WET HAIR STRETCH TEST
Wet about 5-10 strands of shed hair with water.
Stretch carefully and gently to evaluate elasticity.
Hair that stretches 20-30% and reverts to its original state is balanced.
Hair that stretches and does not revert to its original state is protein deficient.
Hair that doesn’t stretch or breaks is moisture deficient.
Hair that stretches a LOT and breaks is both protein and moisture deficient.
This quick test helps you “hear “what your hair is telling you. If you’re willing to listen you’ll know exactly what you need to do for your healthiest hair.
