There are a variety of curly hairs out there, from natural curls to weaves. But did you know that these curls have been differentiated into a variety of shapes and patterns? According to hairstylist, Vernon François, “curl patterns are also identified by the shape that the strands of hair make, whether they kink, curve, or wind around themselves into spirals.”
For ladies with natural hair, it is easier to identify the kind of curls you have when your hair is wet. Oprah Winfrey’s hairstylist, Andre Walker, was the first person to classify the different hair textures into four different types:
- Type 1 – Straight Hair
- Type 2 – Wavy Hair
- Type 3 – Curly Hair a
- Type 4 – Coily Hair.
However, NaturallyCurly further divided the hair types into 3 more subcategories each – A, B, and C – according to the diameter of the curl.
