View Full Version : What texture is my hair?

Hi everyone :) I'm trying to determine my hair type but I can't decide if it's fine or medium. What do you think?

Looks a lot like mine! I vote medium ^-^

I'm going to vote Fine to Medium :o I think I once read that hair is usually considered Fine when you hold a single hair between your fingers and you cannot feel it, Medium when you can barely feel it and Thick when you can feel the hair obviously between the fingers. But it can be very subjective in my opinion and can vary allot whenever someone has very sensitive fingers for example.

You can't say from afar on a picture if it is F, M, or C. You have to decide that for yourself; sorry.

As far as texture goes, I think it's 1c/2a.

Fine hair would have a smaller appearance, like a baby's hair.

I agree with lapushka. You can't really tell from afar. It looks like type 1c/2a to me too.

I think it's more likely to be medum than fine because you can see some individual hairs in the photo, whereas fine would look more like a mass of hair blending into one (I think). But again, it is really difficult to tell from a pic! We've had a couple of interesting threads discussing this, let's see ...


Hopefully there's something in there that will help you decide :)

There is always the strand thickness test you can try if you have a lot of patience and a reasonably steady hand http://science-yhairblog.blogspot.com/2012/06/is-your-hair-fine-medium-or-coarse-how.html
