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 — 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 It’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 “S” 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 It’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.
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.
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.
