Science has had a hard time explaining why curly hair is what it is and so different from straight hair. They have finally understood: its follicles structure is completely different.

The question that was without an answer for a long time was asking what is it that breaks the hair and creates curls. As it turned out, it’s the combination of gravity, texture, and follicle shape.

Scientists have also discovered that curly hair is more sensitive to heat and that it burns easier. So if you’re a curly girl, careful with that blow dryer and hair straightener!
