Okay so I felt compelled to write a topic on this since so many people seem to want to bash hair typing.
**As a licensed stylist & a student studying in the medical field the first thing I will say is it is IMPERATIVE to do your own research on things! Anyone can post anything on the internet & that does not mean that it is true. Hair is a science, as are our bodies so do research, take a chemistry & anatomy class, hit the library or look up some scholarly articles.
Okay, back to it hair typing. So hair typing seems to catch a super bad rap in the natural community cuz some people feel that it causes “division” or that its a “sham” or some “marketing ploy.”
The purpose of hair typing is not to put others on a pedastal & deem others less than because they weren’t “blessed with good hair” (whatever that means cuz good hair is healthy hair!), the purpose is to help you understand where to begin with your hair! So I’m gonna break it down for ya’ll a little bit & then you guys head out & research!
