Find Out Your Hair Type & The Shampoo You Need

All our hair needs are different, that’s why we’re here to help you understand your hair and the best products for it. 

Hair types

It’s important to know your hair type so that you can determine what your hair needs. Although hair might appear similar, it's not all the same. 

There are 4 categories for hair, which are further broken down into type and texture.


Type 1: Straight hair

Does your hair have a hard time holding curls and it's mostly quite shiny? Then you will probably fall into the straight hair category.

1a - Straight hair that is normally on the finer side and doesn’t have much volume.

1b - Straight hair that has a bit more volume. This type will hold curls a little longer than 1a but still struggles with them lasting.

1c - Straight hair that has body waves, which are usually seen more toward the neck or temples. Again this hair has more hold on curly hairstyles, but it may not last all night long. 

Look for shampoos that provide shine and lightweight moisture.

Type 2: Wavy Hair

After the shower, does your hair tend to have a slight wave to it? Then your hair could fall into this type.

2a- Most 2a’s will have waves in the lower section of their hair, while the rest of it will be mostly straight 

2b - The waves in 2b will be higher starting from the middle of the hair and ends, yet the root will still have straightness to it.

2c - This hair type has a stronger and more defined wave pattern throughout, starting closer to the root. It's the waviest of the three in the Type 2 category.

Hydrating and frizz-control shampoos can help manage any frizz or flyaways.

Choose products that won't weigh down your waves but provide enough moisture.

Type 3: Curly Hair

If your hair forms tight spirals or loose curls, you likely have curly hair. 

3a - Loose, big, and well-defined curls that often resemble an 'S' shape.

3b - Curls are tighter and springier, forming more like ringlets.

3c - This type includes tightly coiled curls, almost like corkscrews, with the most defined and distinct shape.

Seek shampoos that offer deep hydration and define your curls. Look for sulfate-free options to prevent excessive dryness and frizz.

Type 4: Coiled Hair

Coiled hair, often referred to as kinky or afro-textured.

4a - The coils are small, tightly wound, and have a defined curl pattern.

4b - These coils are densely packed and form more of a zig-zag pattern.

4c - Coils in this category are incredibly tight, with a distinctive 'Z' or 'O' pattern.

Go for shampoos that provide intense moisture and detangling properties. Avoid products with harsh sulfates, which can strip your hair of its natural oils. You can keep our get glossy and tangle free conditioner on for 5 minutes in the shower for smooth nourished hair.
