Hair Types / Textures

So remember when I once mentioned something about hair types? And maybe how your hair cannot look exactly like mine?

Well this post will explain what I meant by that.

God is a very creative person, so much that he created people whith different hair types. Yep! Up to that utmost detail. That man sure is dedicted,huh?

Let’s first agree that all hair types are beautiful just the way they are. We need to learn to appreciate what we have more, because I mean, if God gave us the hair we have on our head, I’m pretty sure it’s because he knew that it’s what would look best on us. So let’s embrace our straight, waves, curls and coils.

So we have four categories for our hair types:


  • Straight Hair – 1a, 1b, 1c
  • Wavy Hair – 2a, 2b, 2c
  • Curly Hair – 3a, 3b, 3c
  • Coily/Kinky hair – 4a, 4b, 4c



They are pretty awesome right? Best part, you can end up having a bit of everything on your head, but one texture is always the majority. That’s what happens on my head, I have such an interesting mix, I even have type 1a.


Do you know what your hair type is? Mine is 3c. Let me know on the comments what hair type is yours.
