As a Natural Hair Stylist for over 25 years I have talked about texture and it’s description for all of my stylist years. Andrea Walker has created a useable chart and description of hair types. I know you will find this helpful.
Natural Hair Types
One of the most widely used hair classification systems today was created by Oprah Winfrey’s hair stylist, Andre Walker. He talks about his system in his book “Andre Talks Hair”. His system is the original & the one we still refer to classify hair textures. I hope our Natural Hair Type page helps you classify your Natural Hair type!
