Hair care jargon can be really confusing. If you have ever stumbled upon a curly hair forum you will see waves of people chanting about their type from 1As through to 4Cs or about their hair porosity being low or high. But why does this matter? Knowing your hair type can help you with caring for your hair and knowing what it needs. It also makes it easier to find people with hair like yours so you can take and give relevant advice. That is how we group our hair tribes

From Pinterest to YouTube, Blogs and Instagram, so much information is out there, so this knowledge will help you to know what is right for you. Here is how you can find out your hair types.
