My Curl Pattern
What are Curl Patterns?
As you know by now, hair varies from individual to individual. Curl pattern is simply the manner in which your hair is curled. Curl pattern is divided into four groups. The straight, the wavy, the curly and the kinky. It is important to know the group you fall into just as it is important to know your blood group.
The straight hair is hard to damage and difficult to curl because the sebum easily spreads from the scalp to the ends without curls or kinks to interrupt its path. It is the most oily hair texture of all.

The Curly Pattern
The curly pattern hair texture has more defined springy curls that form spirals or ringlets. It comprises of the 3a, 3b, and 3c hair types.
Type 3A, 3B, 3C
3a curls are similar in size to a large loosely S shape. 3b curls have the circumference of a Sharpie,3c curls have the circumference of a pencil or a straw.
Kinky Curl Pattern
The kinky curl pattern can appear much shorter than it is, It gets dried quickly and It is prone to brekage so, it requires a gentle touch. It does not have a define curl or wave pattern. It comprise of the 4a, 4b, and 4c hair types
4A, 4B, and 4C
4a's strands look like a small, tight corkscrews the size of a crochet needle and shrinks to half its length when dry. 4b curls are tighter than 4a and more closely resemble the spring of a pen. 4c curls are similar to the 4b curl pattern but but more denser with coarser strands, 4c hair is just a huge fro that is difficult to get any kind of definition, because there is no kind of curl pattern.
