Your Hair's Texture: Is it Fine, Medium or Thick? How to Find Out

By October 5, 2008

Follow me on:

I just bought Nick Arrojo's new book, "Great Hair" and it's full of fun tips. Arroyo is from TLC's "What Not to Wear," which I hate to watch because an ex-boyfriend said I should go on the show. Here's a great tip from his book:

To figure out your hair's texture, grab sections of it on the top, sides and back and watch how it falls when you let go. If your hair falls flat and limp, you have fine hair. If your hair sticks up straight or if it poufs up and away from your scalp and face, you have thick textured hair. Anything in between is medium texture.

Naturally blonde hair tends to be thinner in texture, while dark hair tends to be thicker.

Typically when you think of Made from Earth you think of organic and healthy hair products but I tried the Tea + Protein Shampoo because even though I have a lot of hair, it is fine and I heard it aids in the strength and vitality of the hair follicles. I have to say that I have loved this product! I even got my mom using it, and my best friend.

I have tried other products of this line as well, and have similarly enjoyed the results!
