Any Sister familiar with Dominican Hair Salons knows
you leave the salon with your hair bone straight;
able to blow in the wind — for real.
Dominican stylists give — hands down — “the best damn blow out!”
Dominicans are a mixture of African, Spanish, Native American.
The Carribean Sister is familiar with a variety of hair textures.
…and they will whip out that crack cream (relaxer) in a heartbeat.
In the early 1970s from Hispaniola: A Case History in Multicultural Madness
— Dominican sociologist Daysi Josefina Guzman identified 15 kinds of hair
textures. Her scale went from bueno (good) for soft Caucasian hair to
malo (bad) for kinky, Negroid hair.
Here’s a peek at her crazy hair spectrum:
1. Lacio – straight & smooth
2. Achinado – stiff hair
3. Espeso – thick, abundant & slightly wavy
4. Macho – thick & strong, abundant but without luster
5. Rizado – thick and fine with small waves but dull
6. Muerto – thin and greasy
7. Ondulado – wavy
8. Vivo – thick, dry & out of control
9. Variable – indescribable
10. Crespo – thick & frizzy
11. de Pimienta – peppery, growing slow & tight to the skull in small balls
12. Motica – like peppery hair but thin, wavy
13. Pegaito – so close to the skull that it is impossible to comb

corners of the planet…
