3C or a 4A hair type. What is this number game actually? I cleared my concept by

wave or curl pattern should be considered because it help to determined hair types.
Hair texture can be classified as fine, coarse and medium.
Hair elasticity is how far your hair can stretch, healthy hair can stretch up to
50% and dry or damaged hair stretch like 20%. Hair elasticity is classified as high,
normal and low.
Hair density is the total amount of hair strand on the head, and in a human is about
100,000 to 150,000 hairs. It’s classified as thin, medium and thick, if hair is
thick then its high in density. Porosity in hair is the ability or capacity for
it to absorb moisture. Hair with high porosity absorbs moisture more easily than
hair with low porosity and hair with low porosity is harder to process and can resist
perms or colours. Wave pattern is classified as straight, slightly curly, very curly
and tightly coiled. Race and ethnicity are not important in analysing hair.
