Wavy, curly, coily or textured:read our guide to discover all about your curl type
We are used to distinguishing straight or curly hair, but did you know that there are many more types? There are three types of straight hair, wavy hair, curly hair and three of coily or textured hair. If we go beyond the simple distinction between straight and curly hair and go for a more detailed classification, you too may find out that your hair is different from what you think.
As mentioned above, there are twelve types of hair. Each type is identified by a number – from 1 to 4– that grows progressively as the hair movement increases. Type 1 refers to straight hair, type 2 to wavyhair, type 3 to curly hair, type 4 is for coily and textured hair. Within each category, there is an additional subdivisioninto A, B, C that describes how the curl winds.

Caring for curly hair starts with shampoo. Curly and wavy hair tends to get frizzy by nature, but if you use products that are too heavy, it can lose vitality and volume. In your curl care routine, you first need a moisturizing shampoo that gives elasticity and softness. Then follow up with conditioner every time you shampoo your hair, and swap in a nourishing hair mask once a month. To learn more, read our complete guide to the best products for curly hair.

The person pictured representing type 4 hair, does NOT have type 4 hair. The person pictured for this curl type has a 3c curl pattern. The 4 curl pattern is much tighter than that in the picture. As the child of a beautician who specialized in type 4 hair for over 50 years, and as a woman who has type 4a hair, I am certain that the woman pictured DOES NOT have type for hair. I absolutely love your products! My hair is healthy, well moisturized, and your products keep my curls well defined. I simply ask that you picture someone who truly fits the type 4 curl pattern. Authentic representation matters!!!

These products are the best that I have used especially for curley hair. I found the products searching for cruelty free products
