On the contrary, it’s best to comb straight hair dry, because the resistance doesn’t outweigh how weak your hair is when it gets wet. It is good to first put things like your leave-in conditioner or oil (spray) in your hair before you comb it and your hair should be dehydrated.
If you’re upset, it’s a little less black and white. Then look especially at how your hair is when it is dry. If you have a lot of fluff or tangles, wet combing may be the better option. If it is relatively easy to get through dry and your stroke remains beautiful even after combing, then dry combing is the way to go.
7. Who shines the most?
With straight hair, the scales and the whole hair are flatter and reflect more light. With curly hair, the scales are often slightly raised, and because the hair as a whole is not flat they absorb light, this often makes curly hair a little duller.
8. What happens if you straighten or curl your hair?
There are, as it were, two types of connections that hold our hair tightly together and also keep your curls or your straight hair in shape. One is hydrogen compounds (moisture), and the other are sulfur compounds. See them as small bridges between the keratin proteins that make up your hair.
By using heat, such as a curling iron, the moisture from your hair evaporates. As a result, the bridges are broken, and the proteins move to the shape of the curling iron. These bridges repair themselves automatically, so this way of straightening or curling is only for a moment.
But even if you do nothing, the bridges will change. During the day, your hair loses moisture, but it also attracts moisture. Porous hair, in particular, where the scales that serve as roof tiles no longer close properly, has a lot of problems with this. The bridges are broken or suddenly become much longer due to all the moisture. And this goes on all the time. Your hair gets wet, your hair gets dry, only to such a small extent that you barely notice it. That is why your hair also curls when you have made a braid; the bridges are then connected again in a different way when your hair is braided. And over time, the bridges return to their old state.
If you want to change something about your hair texture permanently, then you have to work chemically. The sulfur connections are then broken and changed again. These bridges do not turn back on their own.
9. Who suffers the most from the fluff?
Fluff is not necessarily a matter of hair type. It mainly has to do with moisture. The moisture in your hair ensures that your curl shape stays beautiful, but for this, it is essential that there is not too little moisture but also that there is not too much moisture in your hair. But your hair can lose moisture and absorb from the environment, especially if you have porous hair, it can be dry and a real slurper. This will disrupt your (non-) curl pattern and create fluff. Dry hair is, therefore, the biggest reason for dust. That means that you can also suffer from frizz if you have straight hair. But curly hair is often a bit drier and more porous in itself, and therefore also suffers from frizz faster. And not to forget: The volume, curly hair has much more volume, and fluff provides much more volume.
By keeping your hair well hydrated and applying oil so that moisture is harder to get in or out of the nose, you can significantly reduce lint.
10. Who has the most to do with prejudice?
Although there are always prejudices, whether you have curls, blows or straight hair, especially with curls you suffer the most from harm and even discrimination. Fortunately, there has been some change in recent years. More and more hairdressing salons are delving into cutting curly hair. More and more products are coming onto the market, specifically for curly hair, and straight hair is no longer the norm in terms of hair. More and more women (and men) dare to embrace their wavy hair texture, and a whole Curly Girl movement has emerged, partly thanks to Lorraine Massey, creator of the Curly Girl Method.
When I started my blog, I was amazed by how many blogs and websites there is that focus purely on curls. I think it’s an excellent development! But unfortunately I also suddenly see a lot of negativity towards the straight-haired people. : ‘(. I believe that both straight hair and blow and curly hair is something to be proud of, and we should support each other and not make it a fight among themselves. Spread the love!
