Texture Shot

My hair is damp and freshly detangled here (this is an old hair shot too that I fumbled across while looking at my fotki album:


This is why I always say my hair looks like a month old twist out lol.  Because I think it does.  And this is also why I don't do the whole hair typing thing on the Andre scale with all that 4a and 4b mess because my hair doesn't neatly fit into any of those categories. I always preferred the  LOIS hair typing scale because it more accurately describes my hair pattern.  My hair is not uniformed and has like a thousand things going on at one time.  That is why I think I have a hard time detangling my hair when it is longer (it can take anywhere from 4 hours to 10 or more on a bad BAD day), the multiple hair textures+ having porous hair which means my cuticles are not laying flat, which encourages my hair strands to be rough and intertwine....I just have a lot of factors working against me and not with me.

But anyway, on the LOIS scale, my hair is a mostly O and S patterned, with L's sprinkled  in there too.  I borrowed this from http://www.tytecurl.com/v02/hairtypes.htm.so you can figure out your hair pattern too:



Find Your Pattern:

L - If the hair has all bends, right angles and folds with little to no curve then you are daughter L.

O - If the strand is rolled up into the shape of one or several zeros like a spiral, then you are daughter O.

I - If the hair lies mostly flat with no distinctive curve or bend you are daughter I.

S - If the strand looks like a wavy line with hills and valleys then you are daughter S.

You may have a combination of the LOIS letters, possibly with one dominant. If you cannot see one letter over the others, then combine the letters. Example: LO or IL or OS..


You can't tell me that this isn't easier?

  2. What up twin! lol. Yeah, that hair typing thing is ridic. I don't think there are too many people who fit neatly in any of those categories...

    I know my hair has some type of curl definition but not uniformed enough to be called 4a and not undefined enough to be 4b...meh...

    Anyways, thank you for the love hun and thank you for stopping by! Don't be a stranger :) We hair twins gotta stick together :P
