Expert Product Picks for 3C: Curly Coily Hair

Type 3c hair has voluminous, tight curls in corkscrews, approximately the circumference of a pencil or straw. The curls can be either kinky, or very tightly curled, with lots and lots of strands densely packed together. Getting this type of hair to blow dry straight is more challenging than for 3a or 3b, but it usually can be done. The very tight curls are usually fine in texture.

Quick tip: Use stylings creams, butters and oils for type 3c hair. This hair type needs extra moisture and tender-loving care since it's so fragile.
