This hair type is tightly coiled hair that is quite fine and fragile. It is wiry, delicate by nature and each stand usually has a zig zag pattern. This is considered to be the driest hair type, thus it is more prone to breakage and requires a gentle touch
A common misconception about this hair type is that it does not grow however, it grows at the same rate as any other texture and if not treated properly, it breaks more than other textures.
Our advice is to treat this hair type like a fine silk blouse – cleanse gently, detangle softly, and avoid harsh chemicals.
Type 3 hair is curly. If you pull a strand of a type 3 curl, you will notice it has a definite S shape. Granted, the S may be a lower case s or upper case S, or it may even resemble a Z on some occasions however, there is a definite curl pattern in place. With our without products.
Lack of proper care can render dull curls. This type of curl lends itself to be full bodied, depending on the climate (humidity) it can frizz up, it’s damage prone and grows at the same rate as any other texture. However, if not treated properly it breaks more than other textures
Type 2 hair is often referred to as wavy. It lies somewhere between straight and curly hair. It also imparts sheen, more than curly hair, but less than straight hair. The further down the wavy spectrum you go the less sheen the hair will impart.
Type 1 is considered straight and reflects the most sheen. Because the sebum (natural oil produced in the sebaceous glands of the scalp) gently works its way from the scalp to the ends without the interference of curls or kinks, it is the most oily hair texture of all.
This hair type is the most resilient hair of all of the hair types and hard to damage and next to impossible to curl this hair texture.
