THE TIGHT COIL 

A head full of rambunctious z-shaped strands and super sized volume characterises this hair type. The structure of your hair can sometimes feel stiff and dense - especially if not properly hydrated. And if you pull out a strand, you’ll see that it is much longer than it looks. That’s because the densely packed Z shape causes the hair to shrink, making your hair appear much shorter than it really is. We recommend stretching your hair into twists, braids or knots while they’re drying to retain length as well as moisture. With tight coils it’s never just on the surface - they need deep hydration to soak into each strand.

LOW POROSITY

Your hair cuticles are tightly packed together, so they struggle to absorb water and your hair takes a long time to dry. Products tend to sit on top of your hair, causing buildup. Use heat when applying your deep conditioner to open up your cuticles for better absorption. You should prioritise emollients over proteins and stick to lightweight, liquid-based products.

MEDIUM DENSITY

Your hair is somewhere between thick and thin and some of your scalp is visible. You can use a variety of products depending on how much volume you want, making sure each section of your hair is evenly coated with the product.

COURSE

These strands are the strongest hair texture, making them more resistant to damage and easier to maintain length. But coarse hair tends to be more prone to dryness, tangles and frizz. Make sure you’re using nourishing and moisture-boosting products with rich and creamy textures.
