Hair Type 3
Posted by Lil Type 3 hair consists of curls that range from slight to very curly. They are defined and give the impression that if you were to sever a group of curls from their roots and attach them to a legless pogo stick– it would still work just fine (so basically this hair type is generally very bouncy). Before we get into the sub-categories, let’s look at some general facts and interesting points to note about curly hair:
- Elasticity is lower in black curly hair and higher in light coloured hair. The better the elasticity – the stronger the hair.
- Tends not to hold its natural oils so well leading to dry/frizzy hair
- Sealing in moisture and maintaining style can be hard to balance
- Locking in moisture should be on your priority list when it comes to taking care of your curls
