HAIR TYPE 101
GET TO KNOW YOUR LOCKS
Textured hair is one of the most diverse hair types, which means there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ rule of thumb when it comes to routines. Identifying your hair type can help you discover products and techniques that will work magic for your unique hair.
TYPE 2 – WAVY
Wavy hair is typically shaped like an S and shares similar characteristics to both straight and curly hair.
Type 2 waves can be prone to frizz and dryness so will need a hair regime that focuses on keeping the hair smooth and hydrated.
TYPE 3 – CURLY
Curly hair ranges from loose curls to corkscrews and can be fine in texture but look quite voluminous in appearance.
This hair type will require frequent moisturisation as it can be prone to dryness, so the best products are those which both moisturise and define curls.
TYPE 4 – COILY
Type 4 hair has tight coils that are very springy and tightly formed. It often looks quite thick in appearance, but due to its proneness to dryness, it is quite fragile and needs to be handled delicately.
Tightly coiled hair benefits greatly from moisturisers and oils that prevent breakage and add shine.
