The rule is very simple: your hair care routine should be according to the type of hair you have. However, although it seems very easy, if you are not sure about your hair type, this can be something much more complicated.
Hair types are classified as follows:
- Type 1 - Straight
- Type 2 - Wavy
- Type 3 - Curly
- Type 4 - Frizzy (Afro)
Likewise, there is a subclassification that goes from A to C, in such a way that the type of hair you have can be identified with greater precision. It should be clarified that it is most likely that you have more than one hair pattern, but this classification helps to better choose the care routine.
Type 1a, 1b, 1c
Care for straight hair is the simplest in this comparison, since it is a type of docile hair and, therefore, it is easy to manage. Either way, it is recommended to use shampoo and conditioner with organic ingredients to keep it in good condition.
Type 2a, 2b, 2c
This type of hair tends to be straighter closer to the root and wavier closer to the ends. For wavy hair, products that give more volume and are not very heavy are recommended.
Type 3a, 3b, 3c
This type of hair can have relatively open and very tight curls, as well as being very mixed (ie, you probably have 3a, 3b and 3c curls). This type of hair usually has a lot of volume, so stricter care is recommended to avoid damage and dehydration.
Very curly hair (Afro)
Type 4a, 4b, 4c
This type of hair is very delicate and must be treated very carefully; it is characterized by curls that follow a zig-zag pattern. Since this type of hair has fewer cuticle layers, it is very important to maintain a good moisturizing routine.
Now that you know better the types of hair that exist, you will be able to better choose your care routine to always look radiant.
