The Science of Curly Hair

Have you ever wondered what makes some people’s hair curl?

According to research, curly hair is said to start from the follicle. Hair follicles are the root from which each hair strand grows. Each one contains a number of different functions to help hair growth.

The difference between curly and straight hair is this; where straight hair comes from a circular-shaped follicle, curly hair comes from a follicle in an oblong or oval shape.

Because of this - as the hair grows out, it grows asymmetrical, leading hair to curl as it grows and reaches a certain length.

So what does this mean to you? Well, if you have curly hair, this is the reason it grows as it does; which, while not really a problem unless it is to you personally, can make it hard to control or tame into a particular hairstyle you might want.

There are a number of things which you can do to make curly hair more manageable; which we cover in “Our Guide To Dealing With Curly or Frizzy Hair”. As well as this, if you do have curly hair and you’re looking to use pomade, we can recommend using a product which contains beeswax.

This ingredient is organic, healthy, and naturally hydrating to the hair strand. This means that it can keep your hair in place by hydrating the hair and encouraging it to stay in the position you want it to stay in.

You can check out our Original Hair Pomade, made using beeswax, right here on or, alternatively, on Amazon.
