Let's explore the different types of hair and the struggles that come with it and how to overcome "hair type" obstacles.
There are 4 categories in the hair typing system...
Straight is Type 1
- There's absolutely no bend or wave pattern.
Wavy is Type 2
- There's a slight bend in the hair, creating ever so soft wavy locks
Curly is Type 3
- There's a pronounced bending of the hair making circular coils along the hair shaft
Kinky is Type 4
- Its tighter than a curl and hair textures more coarse.
