How Knowing Your Natural Hair Type Adds to Building A Hair Regimen (4c, 4b 4a hair friendly)

When you think about your hair type do your see 4c hair, 4b hair, or 4a hair. Do yo see type 4? Wait do you know how to tell which hair type you have? Its important to know what you hair type is cause that is an important contributor to a successful hair regimen. Along with other contributors such as porosity, density, elasticity and others hair typing is like the foundation to a building a regimen. Many naturals feel its not important however if I will say if I didn't figure mine out, I would be completely lost and well I wouldn't be Nappyfu.

Its a system that helps to direct you. Hair type systems are good for learning about your hair or what could potentially be best for it, but it's not an absolute standard. Use it as guidance and always go by what you know works best for your hair. I support the hair typing system and knowing what your hair type is. It helps you to relate to other naturals in the community to.
