extra curly/ wavy
Despite many misconceptions, extra curly/ wavy hair is quite fine and fragile. It is wiry and delicate by nature. Each strand usually has a zig zag pattern. This is the driest hair type, thus it is more prone to breakage and requires a gentle touch.
Extra curly/ wavy hair grows at the same rate as other textures, however, if not treated properly it breaks easily, not retaining length. Treat this hair type like a fine silk blouse – cleanse gently, detangle softly, and avoid harsh chemicals. This hair needs added moisture, daily. The key to keeping these natural locks healthy, shiny, and beautiful is to moisturize every step of the way.
Wavy hair lies somewhere between straight and curly hair. It also imparts sheen, more than curly hair, but less than straight hair. The further down the wavy spectrum you go, the less sheen the hair will impart. Wavy hair is typically more prone to frizz. Because wavy hair is more prone to frizz, anti frizz/humidity protective stylers are key for creating and keeping gorgeous waves.
Paul Mitchell's Sculpting Foam is an ideal styler for this hair type, as it provides good hair movement, hold and frizz protection. Keep your fingers out of wavy hair, the more you tousle the more frizzes you experience.
Straight hair reflects the most sheen. It is also the most resilient hair of all of the hair types. It is hard to damage and next to impossible to curl this hair texture. Because the sebum (natural oil produced in the sebaceous glands of the scalp) gently works its way from the scalp to the ends without the interference of curls or kinks, it is the most oily hair texture of all.
Fine Straight Hair tends to be limp and fragile, usually with a shiny appearance but not able to be styled easily. Color will add body and control. Medium Straight Hair is easily styled, can hold curls, and is best suited for straighter styles. Course Straight Hair is usually porous, despite its shiny appearance.
