Type 1A: Straight Hair
Is your hair naturally straight and lightweight? Then this is your group. This type of hair usually doesn’t hold curls well, unless you use a spray or misthold.
Type 1B Hair
Not all straight hair is the same… Take this type 1B. This type of straight hair is fuller, thicker-looking with heavier locks that kind of bend at the tips.
Type 1C Hair
This type of hair is mostly straight but also kind of wavy starting on the middle towards the tips.When you have this type of hair you are more prone to experience a little frizz.
Our Product Pick for Type 1 Hair:
A dry or clarifying shampoo! Using these products will make your straight strands look fresh and alive. Clarifying shampoos help you deep cleanse, while also extending the time between washes. Dry shampoos, as the name suggests, is what you can use between those washes to keep it clean and with body.
Type 2A: Wavy Hair
This type of hair has a very loose S-shape. While it’s not precisely curled, it insinuates it. The 2A hair is usually super baby-fine but very easy to manage.
Type 2B Hair
If you have 2B hair, you probably have much more defined waves that change noticeably with humidity. In more humid temperatures your hair may look beachy, but in drier climates it may seem more settled. So if this is your hair, be glad you are just born with beautiful beachy waves!
Type 2C Hair
Now, 2C peeps, you have the privilege of owning super tight and swirly waves. This is the type of hair we define as “borderline curly”.

If this is your category then you are very familiar with frizz—but there’s an instant fix to this! Try hair serum. Apply some after every wash for a very smooth finish that will have your waves under control, even during the windiest of days.
Type 3A: Curly Hair
Are your natural curls loose but with a clear S-shape pattern? Then hello type 3 hair! The #1 rule for this type of hair is: hydration! You can keep your locks hydrated with a leave-in conditioner.
Type 3B Hair
If your hair is curly with a little more volume than the previous type, you are a Type 3B. This hair usually looks as if the curls were stretched out, with a less clear pattern and a more wild design. Again, hydration is key to keep these locks looking their natural gorgeous!
