“I think my hair is wavy…but only sometimes? Why is that?”
This is a common question I’ve seen on wavy and curly hair groups. I thought it was worthy of its own blog post!
It’s natural for hair curl pattern to change based on the environment and how it’s treated day to day. This is true for all different types of hair. People who have hair that have looser hair patterns find that their hair looks and acts straight sometimes, and wavy other times. This can be really confusing, and makes people question what their ‘true’ hair type is.
I have a blog post that shares how to test if your hair is wavy, which you may find helpful if your goal is to help your hair look wavy all the time. I also have a blog post sharing a wavy hair curl pattern chart, which is often of interest to newbies, too. Anyway, this post is about discussing why your hair is straight sometimes and wavy other times.
