A lot of people do not know the difference between thin hair and fine hair. To understand your hair better, you also have to understand the texture of the hair. Regardless of whether your hair is straight or curly or wavy, you have a hair texture. It may be fine, it may be thick or it may be thin. Before you start with all the hair styles and hair prepping, you should know what category your hair falls into and then decide the products that you would be using on them. A lot of people get confused by what texture is. Contrary to popular belief, texture is not how the hair feels like, but instead it is how each strand of hair is like when compared to a piece of thread. If your hair is fine, it is thinner than a piece of thread!
