It can be difficult to figure out how to take care of your beautiful curls, we understand and want to help you!  Many different kinds of curls and textures can exist on one single head of hair, which has to appear all the same when styled. Many people have found out that even though the typing system for curls may be too diverse or too narrow, it may be quite beneficial when identifying your curl pattern so you know where to start when looking for the right hair-care products for your hair type!

The curl type of your hair is found out by the shape of your hair follicle. The flatter the follicle, the curlier the hair and the more circular the follicle, the straighter the hair. So what are the different types? Type 1s are straight, Type 2s are wavy, Type 3s are curly, and Type 4s are coily. Along with these different types there are sub classifications from A to C that are based on the width and diameter of the coil, curl, or wave. Type As have a wider pattern size, Type Bs have a medium size, and Type Cs have the smallest pattern size.
