"Your curl type is determined by the shape of the follicle that your hair grows out of or from your scalp. The flatter or more oval-shaped the follicle, the curlier your hair; the more circular the cross-section, the straighter your hair. Your curl pattern is also identified by the shape that the strands of hair make, whether they kink, curve, or wind around themselves into spirals.
Most people with textured hair have more than one type of pattern on their head, "so you may have a combination of, say, kinky, coily, wavy, and curly
Identifying your curl shape and pattern (or patterns) is best determined while your hair is sopping wet.
A simple breakdown: Type 1s are straight, Type 2s are wavy, Type 3s are curly, and Type 4s are coily.
The sub-classifications of A to C are based on the width or diameter of your wave, curl, or coil pattern. Type As have a wider pattern size, Type Bs medium, and Type Cs the smallest of the three.

Hair porosity is a key player in effectively moisturizing our hair.

The way the cuticle of your hair lays and opens is the determining factor of your porosity.
HEALTH HAIR STARTS WITH YOU
MEDIUM POROSITY CHARACTERISTICS
If your hair has normal (medium) porosity strands, your cuticles “float” open and close easily – which means your strands easily accept and retain moisture. While your curls could be in the “just right” category, your hair needs can range – you might need more moisture, hold, or protein. Exactly what it needs can vary, especially with seasonal change. Balance your routine with a mixture of moisture and hold until you find what works for you!
HIGH POROSITY CHARACTERISTICS
LETS TEST YOUR HAIR PORISITY
As you moisturize your hair, don't let all that conditioning work go to waste by not holding that moisture in.
