3Natural Hair CareDuring the 2013 Legislative Session House Bill 3409 passed, creating Natural Hair Care as a field of practice under the Board of Cosmetology.
4Training ModuleThere 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.
5ProceduresNatural Hair Care includes the following procedures when performed upon human hair, natural fibers or synthetic fibers:BraidingSewingCornrowingTwistingExtendingWeavingLacingWrappingLockingHair Extensions
6Prohibitions Hair Coloring Hair Straightening Hair Joining Natural Hair Care does not include penetrating chemical hair treatments such as:Hair ColoringHair StraighteningHair JoiningPermanent Wave StylesHair Bleaching
7Hair - DefinedNatural (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.
8Hair FunctionsPrimary function - to insulate the body from the heat and cold and to protect the head from injury and physical trauma.Secondary function - adornment.
9Hair Structure Human hair is divided into two parts: Hair Root Hair Shaft
10Structure - Hair RootThe hair root is located below the surface of the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) and composed of five main parts.FollicleArrector PiliSebaceous GlandsBulbPapilla
11Structure - FollicleThe follicle encompasses the hair root and determines texture and curl formation.
12Structure - 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.
13Structure - Sebaceous Gland The sebaceous gland provides the follicle with natural oils or sebum which adds luster and pliability to the hair and scalp.
14Structure - Hair BulbThe hair bulb is located at the very bottom of the hair root which fits over and covers the papilla.
15Structure - PapillaThe 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.
16Structure - Hair ShaftThe hair shaft, also known as the stem of the hair, consists of three main layers which project above the epidermis.CuticleCortexMedulla
17Hair Shaft - CuticleThe 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.
18Hair Shaft - CortexThe 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.
19Hair Shaft - MedullaThe 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.
20Hair Growth There are three distinct cycles to normal hair growth: AnagenCatagenTelogen
21Hair Growth - AnagenAnagen 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 years.
22Hair Growth - CatagenCatogen 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.
23Hair Growth - TelogenTelogen 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 months.
24Hair CharacteristicsThere are two general characteristics of hair differences.TypeTexture
25Hair Characteristics - Type Hair types are basic forms and general characteristics of hair fiber which are classified into four variations.Straight - roundWavy - oval to roundCurly - almost flatKinky or Coiled - flat and spiraled
26Hair Characteristics - Texture Hair texture is the measurement and curl configuration of a hair fiber resulting from three characteristics.DiameterPorosityElasticity
27Hair Characteristics - Diameter Diameter refers to the size of the individual strands of hair and degree of coarseness or fineness.Course hair - largest in diameterFine hair - smallest in diameter
28Hair Characteristics - Porosity Porosity is the hair’s 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.
29Hair Characteristics - Elasticity Elasticity is the hair’s ability to stretch and return to its original size and shape without breaking.Normal elasticity - springy and lustrousDry hair - stretches only 1/5th its lengthWet hair - stretches up to 50% of its length
30Hair Characteristics - Regions There are four bone structures on the cranium which results in the variation of hair texture.OccipitalParietalFrontalTemporal
31Hair 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.
32Hair 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.
33Hair Characteristics - Frontal Region Frontal is the bone that forms the forehead. Hair in the parietal region has a great variety of diverse textures.
34Hair 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.
35Diseases 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.
36Diseases 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.
37Diseases - Fungus Tinea Capitis Tinea Favosa 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 CapitisTinea Favosa
38Diseases - FungusTinea 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.
39Diseases - FungusTinea 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.
40Diseases - ParasitesParasites are living organisms that feed, grow and thrive on or in a host organism.
41Diseases - ParasitesThe 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)
42Diseases - ParasitesPediculosis 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.
43Diseases - Pathogenic Bacteria Pathogenic bacteria is a one-celled organism that causes disease and infection when entering the body.
44Diseases - 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:FuruncleCarbuncle
45Diseases - 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.
46Disorders - Dermatitis There are two scalp disorders that manifest similar inflammatory and topical conditions.Seborrheic dermatitisPsoriasis dermatitis
47Disorders - 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.
48Disorders - Dermatitis Psoriasis Dermatitis - an inflammatory condition that results from an autoimmune disease of the skin. The scalp is red and irritated and covered with patches of silver white scales.
49Disorders - Pityriasis Pityriasis, also known as dandruff, is a microscopic fungus that feeds on the scalp’s natural oils and creates byproducts that cause irritation on the scalp.There are two types of Pityriasis:Pityriasis Capitis SimplexPityriasis Steroids
50Disorders - 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.
51Disorder - PityriasisPityriasis 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.
52Disorders - AlopeciaAlopecia 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 density.There are several types of alopecia depending upon the location on the head, how it evolves on the scalp and its underlying causes.
53Disorders - AlopeciaAlopecia Totalis - small, round patches of hair loss progressing into total scalp hair loss. Alopecia Universalis - complete loss of body hair.
54Disorders - AlopeciaAndrogenetic 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 area.In women it is generally located at the crown of the head and at the temples.
55Disorders - AlopeciaAlopecia 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 back.
56Disorders - AlopeciaDiffuse 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.
57Disorders - AlopeciaPostpartum alopecia - temporary hair loss for three to nine months after pregnancy due to sudden changes in hormone levels returning to normal within a year.
58Disorders - AlopeciaTraction 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.
59Disorders - Canities Acquired Ringed Hair 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:CongenitalAcquired Ringed Hair
60Disorders - CanitiesCongenital 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.
61Disorders - CanitiesAcquired 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 diet.
62Disorders - CanitiesRinged Hair (salt and pepper) - a variety of canities characterized by alternating bands of grey and pigmented hair throughout the length of the hair strand.
63Disorders - Trichoptilosis Trichoptilosis are split ends of the hair which start as small cracks in the cuticle that deepen into the cortex.
64Disorders - 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 easily.
65Styles and TechniquesNatural, protective or transitional styles and techniques used in natural hair care.
66Styles and TechniquesSome 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.
67Styles and TechniquesIf the following occurs to the natural hair, permanent damage may be caused:Improper tensionExcessive amount of hair extensionsBraid styles worn too long
68Styles 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.
69Styles 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 client’s natural hair to add length, volume, texture and color.
70Extensions - 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.
71Extensions - 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.
72Extensions - 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.
73Extensions - 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 unnatural.
74Styles and Techniques - Afros Afro - a style of tight curls on long or short wavy, curly, coiled or highly textured hair.
75Styles 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 combination.Afro weave - a style achieved by attaching textured hair which is on a weft and sewing it to the designated cornrow with cotton thread.
76Styles 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.
77Styles 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.
78Styles 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.
79Styles 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.
80Styles 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.
81Styles 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.
82Styles 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.
83Styles 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.
84Styles 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).
85Styles 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.
86Styles 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.
87Tools Combs Needles Clips Working Boards The only tools that may be used for a natural hair care service are the hands or simple devices such as:CombsNeedlesClipsWorking BoardsScissors may only be used to trim synthetic fibers or hair extensions as necessary.
88Tools - CombsFinishing 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.
89Tools - CombsTail comb - tapering tail or handle used for parting hair for braiding, weaving, sectioning large segments of hair and opening and removal of braids.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.
90Tools - CombsPic 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 extensions.
91Tools - ClipsLong 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.
92Tools - Curved NeedleCurved 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 scalp.
93Tools – Working BoardsHackle Board - Flat board with fine, upright nails used for combing through human hair extensions to detangle or blend colors and highlights. 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.
