How to conduct this experiment

Step 1: Take a hair strand from the middle to back of your head.

Step 2: Wet the strand of hair with water. Stretch out the hair strand and measure it, while it’s still wet.

Results

When dry, if the hair strand is shorter than the original wet length, your hair curvature indicates your hair is very curly, and therefore needs moisturizers that help seal and smooth cuticle edges to define curls and control frizz.

When dry, if hair is about the same as the original wet length, your hair curvature indicates your hair is mostly straight and needs conditioning that helps to align and protect hair from damage.
