How do you take care of a 3b curly hair?
Shampoo once a week This is common for type 3 hair, and it’s why you’ll need a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. We’d recommend cutting back your routine and washing your hair only once a week if you’re doing it more often. Shampoo can really dry out your hair by stripping the natural oils from your scalp.
Can you go from 3a to 3b hair?
Unfortunately, there’s not much in terms of natural and healthy ways to make your hair 3b/3a. I mean keeping it 3b is a relatively easy task, but to get 3a hair, you’d have to try styling methods. You could try rollers, flexi rods, perm rods, etc. Chemical routes will also result in damage to your hair.
What is 3a and 3b hair?
If your curls easily wrap around the sidewalk chalk, then you have type 3A hair. If the permanent marker is the best fit, then your hair type is 3B. If your spiral curls are the size of a pencil, you have type 3C hair.
What can I put in my 3B hair?
3b hair has a tendency to frizz out and lose definition, which means you want to use products that moisturize and encourage clumping (i.e., curl definition). Gomes suggests styling your hair with a combination of creams, leave-in conditioners, gels, and lightweight oils.
How do you treat low porosity 3B hair?
How to moisturise low porosity hair
- Pre-poo. Make sure you pre-poo before washing your hair.
- Wash your hair regularly. Washing your hair weekly or every 2 weeks will keep it free of product build-up and give it another opportunity to absorb some moisture.
- Moisturise your hair mid-week.
- Seal in moisture.
- Cover your hair.
What is a 3B hair type?
Hair type 3Bs have springy ringlets with a circumference similar to that of a Sharpie marker. This hair texture can get dry, so look for styling gels that have humectants in them to attract moisture to strands. A word of advice: “Apply when [your hair is] wet, so you’ll get definition without frizz,” Dickey shares.
What is 3A 3B curly hair?
3B curls are coarser, springier, and tighter than 3A curls, and they usually have the circumference of a Sharpie marker or your index finger. Unlike 3A curls, which tend to lose their definition or get pulled out, 3B curls stay coiled no matter how much you play with them or what products you put on them (yay!).
What is a 3A hair type?
3A hair is made up of well-defined and springy curls that have a loopy, “S” shaped pattern. Their circumference is the size of a piece of sidewalk chalk. 3A ringlets have a fine to medium texture. This curl type benefits from lots of body and movement, but is prone to frizzing and dryness.
How do I moisturize my 3C hair?
A good moisturizing routine is a key to getting long luscious 3C curls, and protection against hair breakage and split ends. You can also deep condition your 3C hair by sitting with a mask or treatment on your hair for 30 minutes weekly under a hooded dryer for added moisture and hydration.
How do you moisturize 3a hair?
Moisturize: This is absolutely key to having great 3a curls. In addition to making sure your curls are well moisturized, you’re going to need to use protein treatments as well. Use a deep conditioning treatment 2-5 times a month to help re establish and maintain moisture in your locks.
