WHAT'S MY HAIR THICKNESS!

 

If you are not sure of your hair texture, it may be easier to do a strand test. This is a simple process that involves a piece of sewing thread. Using the thread, place a strand of hair next to it and then run your fingers along the length of both the thread and hair. Compare the thickness of the two and if your hair feels more or less the same then you have medium texture but if it feels a lot thicker than the thread then you have thick/course hair. If your hair is significantly thinner than the piece of thread, this shows that you have thin hair.
