The Types Of Natural Hair

  • Straight
  • Wavy
  • Wavy-Curly
  • Kinky-Curly

Straight Hair

1A (Fine): Hair Is Absolutely Straight From The Root To The Ends. This Hair Type Is Very Rare And Will Not Hold A Curl. THIS Type Of Straight Hair Is Soft And Shiny, But Thin And Wispy. It Is Very Easy To Manage And Style, But It Often Needs A Little Bit Of Lift At The Roots. A Hairstyle We Recommend For Fine Hair Is Swept To The Side โ€” For An INSTANTLY Sexy Look That You Can Blow Dry. Make Sure To Get A Hairstyle With Layers, For An Appearance Of More Depth.

1B (Medium): Since it has a bit more volume and body, medium hair can be very easy to manage. A Sleek Ponytail Is The Perfect Candidate For This Look, As Itโ€™s Thick Enough To Give The Hair Some Style, But Not So Thick That It Breaks Rubber Bands In The Process. This Sophisticated Look Can Be Worn ANYTIME.

1C (Course): This Type Of Hair Is Usually Stick-straight And Difficult To Make In Waves or Curls, Instead Coming In With One Or Two visible โ€œSโ€ Waves. Long And Layered Is The Way To Go Here, Otherwise It Might Be A Little Too Hard To Handle. This Is The Most Resilient Of All Straight Hair Types, But Itโ€™s A Bit More Difficult To Manage, Because Of It’s Thickness. Take Advantage Of It’s Resilience And Wear It Long And Parted In The Middle.

Wavy Hair

2A: Your Waves Are Fine And Thin With A Loose, Tousled Texture.

  • Your Lack Of Volume And Definition Means That Products Can Easily Weigh Them Down And Strands Can Become Straight So Use Lighter Styling Products Like Mousses And Gels.

2B: Your Hair Is Mostly Straight At The Roots And Falls Into More Defined S-shaped Waves From The Mid-lengths To The Ends. It Is A Medium Texture With Some Frizz At The Crown.

  • Plop Your Freshly Washed Hair For More Definition.

2C: Your Waves Are More Defined And Start At The Roots, Than With Curls And Ringlets. This Texture Is Typically Thick Or Coarse, And Is Prone To Frizzing

  • Diffuse Wet, But Not Soaking Hair Upside down After Washing For More Volume.

Wavy-Curly Hair

3A: You have big, loose curls and spirals similar in circumference to a piece of thick, sidewalk chalk. Your curls tend to be shiny, with a well-defined S-shape.

  • Twirl small sections of curls around your finger while hair is still damp to encourage definition.

3B: Your springy curls can vary from ringlets to corkscrews. They are voluminous and have a circumference similar to a Sharpie marker. Type 3b hair tends to be coarse and dense.

  • Use an anti-humectant (humidity blocking) styling cream or styling milk for less frizz but more definition.

3C: This type often is referred to as curly-coily and tends to be very dense, tightly packed corkscrews that are the circumference of a pencil or a straw. Type 3c hair tends to experience the most volume, but also the most shrinkage of curls.

  • Gently enhance and safely stretch without heat using a twist-out, bantu-knot out, flexi rod set, or perm rod set.

Kinky Curly Hair

4A: Your dense springy coils are either wiry or fine, and have the circumference of a crochet needle. They are tightly coiled, with a visible S pattern.

  • Use thicker natural emollients like mango and Shea butters to maximize your wash-and-go, twist-out, or bantu knot-out style after washing.

4B: Instead of curling or coiling, your hair bends in sharp angles like the letter Z. The curl is tighter and less defined – about the circumference of a pen – with strands that range from fine and thin to wiry and coarse.

  • Pre-poo with coconut oil or castor oil to help retain natural oils in your scalp.

4C: Your densely packed hair is similar to a 4b, but experiences less definition and more shrinkage. The tightly coiled strand texture ranges from super fine, thin and soft to wiry and coarse. It is very delicate.

  • Use a creamy humectant as a leave-in to maximize protection from the elements.
