If we lived in a perfect world, women would want to be able to wake up every morning and have their hair already done or even have  someone do their hair, but unfortunantly we do not live in a perfect world and women have to wake up every morning and wash and dry and style their own hair, and take it from me, it is not the first thing you want to do when you wake up.

There are differnt textures of hair and different types of hair and the texture and type of your hair also depends on how you can stye your hair and what styles will hold or fall.

Hair texture is measured by the degree of fineness or coarseness of your hair. Hair experts generally agree that there are four major types of hair texture which are Fine, Medium, Coarse and Wiry.

The type of hair you have depends on how you can style it, and there are five different types of hair: Fine, Medium, Coarse,Thick, and Thin.

  • Fine hair is much easier to damage than medium or coarse hair. The biggest problem with fine hair is to gain volume and get hair to hold a style
  • Most people have medium hair.  Medium hair has lots of body and usually holds either a blow-dry shape or any type of hairstyle very well. It has the most styling flexibility of the three hair types. Coarse hair is often dry.
  • Coarse hair is often dry. Coarse hair needs conditioning to keep it under control.
  • Thick hair will look too bushy if cut into a short style. Layer thick your hair since layering adds mobility.

Aside from different hair textures, types and styles, there are also many different hair colors. Hair colors are different because it does not matter what the texture, type or style of your hair, anyones can color their hair any color.

There are four differnt types of hair color: Permanent, Single Process, Semi-Permanent, and Deposit Only.

  • Permanent is just what it means. This makes a “permanent” change in the pigment of the hair shaft.  It does not wash out. It will fade in time, but cannot be simply removed to “bring back” your natural color.
  • Single Process Color Is The Only Permanent Color That Should Be Attempted By The Amateur!Single process means that the color is lifted and deposited in one step.
  • Semi-Permanent color can cover gray and go darker, but can not lighten. It lasts varying lengths of time depending on the product. Suitable for amateur colorists.
  • Deposit Only color can only “deposit” color into the hair,  there are many varieties on the market for the home user.  These usually condition and color in one step.

At some point in every womans life, they have wanted to have a different hair color, or at least wondered what they would look like.  The majority of woman have actually colored their hair, sometimes it turns outlooking how they wanted it to look, however,other times it turns out looking not what they expected it to look like.  You may not like everything about your hair, and although there are some things you can’t change about it, there are also things you can change about it.
