It should be understood that hair is the same part of our body as the heart, skin or hand, so you should first think about their health. First of all, it is necessary to make the correct diagnosis and prescribe treatment. The logical chain leads us to the origin – the definition of hair type.

The classical classification of hair is made according to several criteria:

1. race;

2. structure;

3. color;

4. the degree of activity of the sebaceous glands.


It’s no secret that, depending on the race, a person has his own special set of genetic characteristics, including the quality of hair.

Caucasians belong to the Slavic hair type. Strands of such people can be wavy and straight, from light to dark shades, moderately thick and voluminous.

Mongoloids are Asian hair type. By their nature, they are thick, thick, dark in color, for the most part smooth.

Negroids are of the African hair type. They are characterized by small, hard curls of a dark color.

Australoids are generally a combination hair type that can include any of the characteristics listed above.

Disulfide bond structure or strength

The internal structure of the hair can be classified according to the appearance of the section of the hair.

Direct – there are no disulfide bonds in the structure, the cross-section of the hair is round. This type of hair is the most durable.

Wavy – disulfide bonds in the structure are low, the cross-section of the hair is a light oval.

Curly – disulfide bonds in the structure are high, the cross-section of the hair is a flattened ellipse. Wave diameter 2-5 cm.

Strongly curly – high disulfide bonds, hair cross-section – “peanut in a shell “. The diameter of each curl is 2 cm. Very dry and brittle hair.

Color type

Warm color type – blond and brown-haired with a golden tint, red and dark-haired with a predominance of red pigment.

Cold color type – blond and brown-haired with an ash tint, brunette with green pigment.

Sebaceous activity or the rate at which hair and scalp become dirty

Normal – healthy dense hair that is easy to comb, strong, obedient, shimmery and remains clean for 2-3 days, they are not characterized by diseases of the scalp and hair. Most often it is natural hair that is not subject to chemical treatment. For owners of this type, it is enough to maintain the current state.


Dry – brittle thin split ends, which most often survived chemical exposure. Dry hair is often accompanied by a sensitive scalp. After washing, discomfort, tightness and itching are felt. Dandruff is a faithful companion of this type of vulnerable hair. The work of the sebaceous glands is not active, so such hair retains its fresh appearance for a long time. This type requires special cosmetics to moisturize and restore the hair structure, as well as treatment of the skin, if necessary.


Fatty – hair quickly loses its attractive appearance due to overactive sebaceous glands. Such tap hair is rarely prone to brittleness, splitting and splitting. This type requires professional means to normalize the work of the sebaceous glands.


Combined Is a mixed hair type. Typically oily scalp and dry or normal hair ends. Most often, the combined type is inherent in long hair and is quite common nowadays. Similar to the dry and oily type, the combined one requires a special approach to care, which includes a complex to restore the balance of the sebaceous glands and moisturize, strengthen the hair along the length.


To determine the type of hair at home, you just need to wash your hair and observe how long it takes for the hair to become unkempt and lose its attractive appearance. If this happens within 12 hours, then apparently you have oily hair, if 2-4 days, then you have normal hair, and if it does not get dirty for about a week, then you have dry hair, and combined, as already mentioned, are considered the hair is oily at the roots and dry or normal at the ends. Also consider the thickness, curl, porosity, and the tendency to breakage and split hair. Be aware of oily or dry dandruff, or the presence or absence of itching, tightness, or other scalp discomfort.

Each type requires its own specific care and treatment. Therefore, it is important to be attentive to your symptoms. Do not forget that the type of hair tends to change during life under the influence of natural, chemical and mechanical factors; accordingly, appropriate and timely care should be selected.
