IF YOU’RE A 3A…
You have big, loose “S”-shaped curls. Your hair tends to be bushy and frizzy and flyaway and although it tangles, you can usually detangle without too much trouble. Of the Type 3 textures yours is generally the finest or thinnest and feels weighed down when too much product is applied.Light-weight water or oil-based products will help you retain volume and smoothness without feeling heavy.
IF YOU’RE A 3B…
Your springy curls can vary from ringlets to corkscrews and can range from fine and thin to voluminous and dense. Tangling and knotting can be problematic on thicker textures, but generally detangle more easily when using products with the right about of slip. When the wrong products are used or the climate humid, 3B hair swells and turns bushy. However, the right moisture-rich products can transform out of control, flyaway, bushy hair into well-defined, springy curls.
IF YOU’RE A 3C…
Bounce and versatility are on your side! Your deep waves with a light curl are a full S shape andtangling and a heaviness can be a bit of a problem if your hair is fuller and thicker. Of the Type 2 patterns, this one is most prone to frizz. Anti-frizz smoothing treatments and just a bit of a light-weight oil will keep frizz away and give your waves impeccable shine. Keep It Curly Stretch & Set is a great styling foam for curly hair.

Type 3a’s loose and big “C” or “S”-shaped curls look longer because it doesn’t experience shrinkage. To prevent flyaways and bushiness and achieve smooth, curly definition, use Texture My Way Easy Comb Detangler or Keep It Curly Stretch & Set Styling Foam as a hydrating, defining leave-in conditioner.
Because Type 3b texture ranges from thin to dense, detangling may or may not be an issue. For thinner Type 3 texture, shampoo often and use our Keep It Curly Stretch & Set Styling Foam and just a little Keep It Curly Curl Pudding for great hydration and smooth definition.
Type 3c hair products must have intensive moisture retentive ingredients like olive oil and shea butter in order to keep these tight, corkscrew curls hydrated, soft and easier to manage. Intensive moisturizing products like each of the Texture My Way maintenance and styling products will allow Type 3’s to keep curls looking distinctive and gives them the ability to explore a variety of hairstyles.
Because type 3C is more prone to shrinkage than the two hair types, a good softening shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner are best. Make it a habit to use Type 3 hair products to deep condition your hair either once a week or bi-weekly. Deep conditioning will help alleviate chronic dryness.
