Type 1 , Straight hair 

This type of hair cuticle tend to be thick and solid , find mostly in Blond type 1 and Asian hair . Though some times this type hair can be thin it all depends on genetics and hormone its that simple . If this hair is healthy it will have natural shine .

Type 2 hair , Wavy 

Wavy hair is the mix between straight and curly , have a lose pattern and can be frizzy at times more frequently  for 2b and 2c type. It doesnt bounce up even if layered .  Some type 2 hair can also form a sort S shape , not just one direction wave .

Curly hair is prone to a lot of frizz and dryness if not care for the curls can appear dull instead of having a healthy shine, but can be bouncy and when wet wavy are almost straight .

Type 4 hair

This type hair is the more fragile of all hair type . This type include pen-sping level  hair that actually coils into a spiral like those small springs, and tight zig-zag and S-curled hair. Not only is African hair wiry, it is also frequently coarse. according to Anne Tecklenburg Strehlow, "African hair actually produces more oils than Caucasian and Asian hair. However, due to the tight curls, the oil fails to spread evenly along the hair fiber." This result in brittleness of African hair, then  adds to the illusion that it cannot be grown long. This type hair need to be moisture more frequently to grow long unlike straight hair which is low maintenance .
