Hair typing system

A popular hair typing system is Andre Walker’s system. Andre Walker is Oprah's hair stylist You can read about his hair typing system here 

I spent a few years wondering what my hair type was. I think it is a 4b. But honestly it really does not matter what my hair type is as long as I know how to take care of it properly. Perhaps the hair typing system allows women to be more deliberate when they are choosing hair products. I dunno. But I would encourage people with afro textured, kinky, nappy, tightly curled hair not to be too hung up on what their hair type is. Instead concentrate on finding out what works for you and your hair and stick with it.

Leave a comment and tell me what your thoughts on hair typing systems are. Do you find hair typing useful? Or is it just a waste of time? Has figuring out your hair type helped you on your hair journey?
