Straight hair texture is identified by its lack of a defined curl pattern. Resistant and full of shine, this hair texture easily absorbs the scalp's natural oils while distributing them evenly through the hair shafts to nourish them. Because moisture and hydration are easily absorbed by straight hair, this type of hair is less prone to split ends, breakage and dehydration. To keep this type of hair vibrant, regular shampooing and conditioning is recommended to prevent oil buildup. Regular deep conditioning treatments and choosing lightweight, multi-purpose products that won't weigh hair down are recommended for this hair.
