Good hair, bad hair, shiny hair, kinky hair, straight, wavy, textured, and everything in between. Hair is a fabric and if we thought more of it this way, we would know exactly how to deal with it. There is no such thing as Good hair or bad hair. Just like there is no such thing as a good or bad fabric. There are fabrics that are better than others but each and every fabric serves a purpose and, in the case, for hair- your hair fabric can be manipulated, transformed, and improved by knowing your personal fabrics limits and it’s infinite possibilities.
Without getting too descriptive about “fabric” let’s just use good ol’ cotton as an example. Each and every one of us has a hair texture that falls into a “catergory” fine, weak, limp, thick, textured, highly textured, damaged, coarse, curly etc etc. If we use cotton as our baseline we can say that cotton fabric has the ability to stretch, to shrink, to get holes in it, to feel soft or coarse depending on how you wash it and what product you use on it right? Linen. Same. It is expected to wrinkle but we also know how to make it crisp and wrinkle free as well. Same as your hair. Once you let go of the idea that you have good or bad hair, and start thinking in terms of “fabric” you are more than half way to whatever kind of hair you want. The reality is, if you know what you have you can transform what ya got. You know your personal fabric’s limits and expectations. What it can or cannot do and what products will help our fabric perform. It’s that simple.
I am not one to drill a point to the point of no return so I am going to let this sink in. Know your hair fabric. If you don’t know ask your hairstylist. If your hairstylist doesn’t know, get a new hairstylist. There is literally a product for EVERYONE. If you have damage, there is a product to heal it. If you have curly hair that is unmanageable there is a product or service that can straighten and tame it. If you have limp fine hair, there are products and techniques that can plump and thicken. Like the finest lace, there is a way to secure it’s future with care and knowledge so that it will last the long haul. I will post some of my favorites but in the meantime. Get to know your “fabric” and stop saying good or bad when it comes to hair. Fabric is fabric. xoxo- Jules
