It’s hard to separate our hair care routine from our hair texture. We follow bloggers who have similar textures to our own. We seek out advice tailored to our textures, and we buy products customized to our own textural needs. So what happens when our texture changes? Today we explore potential causes for textural transformation and how to cope with a texture switch up.
Causes of texture change
Pregnancy is one of the most well-known culprits of texture changes.The hormones can tighten or loosen your curl pattern. The impact of pregnancy on your hair depends on a number of factors, so it’s impossible to predict how your hair will be affected.
Heat damage is another common cause of hair texture transformation. Excessive blow drying or flat ironing may cause curls to go limp. Depending on your styling habits, you may observe that some parts of your hair keep their natural curl pattern while others have loosened.
If you’re in the process of growing out a relaxer, it’s not uncommon to see changes to your hair texture. These changes may or may not be permanent. You’ll want to observe your hair as it continues to evolve.
Similar to pregnancy, the changes in hormonal composition that accompany age can cause changes to hair texture.
Now that we understand why your hair texture might change, here’s what you can do to cope:
The first thing they you’ll want to do is get to know your hair again. Do a porosity test. Map out your texture. If it feels necessary, you can even get an expert opinion from a stylist.
