If you’re unsure of the issues concerning your hair type (3b, 4c, ect.), take a look at this super easy guide to managing your unique styling needs.

HAIR TYPE #1: This hair is typically straight and benefits from volumizing shampoos and conditioners. Heavier creams and oil weigh down the hair shaft.

HAIR TYPE #2: This hair type can often be prone to immediate frizz and tangling, though usually a little finer than types 3 and 4.

The softness of this hair types requires the use of serums, leave-ins and detangling sprays that keep it slick while detangling.

HAIR TYPE #3: Gels, as well as creams, work wonders with this hair type. These curls can often exhibit a wavier pattern after heat-styling reversion.

It prefers creamy, thick conditioners to detangle, along with heavier twisting creams that contain aloe. Two-strand twists, braid-outs and coils are great styles to try.

HAIR TYPE #4: This hair type is the kinkiest of the bunch and is prone to dryness and brittleness when not conditioned well.

Use deep treatment masks and employ the use of a steamer to help with hydration. This hair type tends to hold twists, braids and coils better than any other type. Dry-twisting type #4 hair delivers amazing texture and patterns due to its ability to hold a mold.
