Pelo Bueno, Pelo Malo

A HUGEEEEEEE and silly topic/debate in the natural hair community is good hair vs bad hair.

According to whoever, good hair is silk textured, curly hair, that is easy to comb and doesn’t tangle (I Guess:/). Bad hair is extremely tightly coiled hair that tangles easily a.k.a Nappy, and often lacks sheen. 


In my opinion, there is no such thing as good hair or bad hair. I personally think that it’s all in the way that you care for your hair. Of course, you can’t change the texture of your hair; however, you can manipulate your curls using products that add shine, moisture and  help prevent damage.

I have 4a-ish, 4b-ish hair at the top and middle, and 4c at the back. I love that I can manipulate my hair to have bigger or smaller curls.

Often times when we are transitioning, one of our first questions is “what is my curl pattern?” If your hair is like mine, you may have 2-3 different curl patterns. Some parts of your hair may have a looser curl, while other parts have a tighter curl. Finding the best products can be challenging, but fun nonetheless as you’re allowed to experiment.

**DISCLAIMER: You could become a product junkie like me!** 

Again, a big part of determining the correct products for you begins with determining your curl pattern. Check out the charts below.
