Type 1: Straight

Is the poker straight hair type, this type of hair is difficult to curl due to its smooth texture. Type one hair is very resilient which makes it more resistant to damage and it has a tendency to get oily faster than the other hair types.

Type 1a

1A hair tends to have fine strands and thin volume (the density of hair). If you have type 1A hair, you may find that your hair gets oily fairly quickly and it does not hold curls for long. On the upside, type 1A hair is typically very soft, shiny and hard to damage. Thin water-soluble products are great for this type of hair and dry shampoo to eliminate extra oils and add texture.

Type 1b

1B hair tends to have medium strands (that are not fine or course) and a normal volume (density of hair). This type of hair is known for having more volume and body than type 1A. Texturizing sprays and products that add volume are great for 1b hair.

Type 1c

1C hair tends to have thick course strands (that are not fine or course) and a thick volume (density of hair). This type of hair is very straight and does not hold curls for long. Using texturizing sprays and products that add volume can help people with this hair type prolong the wear of curls.
