Type 3c - Curly Kinky Hair
Subtype 3c is really more than a subtype. It's a type NaturallyCurly members developed because the original system left out this hair type, which falls between 3b and 4a, having its own special characteristics.
- Type 3c hair has tight curls in corkscrews
- 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
Circumference: Pencil or straw
3c celebrities: Heather Headley, Alicia Keyes, Jada Pinkett-Smith
The best Jessicurl products for type 3c hair are:
- Hair Cleansing Cream for cleansing
- Too Shea! Extra Moisturizing Conditioner for daily and leave-in conditioning
- Spiralicious Styling Gel for all types of styles.
- Deep Conditioning Treatment for deep conditioning.
