Quick Tip: Want to know your hair texture? Compare your strands to a piece of thread. Strands thinner than thread would be considered fine, larger than thread coarse, and similar in size to thread would be medium.
Fine hair tends to be the smallest where strand width and diameter is concerned. It is also the most fragile, so caution should be used when chemically processing the hair; as it takes to chemical treatments very quickly and can easily be over processed. Fine strands are often present among tightly coiled naturals. When selecting alternative styles such as braids or twists, these manipulated strands can often show more scalp.
Medium hair tends to be average in size with the diameter of the strands falling between coarse and fine. These strands are less fragile and better able to handle chemical treatments and tend to show less scalp when manipulated.
Coarse hair is the largest where strand width and diameter is concerned and is also the strongest. Theses strands will be more resistant to chemical treatments often requiring higher heat, longer processing times, and gels with stronger holds to create your desired styles.
