Every type is different!
Because there are so many different types of curls, curly hair is broken down into different curly hair types. Within the Curly Girl Method, they are classified into numbers from 1 to 4. Number 1 is straight hair, so we’ll leave that out of this article. The numbers 2, 3 and 4 indicate your curl type: 2 stands for wavy, 3 for curly and 4 for coily. You can also have a combination of two curl types that are close together. The letters A, B and C indicate how tight your curls are coiled. Below we give tips for each hair type for products that best suit it.

Hair type 2
Hair type 2 is wavy or wavy hair. Think of bendable and flexible hair, the texture can vary from fine to thick, and has a distinct S-pattern. With hair type 2, you prefer to use airy products with a light hold, such as a mousse. Light products that do not make your hair heavy work best for your hair. Therefore, do not use a gel, as it is too heavy for fine hair.

Hair type 3
Hair type 3 is called curly or curly hair, and is spiral shaped. The curls range from loose, bouncy loops to tight, springy corkscrews that shine but can also frizz quickly. So use products that moisturize your hair, define curls and reduce frizz, such as a gel.
Hair Type 4
Hair type 4 is usually called coily, afro hair or frizzy hair. It is naturally very dry and spongy in texture. Afro hair can be soft and fine, but also thick and rough. Use products that intensely moisturize your hair, such as conditioners that give your hair a slip, a butter, cream or gel.
