Vata hair is usually very curly or even frizzy and tends to kink or tangle. It may be prone to dandruff or split ends and often seems dull and lusterless.
Pitta hair is red, blonde or light brown. Early grayness or baldness is also a Pitta indicator, since it indicates high levels of testosterone, a hot, aggressive, Pitta type hormone. Pitta hair is usually thin and fine or delicate, and quite straight. Some oiliness dims its luster.
Kapha hair is mostly brown or dark brown and is thick and slightly wavy. It borders on coarseness. Oiliness is one of its chief disorders, but its luster is usually good.
