Is Your Hair Curly Or Straight?

A simple test to learn more about your hair

What this is testing:

Hair curvature

Why this is important

When you have very curly hair, the hair strands' twists and turns require special care.

What You’ll Need

The visuals below on the computer screen, a hair strand, a small cup of water

An illustration of 3 circles on grey background - 2 of them have hair in it and the third one is empty

Results

If less than ½ of the hair strand is within the circle, your hair is mostly straight and needs conditioning that helps to align and protect hair from damage.

If at least ¾ of the hair strand is within the circle, your hair is mostly curly, and needs moisturizers that help seal and smooth cuticle edges, define curls, and control frizz.
