You can help determine your hair texture by using a piece of thread. Compare that piece of thread to a strand of your hair. If the hair is thinner than the thread, then you are fine-textured. If both are equal, then it is medium, and if it has a bigger diameter than a thread, then it is considered coarse or thick hair.
