Natural Hair Care
  • During the 2013 Legislative Session House Bill
    3409 passed, creating Natural Hair Care as a
    field of practice under the Board of Cosmetology.

Training Module
  • There is no formal education (school) required
    to qualify for natural hair care certification.
  • A training module has been provided to help
    familiarize individuals with the necessary
    information to practice natural hair care, in
    addition to the Oregon Revised Statutes and
    Oregon Administrative Rules governing Natural
    Hair Care Practitioners.

  • Natural Hair Care includes the following
    procedures when performed upon human hair,
    natural fibers or synthetic fibers

Braiding Sewing
Cornrowing Twisting
Extending Weaving
Lacing Wrapping
Locking Hair Extensions
  • Natural Hair Care does not include penetrating
    chemical hair treatments such as

Hair Coloring Hair Straightening
Hair Joining Permanent Wave Styles
Hair Bleaching Hair Bleaching
Hair - Defined
  • Natural (human) hair - an appendage of the skin
    which is a slender threadlike cylinder of
    impacted protein and keratinized cells that is an
    outgrowth of the epidermis layer.

Hair Functions
  • Primary function - to insulate the body from the
    heat and cold and to protect the head from injury
    and physical trauma.
  • Secondary function - adornment.

Hair Structure
  • Human hair is divided into two parts
  • Hair Root
  • Hair Shaft

Structure - Hair Root
  • The hair root is located below the surface of the
    epidermis (outer layer of the skin) and composed
    of five main parts.
  • Follicle
  • Arrector Pili
  • Sebaceous Glands
  • Bulb
  • Papilla

Structure - Follicle
  • The follicle encompasses the hair root and
    determines texture and curl formation.

Structure - Arrector Pili
  • The arrector pili is an involuntary muscle
    attached to the underside of the follicle. The
    muscle is sensitive to fear or cold which causes
    it to contract.

Structure - Sebaceous Gland
  • The sebaceous gland provides the follicle with
    natural oils or sebum which adds luster and
    pliability to the hair and scalp.

Structure - Hair Bulb
  • The hair bulb is located at the very bottom of
    the hair root which fits over and covers the

Structure - Papilla
  • The papilla is a small root area at the base of
    the hair that is filled with an ample supply of
    rich blood and nerves and nourishes the hair and
    stimulates growth and regeneration.

Structure - Hair Shaft
  • The hair shaft, also known as the stem of the
    hair, consists of three main layers which
    project above the epidermis.
  • Cuticle
  • Cortex
  • Medulla

Hair Shaft - Cuticle
  • The cuticle is the outer-most layer of the hair
    shaft which consists of flattened keratin cells
    and amino acids that protects and seals the inner
    structure of the hair and creates shiny, smooth,
    silky feeling.

Hair Shaft - Cortex
  • The cortex is the middle layer of the hair shaft
    which is the thickest part of the shaft and is
    filled with melanin, keratin, protein cells, and
    microfibrils that gives hair its color, length,
    strength, resilience, and moisture content.

Hair Shaft - Medulla
  • The medulla is the innermost core of the shaft
    which consists of sponge-like baggy cells that
    are found in thick, course hair and can be
    non-existent in very thin, light-colored hair.

Hair Growth
  • There are three distinct cycles to normal hair
  • Anagen
  • Catagen
  • Telogen

Hair Growth - Anagen
  • Anagen is the active growing phase when the bulb
    is moving up through the follicle and new hair is
    being produced. This phase can last up to seven

Hair Growth - Catagen
  • Catogen is the transition or resting phase after
    years of growing when the hair cells stop
    reproducing and the hair begins to lose moisture
    and separates from the papilla. This phase can
    last up to two weeks.

Hair Growth - Telogen
  • Telogen is the shedding or resting phase when
    the bulb is totally separate from the root and
    new hair cells divide and multiply creating a new
    hair shaft. This phase can last up to four

Hair Characteristics
  • There are two general characteristics of hair
  • Type
  • Texture

Hair Characteristics - Type
  • Hair types are basic forms and general
    characteristics of hair fiber which are
    classified into four variations.
  • Straight - round
  • Wavy - oval to round
  • Curly - almost flat
  • Kinky or Coiled - flat and spiraled

Hair Characteristics - Texture
  • Hair texture is the measurement and curl
    configuration of a hair fiber resulting from
    three characteristics.
  • Diameter
  • Porosity
  • Elasticity

Hair Characteristics - Diameter
  • Diameter refers to the size of the individual
    strands of hair and degree of coarseness or
  • Course hair - largest in diameter
  • Fine hair - smallest in diameter

Hair Characteristics - Porosity
  • Porosity is the hairs ability to absorb
    moisture through the cuticle into the cortex. The
    degree of porosity is directly related to the
    condition of the cuticle.
  • Low porosity - referred to as Hydrophobic.
  • High porosity - referred to as Hydrophilic.

Hair Characteristics - Elasticity
  • Elasticity is the hairs ability to stretch and
    return to its original size and shape without
  • Normal elasticity - springy and lustrous
  • Dry hair - stretches only 1/5th its length
  • Wet hair - stretches up to 50 of its length

Hair Characteristics - Regions
  • There are four bone structures on the cranium
    which results in the variation of hair texture.
  • Occipital
  • Parietal
  • Frontal
  • Temporal

Hair Characteristics - Occipital Region
  • Occipital is the bone that forms the back of the
    cranium indenting above the nape.
  • Hair in the occipital region is tighter in its
    coil configuration in addition to being dryer,
    more brittle and easier to break.

Hair Characteristics - Parietal Region
  • Parietal is the two bones that form the sides
    and top of the cranium.
  • Hair in the parietal region has a great variety
    of diverse textures.

Hair Characteristics - Frontal Region
  • Frontal is the bone that forms the forehead.
  • Hair in the parietal region has a great variety
    of diverse textures.

Hair Characteristics - Temporal Region
  • Temporal is the two bones located on either side
    of the head directly above the ears.
  • Hair in the temporal region displays a soft or
    fine coil, is less brittle, and the spiral
    pattern may vary from a very tight to loose or
    medium to large corkscrew pattern.

Diseases and Disorders
  • Diseases and disorders may either be infectious,
    an allergic reaction to chemicals or an
    autoimmune response. Each disease or disorder has
    its own specific symptoms or conditions.
  • Practitioners should look for any type of
    abnormalities of the scalp prior to providing
    services and advise the client to seek medical
    attention if necessary.

Diseases and Disorders
  • Diseases and disorders can be accelerated by
    internal or external trauma such as physical
    stress or hormonal or chemical imbalances.
  • Hair may be diminished by the weakened condition
    or traumatized state of the scalp resulting from
    a disease or disorder.

Diseases - Fungus
  • Fungal organisms are characterized by itching,
    scales and sometimes by painful circular lesions.
  • The following forms of Fungus are contagious and
    can be easily transmitted from one person to
    another by the infected skin scales or hairs that
    contain the fungi which spread the disease.
  • Tinea Capitis
  • Tinea Favosa

Diseases - Fungus
  • Tinea Capitis - red papules or spots at the
    opening of the hair follicle. Patches spread and
    the hair becomes brittle and lifeless, breaking
    off leaving a stump, or shed from the enlarged
    open follicles.

Diseases - Fungus
  • Tinea Favosa (favus) - Dry, sulfur-yellow,
    cuplike crusts on the scalp which has a peculiar
    odor causing bald patches that may be pink or
    white and shiny.

Diseases - Parasites
  • Parasites are living organisms that feed, grow
    and thrive on or in a host organism.

Diseases - Parasites
  • The following parasites are contagious and can
    be easily transmitted from one person to another
    from contact with the infected hair and scalp by
    hats, combs, brushes and other personal articles.
  • Pediculosis Capitis (head lice)
  • Scabies (itch mite)

Diseases - Parasites
  • Pediculosis Capitis - head lice which feed on
    the scalp causing itching and when scratched can
    cause infection.
  • Scabies - itch mites which burrow under the skin
    causing inflammation, blisters and pustules and
    when scratched can cause infection.

Diseases - Pathogenic Bacteria
  • Pathogenic bacteria is a one-celled organism
    that causes disease and infection when entering
    the body.

Diseases - Pathogenic Bacteria
  • Straphylococci is a contagious pathogenic
    bacteria that infects the hair follicle and can
    be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact and
    unsterilized tools and implements. The two most
    common types of straphylococci are
  • Furuncle
  • Carbuncle

Diseases - Pathogenic Bacteria
  • Furuncle - a pimple or boil perforated by a hair
    that produces constant pain. 
  • Carbuncle - inflammation of the subcutaneous
    tissue similar to a furuncle but larger.

Disorders - Dermatitis
  • There are two scalp disorders that manifest
    similar inflammatory and topical conditions.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Psoriasis dermatitis

Disorders - Dermatitis
  •   Seborrheic Dermatitis - a skin disorder or form
    of eczema caused by an inflammation of the
    sebaceous glands or an inflammatory reaction to
    some commonly used hair products.
  • The scalp is red, inflamed and itchy with white,
    creamy, yeast-like film or patches that coat the
    scalp causing light flaking of dead skin cells
    resembling wet dandruff.

Disorders - Dermatitis
  • Psoriasis Dermatitis - an inflammatory condition
    that results from an autoimmune disease of the
  • The scalp is red and irritated and covered with
    patches of silver white scales.

Disorders - Pityriasis
  • Pityriasis, also known as dandruff, is a
    microscopic fungus that feeds on the scalps
    natural oils and creates byproducts that cause
    irritation on the scalp.
  • There are two types of Pityriasis
  • Pityriasis Capitis Simplex
  • Pityriasis Steroids

Disorders - Pityriasis
  • Pityriasis Capitis Simplex - classic dandruff
  • The scalp is itchy, dry and flaky resulting in
    scattered skin cells which are visible flakes on
    the hair and shoulders.

Disorder - Pityriasis
  • Pityriasis Steroids - severe dandruff similar to
    seborrhea dermatitis.
  • The scalp is red and inflamed with large, greasy
    or waxy scales which are combined with sebum
    causing white creamy patches to stick to the
    scalp. When the scales are removed with a comb,
    bleeding or oozing of sebum may result.

Disorders - Alopecia
  • Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that
    mistakenly attacks the hair follicle during the
    Anogen or Telogen growth phase, which causes
    abnormal hair loss, balding or reduced hair
  • There are several types of alopecia depending
    upon the location on the head, how it evolves on
    the scalp and its underlying causes.

Disorders - Alopecia
  • Alopecia Totalis - small, round patches of hair
    loss progressing into total scalp hair loss. 
  • Alopecia Universalis - complete loss of body

Disorders - Alopecia
  • Androgenetic Alopecia - slow decrease in hair
    density with a reduced hair diameter
  • In men it is generally located at the parietal
    front and progresses to a horseshoe-shaped
    outline at the crown of the head to the occipital
  • In women it is generally located at the crown of
    the head and at the temples.

Disorders - Alopecia
  • Alopecia Areata - sudden or sometimes
    unrecognized falling out of hair in patches or
    spots. These areas are usually lighter in color
    due to poor blood supply and will usually grow

Disorders - Alopecia
  • Diffuse Alopecia - radical and sudden hair
    loss of the entire scalp followed by thinning of
    the hair density which affects both men and
    women but primarily young females. This hair loss
    is temporary and the hair will grow back as long
    as the hair follicle remains active.

Disorders - Alopecia
  • Postpartum alopecia - temporary hair loss for
    three to nine months after pregnancy due to
    sudden changes in hormone levels returning to
    normal within a year.

Disorders - Alopecia
  • Traction Alopecia - rapid permanent scarring or
    balding on the scalp due to continuous pulling of
    the hair too tightly over a long period of time
    resulting in the hair being literally pulled out
    of the follicle, taking out the hair root and
    bulb and destroying the hair shaft. This hair
    loss is most apparent in the frontal and temporal
    regions and can also affect the nape area.

Disorders - Canities
  • Canities is the term for graying hair which is a
    loss of natural pigment or melanin in the hair.
  • There are three forms of canities
  • Congenital
  • Acquired 
  • Ringed Hair

Disorders - Canities
  • Congenital Canities - due to lack of melanin in
    the hair which exists at or before birth and will
    occur in albinos and occasionally in people with
    normal hair.

Disorders - Canities
  • Acquired Canities - due to the aging process,
    during the telogen phase the follicle and bulb
    shrink reducing the process of hair pigmentation
    or melanin. This may also occur prematurely as a
    result of genetics, prolonged anxiety, illness or

Disorders - Canities
  • Ringed Hair (salt and pepper) - a variety of
    canities characterized by alternating bands of
    grey and pigmented hair throughout the length of
    the hair strand.

Disorders - Trichoptilosis
  • Trichoptilosis are split ends of the hair which
    start as small cracks in the cuticle that deepen
    into the cortex.

Disorders - Tichorrhexis Nodosa
  • Tichorrhexis Nodosa is knotted hair which is a
    brush-like spreading out of the fibers of the
    broken-off hair along the hair shaft. It is a
    dry, brittle condition that includes formation of
    nodular swelling along the hair shaft and breaks

Styles and Techniques
  • Natural, protective or transitional styles and
    techniques used in natural hair care.

Styles and Techniques
  • Some styles take many hours to complete. More
    complex styles are not disposable to be casually
    brushed out, and with proper care can last up to
    three months.
  • Some styles create a small amount of tension on
    the hair and if properly started there should be
    no pain, discomfort or irritation to the scalp.

Styles and Techniques
  • If the following occurs to the natural hair,
    permanent damage may be caused
  • Improper tension
  • Excessive amount of hair extensions
  • Braid styles worn too long

Styles and Techniques - Weaves
  • Weave - a style achieved by adding hair, either
    natural or synthetic, to the existing hair to
    either protect, add a new dimension or cover
    balding or thinning spots.

Styles and Techniques - Extensions
  • Extensions - a style achieved by securing wefts
    or strands of human hair, synthetic hair or a
    combination of both to the base of the clients
    natural hair to add length, volume, texture and

Extensions - Natural Hair
  • Natural Hair - Advantages natural hair appears
    more realistic, has a greater durability and
    tolerance to heat from a blow dryer, curling iron
    or hot rollers and can be custom colored or
    permed to suit the client.

Extensions - Natural Hair
  • Natural Hair - Disadvantages natural hair
    reacts to exposure to light by fading, to
    humidity by either frizzing or losing its curl,
    and will break or split if mistreated by harsh
    brushing, backcombing, or excessive use of heat.

Extensions - Synthetic Hair
  • Synthetic Hair - Advantages synthetic hair is
    particularly strong and durable and can simulate
    natural hair with a lustrous look and feel, is
    generally less expensive than natural hair and
    the color is timeless. The style will not change
    with exposure to humidity.

Extensions - Synthetic Hair
  • Synthetic Hair - Disadvantages synthetic hair
    cannot be exposed to extreme heat. Coloring
    synthetic fibers is not recommended due to
    traditional hair colors not being compatible, and
    some synthetic hair is so shiny it looks

Styles and Techniques - Afros
  • Afro - a style of tight curls on long or short
    wavy, curly, coiled or highly textured hair.

Styles and Techniques - Afros
  • Afro-twist extensions - a style achieved when
    human or synthetic hair fibers are anchored to
    the natural hair with a braid-and-twist
  • Afro weave - a style achieved by attaching
    textured hair which is on a weft and sewing it to
    the designated cornrow with cotton thread.

Styles and Techniques - Braids
  • Single braid - a style achieved when hair is
    divided into three equal sections that are
    intertwined or weaved into one single braid.
  • Casamas braids - a style achieved when single,
    large extended braids, with a tight stitch, are
    tapered and/or curved at the ends.

Styles and Techniques - Braids
  • Cornrow and canerow braids - a style achieved
    when underhand, three-strand braids are
    interwoven to lie flat on the scalp and can be
    designed and sculpted into varying patterns with
    or without extensions.

Styles and Techniques - Braids
  • Braid-out - a style achieved when the hair is
    braided either wet or dry and then opened to
    create a crimped texture-on-texture effect with
    added volume.

Styles and Techniques - Coils
  • Coils or comb twists - a style achieved when
    small sections of natural hair are spiraled with
    fingers or a comb to create individual formations
    of tight, cylindrical coils.

Styles and Techniques - Coils
  • Nubian Coils - a style achieved when naturally
    or naturally curly or textured hair is curled
    into a cylindrical shape with a comb or hands.

Styles and Techniques - Locs
  • Locs (dreadlocks) - a style achieved when
    natural textured hair is meshed, intertwined and
    interlaced to form a solid cylinder and separate
    network of hair.
  • Nu-locs - a style achieved when yarn fiber is
    single-braided, giving the extension a matte
    finish to look like locs.

Styles and Techniques - Twists
  • Bantu knot - a style achieved when the hair is
    double-strand twisted or coil twisted and wrapped
    around itself to make a knot and secured by bobby
    pins or elastic bands.
  • Bantu knot out - a style achieve by a bantu knot
    which has been dried and released creating a
    style with spiral curls.

Styles and Techniques - Twists
  • Flat twist - a parted row of hair that is
    first divided into two sections and then twisted
    and interwoven to lie flat on the scalp. It can
    be in varying patterns with or without extensions.

Styles and Techniques - Twists
  • Double-strand twist - a style achieved with wet
    or dry hair divided into two sections and then
    overlapped to create a twisted rope effect (dry)
    or a textured effect (wet).

Styles and Techniques - Twists
  • Twist set (two part set) - a style achieved when
    done on natural or transitional hair, twist
    extensions, weaves, wigs or locs which is a
    double-twist and then set on rods which can only
    be placed at the end of the hair or loc.

Styles and Techniques - Twists
  • Twist curls - a style achieved on textured hair
    and done by using a double-twist technique on wet
    hair to define the textured curls and waves.
  • Twist-out - a style achieved by a double-strand
    twist, on any size and length of wet hair. The
    dried twists are opened and unraveled to add
    fullness, volume and a crimped effect.

  • The only tools that may be used for a natural
    hair care service are the hands or simple devices
    such as
  • Combs
  • Needles
  • Clips
  • Working Boards
  • Scissors may only be used to trim synthetic
    fibers or hair extensions as necessary.

Tools - Combs
  • Finishing comb - is usually 8-10 inches long,
    works well on fine or straight hair and is used
    when trimming synthetic fibers, hair extensions
    or sewn-in weave extensions.
  • Large-tooth /wide-tooth comb - medium to large
    distance between the tooth range to allow curly
    hair to move between the rows of teeth with ease.

Tools - Combs
  • Tail comb - tapering tail or handle used for
    parting hair for braiding, weaving, sectioning
    large segments of hair and opening and removal of
  • Double-tooth comb/detangling comb - two rows of
    teeth used for separating the hair as it combs,
    to limit tangling and snarling on wet curly hair.

Tools - Combs
  • Pic Comb - long, widely spaced, rounded teeth,
    made of metal, plastic, wood or ivory and
    designed for lifting and separating textured and
    curly hair, such as Afros and human hair

Tools - Clips
  • Long Clips - used to assist in the service to
    separate large sections of hair.
  • Butterfly Clips - used to assist in the service
    to separate small and large sections of hair.

Tools - Curved Needle
  • Curved Needle - the curve directs the point of
    the needle away from the head used for weaving
    thread for braids, weave styles and weaves for
    getting close to the scalp without harming the

Tools Working Boards
  • Hackle Board - Flat board with fine, upright
    nails used for combing through human hair
    extensions to detangle or blend colors and
  • Drawing board - a flat leather pad with very
    close, fine teeth that sandwiches and secures the
    human hair to allow the needed proportion to be
    drawn from the board without disturbing the rest
    of the hair while braiding.
