Curly Q&A

What is my hair type?

by monibean3 (?)   category Hair Types

I have no idea what it is. It could be a mixture of a few types. It has some wavy parts and some super duper curly parts. I want it to be curly throughout, and I have tried different methods. I tried the CG method, but that has left my hair greasy. And when I use shampoo, my hair is frizzy. Have a halo of frizz no matter what I do. I have really thick hair, but it is made up of  lots of thinner strands leaving my hair poofy. I really just don't know what to do to it anymore. By the way, I live in Brazil, so I'm not sure which products work for me here, and it is super humid everyday. So if you have tips for frizz, and how to make it curlier, do tell!!! Sorry, about the photo, not the best quality.

Thanks for the tips! I had a diffuser that I bought here that left my hair amazing, but it nearly caught my hair on fire on the second use....so I had to return it. I was too afraid to get another one. I think my hair is curlier that 2a or 2b, maybe 2b or 3a. But the curliness of my hair varies, depending on the day. I will try some gels and mousses. Thanks again!

Givin the quality of the picture I'd say your hair is more wavy than curly, 2a and 2b which could work for you since you wouldn't need that much product as others. I'm not sure what kind of products they have in Brazil but You could look for a gentle cleaser to wash your hair, a light weight yet moisturizing condioner, a volumizer to help with the frizz and gels or mousses which ever you prefer. I find I like mousses because they don't leave my hair as hard and they give it hold. It helps to diffuse after putting in mouse because it gives it a glossy look and makes your hair soft. Hope I helped ! :)

It looks like it's 3a, but you might want to take our hair quiz to be sure: http://hairtype.naturallycurly.com/?mid=89#quiz

You have gorgeous curls! You might want to play around with cocktailing a leave-in conditioner with a styling product. That can really help eliminate frizz.

It looks like you have wavy hair. Wavy hair doesn't require as strict of a regimen as the curly girl method, so you can play around with different products to see what works for you. I have wavy hair, I recommend using a sulfate free shampoo, any conditioner, and a cream gel for styling. If it's really humid there in Brazil, try applying a leave in conditioner before you style your hair. Don't wash your hair every day, that definitely leads to frizz, and don't brush it! Brush in the shower. You should take the hair type quiz to see exactly what your pattern is. 

I know frizz can be frustrating and there's so much information around it that I can't sum it all up right here! But start with this article...it's loaded with tips.
