One of the beautiful things about Black hair is that it comes in all types of textures, widths, and shapes. Being such a diverse ethnic group, you really can’t label our hair as one type.

Andre Walker, known for working on Oprah’s mane, hair classification system consists of eight different hair types from straight to kinky. Usually, our hair falls into three categories: 3c, 4a, and 4b.

I know you are thinking what in the world do these numbers and letters stand for?

    African hair comes in different textures. You do not have to be mixed with anything to have fine straight or curly hair. Our race has the gene for course hair/”nappy” but it is not the hair type for the entire race. Do your research and stop listening to your hateful critics. Nothing wrong with this site.
