Coily Hair

THE SCIENCE BEHIND
COILY HAIR

Highly variable cuticles lead to multiple
textures within hair follicles and
create a mixture of hair alignments, or coils.

Flattened elliptical follicle shape
leads to more fragile, thin, and
weaker hair that is difficult to manage.

The cortex contains high levels of both,
paracortical and orthocortical cells,
leading to an varied mix of water absorption.
