Curls Course

So, today while browsing the web I found the best hair chart out there. In my little ole opinion anyhow.LOL. It was so refreshing to find this info, so I had to share and discuss the images on the chart. Thus, giving the reader enlightenment on natural hair and a curls classification system.This classification system named in this chart were established by Oprah Winfrey's own hairstylist, Mr. Andre Walker.This will help those newly natural, in transition and even those who have been natural for a minute, but never really learned what hair type they have. So here goes: Type 1
This hair type obviously, is for women who have sleek, straight hair. Mainly, women of Caucasian descent. Most um, black weaves fall into this category from what I have noticed.LOL One Celebrity that falls under this category: Actress, Jennifer Aniston Type 2
This hair type appears to have a wavy texture. They look really soft, and loose but waves or curls none the less. One Celebrity that falls under this category: Type3
For type 3 hair, These curly girls appear to have the same waves as the type 2 girls but the curls and or wave pattern is way more taught and defined.Making for tighter curls! One Celebrity that falls under this category: Singer, Mya Type4
The women who have this hair type appear have VERY kinky or course hair, and look like me. LOL. I have type 4 hair. I believe I have type 4b or 4c hair The hair is getting fuzzier and fuzzier. This hair type means that the strands of hair and or curl or wave pattern are VERY tightly wound.One Celebrity that falls under this Category:Singer, Jill Scott
