Calling all the curly girls!
From loose waves to tight coils, there’s a spectrum of different curl types out there, and each curl type has its own charm and character. Before you can get into how to care for your curls, you need to know your curl type. Today we’re breaking them down for you!
Different curls fall under different types, from wavy to to curly and coily. Let’s break down the differences according to type:
Wavy hair type 2
Wavy hair falls between straight and curly, featuring gentle, S-shaped waves. Wavy hair can be further divided into three subcategories:
2A: Fine, loose waves.
2B: More defined waves that tend to form an ‘S’ shape.
2C: Waves that are closer to curls, often with more volume and texture.
Curly hair type 3
Curly hair is characterised by well-defined, spiral-shaped curls and can also be further divided into three categories:
3A: Large, loose curls.
3B: Springy ringlets with more volume.
3C: Tight corkscrew curls that can vary in size.
Coily hair type 4
Coily hair consists of tight, densely packed curls or coils, further dividing into three categories:
4A: Defined curls with an “S” pattern.
4B: Z-shaped coils that may not have a distinct curl pattern.
4C: Crimpy coils with minimal definition but stunning texture.
