Knowing Your Texture

This post is going to be short and sweet. We promise!

Scientifically speaking, everyone's head produces a natural oil called sebum. The sebum's goal is to provide moisture and nutrients to the entire strand of hair, regardless of whether you have long or short hair.

Type 1: Straight Hair

If your hair is straight, then consider yourself lucky because gravity is on your side. The oils that your head naturally produces will easily make its way to the ends of your hair, providing moisture the entire way. Why does it seem like your hair is naturally greasy? It's because your hair is so efficient at getting oil from the root to the tip. You should be grateful!

If you fall in this category, it generally isn't wise to use extra oils in your hair.

Type 2: Wavy Hair

In the never ending race to get sebum from the root to the tip, wavy hair is also pretty efficient. If your hair falls in this category and you never seem to have a problem with your hair drying out or breaking off at the tips, then you likely don't need to use oils either. However, if you find that during the winter months your hair takes a beating, it might be beneficial to give oils a shot, only using them at the tips of your hair to provide maximum hydration.

Types 3 & 4: Curly & Kinky

Why are types 3 and 4 grouped together? We merged these two hair groups together because we all face the same battle! Our hair dries out so fast that it seems like there's no way our head produces oil naturally. The crazy thing is that it does! It produces just as much sebum as any other human on the planet, but because of the curlyness of your hair, it will never make it all the way to the tip.

What's in sebum that makes it so critical to your hair's health? It's basically made up of Vitamin E, some fatty acids, and wax esters. When these nutrients don't make it all the way through your hair, it loses the nutrients it needs to stay strong so it begins to dry out and break off.
