What You Need to Know About Hair Curls

Following the latest fashion and beauty trends almost always means that you need to change your overall look every six months, or even less. With fashion’s forever-changing nature, it is nearly impossible to stick with one fashion style or a hairstyle for the whole year, especially if you are the kind of person who gets itches in the eyes whenever you notice that something new and fresh is being highlighted. The hairstyle is among those continuously changing trends. It can be a straight bang trend this month, but it can also quickly transform into another style next month.

However, it is impressive that curls have been winning many women’s hearts for ages. From the 1950s’ Marilyn Monroe’s trendy curls to the most recent Taylor Swift’s curly long blonde, it is indeed one style that everyone cannot seem to have enough of. Of course, those with naturally straight hair will have to work on those curls a little bit more than those with naturally wavy hair. For that reason, there are several things you must know about the subject.

The Types of Curls

However, those beauticians have another more effective way to refer to them by classifying the styles based on the look and the shape. There are at least three types of the style, and they are 4a, 4b, and 4c. Indeed, they are different in certain ways.

The 4a type looks extraordinarily curly and coily, and hairbrush is often defined as the biggest enemy for the people with this hair type. The reason is that brushing one’s 4a hair will only break down the natural braid and make it look three times bigger than the original size. While the 4b is almost similar to the first type, the 4C hair type is the one with the most distinguished shrinking look.

The Treatments

No matter which type of curls you have, moisturizers are what your hair needs. Different from naturally straight hair which needs less care, curly hair requires special attention, especially when one wants to preserve one’s natural hairstyle. It is vital to keep your hair moisturized all the time, even when you sleep. When it comes to the best products for home treatments, the ones with water-based materials will make the best choice for your dry hair.
