Straight hair lays close the scalp and is typically prone to oiliness and a limp appearance
There are different ways of understanding your hair type. We use the traditional Hair Chart method as this often makes it easier for most people who are new to hair typing to figure out the best place to start for their hair. The Hair Chart is based on a numbering and lettering sequence.
Straight Hair is Type 1
Wavy Hair is Type 2
Curly Hair is Type 3
Coily Hair is Type 4
Within each hair type you will will get variations in the degree of curl tightness. This is graded from A – C with “A” being the looser variant and “C” representing a tighter variant for a particular group. So a Type 3A pattern is looser than a Type 3C pattern but a type 3C pattern is looser than a 4A.
Straight hair has very little to virtually no waves at all. This hair texture can range from fine to coarse strands. Straight hair is prone to oiliness and does not hold curls well.
