How To Figure Out Your Hair Type

#W2Naturals will help you discover your hair type and how to nurture your hair accordingly. What we need to know before our hair type is that hair regardless of color and structure is something that must always be adequately cared for and to which enough attention must be paid, because not only hair needs to be healthy and clean but hair is also part of our image. 

So follow us and discover your hair type and how to care for it properly.

Discovering your curl type will save you time looking for the right hair products - you will know exactly what you are looking for and what helps you.

1A TYPE

If you have 1A type, you don't need care at all! Just kidding, but girl we're talking about curls here! But yes, you'll probably need some basic shampoo and good conditioner such as Gorgeous Collection Leave In Conditioner or Queen Collection Leave In Conditioner.

2A TYPE

If you have hair that is straight from the roots to near the eyes and then falls into gently tousled waves, you have 2A type hair. It is best described as not quite straight and slightly curly hair. The slight S-shaped bends in the hair provide a natural bounce and body.

It is best described as not quite straight and slightly curly hair. 

Although this type of hair is not completely curly it requires care similar to curly hair care. It is important to provide the 'leave in' products. Of course, wavy hair needs more hydration than straight hair. It is important to find products that are designed exclusively for wavy hair so that you do not use products that will completely numb your curls or that will dry out your hair too much.

You can also nourish your hair with some natural oils, and try to avoid heat styling tools.

2B TYPE

It's like the 2a upgraded version. The care is almost the same as for 2a hair type only you should pay attention to the tangling of the hair. Intensified care of the ends of the hair and the use of an appropriate conditioner are advised.

2C TYPE

It's like a Beyoncé in Destiny's Child. It's the queen of wavy types. Most wavy of all those 3 wavy types (2A, 2B, 2C). However, the waves of 2C hair are not gentle. Women who have 2C hair have similar hair problems to those with curly hair such as tangles and difficulty in maintaining definition.

You should definitely use hair products that help with controlling frizz. Also you should use natural oils to nourish your hair, or shampoos and conditioners that contains natural oils instead.

Get a haircut regularly. Avoid using heat styling tools or while you use it protect your hair with heat protectant.

3A TYPE

3A hair is made up of well-defined and springy curls that have a loopy, “S” shaped pattern. 3A ringlets have a fine to medium texture. This curl type benefits from lots of body and movement but is prone to frizzing and dryness.

So, if this is your hair type al your hair need is- HYDRATION, HYDRATION and HYDRATION!

Use shampoos without sulfates, silicones and paraben because they make your hair dry. For example, you can use our KISS: Kind&Simple Shampoo and Queen Collection Leave In Conditioner to make your hair smooth and gentle and ready for combing.

3B TYPE

Hair type 3Bs have springy ringlets with a circumference similar to a Sharpie marker. This hair texture can get dry, so look for styling gels that have humectants in them to attract moisture to strands. It looks amazing, you can wear whatever you want but all eyes will be on your hair because it’s simply and naturally amazing! But don’t forget to drink a lot of water and to use no sulfate shampoos and rich conditioners and natural oils.

3C TYPE

Curls oh curls .. guess you'll need Curls Oh Curls Defining Creme to tame that fluttery and lush hair. You'll also need some moisturizing shampoo, good conditioner and a lot of natural oils.

4A TYPE

You'll need deep conditioning weekly. You have to use every opportunity to give your hair enough moisture and hydration. We recommend our W2Naturals Hair Bonnet which you can use while you're sleeping and she'll work for you! Promise!

4B TYPE

In general, your 4b day routine should  look something like this:

A pre-poo,

  1. Shampoo (cleansing conditioner one week, shampoo the next week)
  2. Conditioner (and use this time to detangle), rinse out with cold water.
  3. Deep condition/protein treatment.
  4. Style using a hydrating leave-in conditioner, a cream and an oil/gel

 4C TYPE

Oh girl you’ll need all of the above! Use a pre-poo. It takes a lot to detangle tightly textured hair.

Use a sulfate-free shampoo. You want to avoid harsh shampoos that contain sulfates when it comes to this hair type and moisturize often.
