tame frizz.

Which of the above most describes your hair?
