AURA Specialists’ Curl-enhancing Tips
1. Know your curl type.
Understanding your curl type is essential to giving your hair type the attention it deserves.
Curl experts typically use the following four simple categories to describe different hair types. Each type is defined by the density, hair texture, and look of the hair:
Type 1 – Straight Hair
– May be unable to hold a curl
Type 2 – Wavy Hair | Loose Curls
– Fine to thick blendable curls
Type 3 – Defined Curls
– Loose lightweight loops to tight corkscrews
Type 4 – Coily | Tight Curls
– Soft and fine to coarse and wiry strands; naturally dry and cloud-like texture
Distinguishing your curl pattern helps you learn the best practices for keeping your natural hair nourished, managed, and defined. Having this information helps determine what ingredients are most beneficial for your curl type in your hair care
