What Does Stringy Hair Mean?
Stringy hair is when wavy or curly hair is forming lots of really thin curl clumps rather than bigger curl clumps. Stringy hair is often more limp and less bouncy than usual.
Sometimes people use stringy hair and limp hair interchangeably. While stringy hair may also be limp, they aren’t the same thing. You can have stringy hair that is not limp, and you can have limp curls that are not stringy. So, I see them as two different things. For clarity, this blog post is specifically talking about stringy hair, not limp curls.
I have a separate post on how to fix limp wavy hair if that’s the information you were seeking.
