  • Here is a list of common words used when describing black hair.
  • If you have “Natural” hair, then you don’t put any chemicals on your hair. If you have “Relaxed&quot; hair, then you put chemicals in your hair. For a white person, a perm will usually curl the hair. For a black person, a perm will straighten the hair.
  • Weave refers to artificial hair that is attached to your hair. Weave can be sewn or it can be glued to your head.
  • Wigs and Ponytails are very convenient. You hide your hair under the wig by using a wig cap. The material is like a stocking or hosiery, but it fits your head and not your legs..
  • People with natural hair are able to wear twists and dreadlocks.
  • Braids can be done with synthetic hair or with human hair. Synthetic hair tends to have a hard texture and most of the time a person can tell that it is not real. Human hair has a softer texture and looks more natural. Each piece of fake hair is braided or twisted with your real hair. The process can take 8-10 hrs. For professional braiders it may take up to 6hrs. Some people have more than one person braiding their hair and that process can take up to 4 hrs.
  • Here are some common phrases that you may hear.
