Identifying Your Hair Type, Part 6 - Curl Pattern
What is my curl pattern?
Begin by washing your hair as you normally do. Air dry, and hold off on the product for now.
Remove a strand of hair from the root. You want to have the whole strand of hair for observation.
Lay the strand of hair on a sheet of white paper, and simply look at how it falls. This will tell you your basic curl pattern
- No curve - straight hair
- Slight curves - wavy hair
- "S" shaped bends - curly hair
- Tightly coiled "z" shape - coily/kinky hair
Now that you know all of the important identifying properties of your hair, you can start washing, styling, and cutting in a manner best suited for your hair. Get ready to have amazing hair!!
