I am going to tell you all my knowledge about Vietnamese straight hair since straight hair is main texture of Vietnamese hair.
There ARE pros and cons to having a thick, dark mane.
As far as various hair types go, straight Vietnamese hair has got to be one of the most stubborn hair types there is. (#Blessed.) Although typified as dark and thick, some are also under the misconception that straight Vietnamese hair is one of the easiest hair types to style. However, the term itself is a lot more diverse than it lets on—as being Asian isn’t confined to being oriental, or having East Asian roots—and, as you might have guessed, there’s a lot more nuance to Vietnamese hair, just as there are with natural hair or curly types
What are the Characteristics of Straight Vietnamese Hair?
For the purposes of this article, we’re taking Vietnamese hair to mean the stereotypical thick, dark and straight texture we’re mostly familiar with. We also asked the help of an expert, Unilever North America’s Senior Manager for Hair in Research and Development, Leon-van Gorkom, to help break down and further understand this particular hair type.
1. General features of straight Vietnamese hair.
According to Gorkom, Vietnamese tresses are typically “straight, with very round and thick fibers and with a high level of black melanin.” This is rather important to know when shopping around for a new hair color, as this means bleach almost always has to be involved when dyeing your hair. Something to keep in mind: “It is harder to change color [of Vietnamese hair] due to its high levels of melanin. It requires a professional-strength bleach/developer (persulfate booster/40 vol. bleach) to reach a desired lift, and may sometimes have to be done more than once,” he added.
2. Other distinguishing characteristics of Vietnamese hair.
What your momma told you was probably true, and our experts agree. Compared to other hair types, it’s indeed “thicker and stronger,” Gorkom confirms.
3. Best ways to care for Vietnamese hair.
Knowing the general makeup of Vietnamese hair can definitely help us make informed decisions as regards our hair styles and hair color of choice. Mostly though, it impacts our day-to-day hair care routines. Knowing that this hair type is thicker might urge us towards products with more moisturizing or detangling benefits, as well as those that clarify from buildup, as residue can make hair feel limper and heavier. Gorkom also suggests a less frequent use of color, so we avoid less internal damage to the strand. Remember to condition regularly and lay off on over bleaching; otherwise, as with all other hair types, have fun and get creative!
