Curl Patterns

All hair textures can be categorized under one of four types: Type 1 (straight), Type 2 (wavy), Type 3 (curly), or Type 4 (extremely curly, or kinky). From there, these groups split into subgroups: A, B, and C. Each group shares common characteristics. Knowing which one you fall under makes it much easier to find the right hair products and routines for you.

Here's a fact: the most common hair types in the Black/African-American community range from 3A to 4C. These hair types receive the least amount of love and representation in movies, TV shows, ads, and more. This is why they receive top priority here on Naturalista. In the future, we hope to add Types 1 and 2 here to make our website fully inclusive.
