We all live in world of contradictions. For instance, women with thin hair, long for thick hair and vice versa. While, on the other hand, women with thick hair know it's trouble when it comes to hair care. However, I do agree, that thicker hair, allows you to experiment more when compared to thin hair. There are three hair types, namely, thin hair, medium hair and thick hair. To test which category you fall into, tie a ponytail.
If your ponytail's diameter is equal to a dime, then it's thin hair and if you require two fists to hold the pony, then you can be proud of your hair. If your pony is between the two, then it's medium hair. Medium hair is the most commonly found hair type, which is extremely easy to manage, but can tend towards the thin side.
