Understanding Hair Textures and Types

Textured hair encompasses a wide range of curl patterns, from loose waves to tight coils. Here's a breakdown of the main hair textures and types:

  • 1. Type 1: Straight hair - This hair type is very rare among individuals of African descent, and is characterized by hair that is straight and lacks any natural curl or wave pattern.
  • 1. Type 2 (Wavy): This hair type has a defined S-shaped pattern and tends to be prone to frizz. It ranges from fine to coarse.
  • 2. Type 3 (Curly): Curly hair forms ringlets or corkscrew shapes and has more volume than wavy hair. It can range from loose curls to tight coils.
  • 3. Type 4 (Coily): Coily hair has a tight, spiral or zigzag pattern and is the most delicate of all hair types. It ranges from fine to coarse.

It's important to note that many individuals with black hair may have a combination of these hair types on different areas of their head, and that proper hair care and maintenance can help to enhance and define their natural curl pattern.Within each hair type, there are subcategories that further define the curl pattern and texture.
