Your Hair is as Unique as Your Fingerprint Beyond Hair Texture & Type, Condition & Challenge Considerations are Key Variables

MYAVANA is the Future of Healthy Hair Care. 30 years of research and thousands of strands later we know that your hair is as unique as your fingerprint. Beyond the basic hair types straight, wavy, curly and kinky, hair health challenges and condition are the most important key variables. 

The hair texture ranges from authentically raw, physically changed or chemically processed. This determines your product and technique selection in order to reach healthy hair goals. 

Damaged hair rather straight or kinky, fine or coarse is depleted in nutrients based on deficiencies detected by advanced scientific and technological observations done in The MYAVANA Lab.

In the late 1990’s we were introduced to a new way of hair categorization which viewed the different hair types from different ethnical backgrounds. Today, the hair typing system uses numbers and letters with the four main hair categories being straight, wavy, curly, and coily. 

The purpose of the MyHairID Hair Identification System is to define one's unique hair type according to your texture, type and condition which is used to accomplish the following: product recommendation, product application, styling techniques, to predict and describe how different chemicals/processes might interact with hair and the overall understanding of hair and hair health. 

MyHairID breaks down hair strand profiles into blended and combination categories:

Texture Blends

  • Fine/ medium
  • Fine/ coarse
  • Medium/ fine
  • Medium/ coarse
  • Coarse/ fine
  • Coarse/ medium

Type Blends

  • Straight/Wavy
  • Wavy/Curly
  • Curly/Coily
  • Curly/Kinky


Myavana uses scientific and technological methods to provide a comprehensive analysis and report of your hair from root to tip. We’re able to see what normal vision cannot. According to our data, it’s not uncommon for someone to have a combination of multiple hair types and textures. I am sure this is not information one would expect especially if one is predominately of a particular ethnicity. Our definition of the combination ( texture and type) allows us to truly understand aspects of your hair that are otherwise non-existent without the science and technology. 

The condition of one's hair is determined using lab and microscopy techniques which gives us a full overview of the following aspects of your hair: 

  • Hair profile health
  • Single strand knots
  • Chemical product build up
  • Physical product build up
  • Breakage
  • Splitting 
  • Degrees of porosity (low, average, high)
  • Degrees of elasticity and density

Myavana continues to be dedicated to the science of hair and the advancement of the technology used to provide us with the information we need to properly care for our hair and to understand its unique properties and requirements. Let us help you on your journey to hair nirvana while providing you with the community to conquer your hair and life stages. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your “MyHairID” please feel free to send us an email at or book a free consultation to speak with a healthy hair expert. Until next time curlfriends.

I love your concept on educating the theory of hair. I am a License Cosmologist and very interested in the study of hair. Considering the next step to be a tricolgist, but unsure where to start, by any chance do you have any suggestions on this path.
