Happy Hump Day Naturalistas!!!!!
Whats your hair type? What do you know about the Natural Hair Typing System? Well at first I sure DIDNT know anything!! I know many of you may be on the online hair forums wondering what exactly is 3a 3b 4 hair right? Well look no further….
Many naturals are interested in learning their hair type. Andre Walker is famously known for creating a hair typing system. Andre Walker is also an Emmy award-winning stylist who is known for his work with Oprah. Andre Walker’s hair chart shows four different variations of texture that includes: straight to kinky, Type 1 through 4. Most people find Andre’s system controversal. So, since then Naturallycurly.com which is a greatly known natural hair site has redone the hair chart to include more breakdowns under the types of hair.
Type 1=( Straight Hair)
Type 2A-C (wavy hair)
Type 3A-C (curly hair)
Type 4A-C (coily/kinky hair)
So why does hair typing exist today? Do you think it’s a positive or negative thing? Is the hair chart used simply as a chart of curl pattern? Many Naturalistas may associate their curl pattern as a means to care for their hair, but is that really what it should be used for? What are your feelings on this?
