View Full Version : Underside of my hair has a different texture than the rest?

The hair that grows from the back of my neck is a lot more coarse and thick than all the rest of my hair, I wonder why this is? Maybe everybody's hair just grows this way, I don't know, I've never analyzed other people's hair that closely haha, so is any of yours like that too? I was thinking that maybe it's because that part doesn't get as much attention as the rest, like all the brushing and shampoo and occasional straightening/styling.here's an example of the outer part of my hair so you can see how much smoother it looks:https://31.media.tumblr.com/582acbc54388cc0af520d42a638c0df2/tumblr_n67fhtjxUH1qjsugao1_500.jpgand here's some from the underside, which doesn't actually look as coarse as it usually does because I straightened it this morning but you can still tellhttps://31.media.tumblr.com/efda91f59773b3ed5affe3988be90bab/tumblr_n67fhtjxUH1qjsugao3_500.jpgit's a really noticeable difference, I'm pretty puzzledhttps://31.media.tumblr.com/efda91f59773b3ed5affe3988be90bab/tumblr_n67fhtjxUH1qjsugao3_500.jpghttps://31.media.tumblr.com/236a27f1a1a96df837a8434b77a9c711/tumblr_n67fhtjxUH1qjsugao4_500.jpgbut man, I'd love to somehow make the rest of my hair feel as thick and strong as that one part!

Lots of people have different textures in their hair. I have waves on the top layer at the back, and the under-layer is straight! It's perfectly normal.

Yep- mine's the other way round, finer/straighter underneath, coarser/wavier canopy. Lots of people seem to have a difference.

Oh I never even realized. Well that's cool to know, thank you :)

My hair is the same. Very fine and smooth slightly wavy hair on top but I have much coarser hair that is almost curly at the back near the nape of the neck ^^

My under canopy is wavier than the surface layer of hair and it's annoying because it likes to tangle itself so much! Plus it always looks frizzier....
