Hair exists in a variety of textures. The 3 main aspects of hair texture are its consistency, curl pattern & volume. Decoding one’s Hair texture requires sound knowledge &skill sets that comes with rigorous training and practice.
The module takes one through a range of theories pertaining to the curl patterns of hair, presence and variation in the levels of disulfide – a very round shaft allows for less disulfide bonds to be present in the hair strands. This means the bonds present are directly in line with one another, resulting in straight hair. Also included in discussions is the hair follicle’s circumference as a factor in affecting curl patterns. The common consistencies of hair – fine, medium, and coarse, are determined by the hair follicle volume and the condition of the strand. These, and more form a part of Hair Texture module at the Play Academy Courses.
