Expert Product Picks for 3B: Curly Spirally Hair

People with type 3b hair have well-defined, springy, copious curls that range from bouncy ringlets to tight corkscrews. 3b curls are Sharpie size in circumference. Type 3b hair can be straightened, but it definitely takes some work. Type 3b hair generally isn’t particularly shiny, and its texture can be quite coarse. Gels and creams work best to reduce frizz and add definition.

Quick tip: Because this hair type tends to frizz easily, use gels and styling creams with extra moisture and serious frizz control. 

3B celebrities: Julianna Margulies, Keri Russell and Bernadette Peters
