a visible-ish scalp, medium density is not as visible as low and high density is follicle on top of follicle on top of follicle.
Density plays a major part in styling results. Someone with fine density isn’t going to have the same or even favorable results as someone who has high density when it comes to hairstyles like twist-outs or braid-outs.
5. Your water quality is different.
If your “hair twin” has soft water and you have hard water it’s going to have a huge impact on your cleansing routine. Hard water sometimes calls for specially formulated shampoo, a water-softening shower head attachment, and different techniques for getting the hair clean and free of the mineral build-up that comes with hard water.

6. Comparison is a setup for failure.
The expectation of your hair looking exactly like your “hair twin” is totally disappointing when all you used to measure the hair was the curl pattern. With hair, there is more than meets the eye. Having a thorough understanding of your hair’s texture, porosity, and density, in addition to your climate and water quality can help reign in your expectations.
Bloggers/Vloggers are still great resources for hairstyle inspiration, but don’t let the “twinning” of your curl pattern keep you from having the flawless hair you deserve.
