Understanding Your Hair Type: How to Tell if Your Hair is Dry or Oily

We all have different hair types, and understanding yours is the first step to achieving healthy and beautiful locks. One common categorization is based on how much oil your scalp produces. In this blog, we will explore the different hair types and learn how to tell if your hair is dry or oily. So, let's dive right in!

Identifying Normal Hair
- To determine if you have normal hair, grab a tissue and press it against your scalp.
- If you find tiny stains of oil on the tissue, congratulations, you likely have normal hair.
- Normal hair is the perfect balance, not too oily and not too dry.
- Caring for normal hair often involves maintaining this balance through a good hair care routine.

Recognizing Dry Hair
- For those with dry hair, the tissue will tell a different story.
- If there are no oil stains at all on the tissue, your hair is dry.
- Dry hair often appears dull and frizzy and requires extra attention and moisturizing.
- We'll discuss tips on how to care for and revive dry hair in the next section.

Understanding Combination Hair
- Combination hair can be a bit tricky to identify.
- You may notice a large oily stain or a few tiny stains on the tissue.
- This type of hair combines both dry and oily characteristics.
- Balancing the two extremes requires a targeted approach to hair care.

Determining Oily Hair
- Oily hair is the opposite of dry hair, and it's relatively easy to spot.
- If you see a large oily stain on the tissue, your hair tends to be on the oily side.
- Oily hair can appear greasy and flat and often needs specific treatment to reduce excess oil production.
