TEXTURE GUIDE

TEXTURE GUIDE

When classifying your curl pattern, it's good to remember the basic hair type rules.

Numbers indicate the pattern. 

  • 1s are Straight
  • 2s are Wavy
  • 3s are Curly
  • 4s are Coily

Letters A to C indicate the diameter/ size of your wave, curl, or coil pattern. As the letters move up the chart, the diameter of each wave, cirl, or coil gets smaller. B and C patterns are the smallest of the three (A, B, and C).

Our product line consists of 3 and 4 curl patterns with an A, B, and C size range.

 

Below is our hair guide to help you choose the extensions that best match your own texture.

Texture Pattern Description Example
3A

    Type 3A curls show a loopy "S" pattern.
    Curls tend to be big and loose. 


    Straightening this hair texture is usually easy since the diameter of the curls are loose and less dense. 


    Maintaining curls with this pattern typically require holding spray.

      3B

      3B hair is known for the bouncy curls.


      This hair can be course but is loose enough to be straightened with reasonable heat application and effort.


      3B hair can also appear as loose curls and is extremely versatile with its ability to relax with low heat and return to a ringlet curl pattern with water or water-based products.

        3C hair has tight curls. 


        Curls can be kinky, tightly curled with voluminous density.


        This hair can be straightened with, but with a little more effort than the previous 3 textures.

        Holding spray products and creams work best for maintaining curls.

            3C/4A Texture

            4B

            4B has a "Z" pattern.


            This hair has a cotton-like feel and often responds to external climates by taking on an afro-curly texture.


            This hair although very densely packed is fragile and requires responsible heat application.


            4B hair proudly claims the "shrinkage is real" phrase with up to 3/4 shrinkage of length when wet or exposed to external climates.


            4B hair can range from fine (when straightened) to coarse

              4C

              4C hair is considered one of the densest curl patterns. 


              It mimics the "Natural Afro" in texture.


              This pattern does not have as much curl definition as previous textures, however, it curls can be defined through twist outs and custard cream products that assist in defining the curls.


              Shrinkage is definitely real with this texture and is often mistaken to be shorter when wet or exposed to external climates.
