  • 11. Natural Hair Support Group
    Travelling on this journey together
  • 12. We believe women should not feel forced or pressured to conform to anyone else’s standard of beauty. We also believe a person should learn what it takes to care for their own personal beauty needs, by practicing a hands-on approach to grooming.
    What we believe
  • 13. Classify your hair to better determine your needs and expectations
    #1 Discover your hair type
  • 14. Type 3 (Curly)
    Type 4 (Kinky)
    “S” pattern
    Shiny with soft, smooth curls and strong elasticity
    Lot of body
    When wet usually straightens out
    Humidity makes it curlier or frizzier
    Can easily be straightened with a blow dryer into a smoother style
    Type 3A ~ Very loosely curled
    Type 3B ~ Medium amount of curl
    Very wiry, very tightly coiled
    Very, very fragile
    Quite fine with lots of thin strands
    Densely packed together
    Fewer cuticle layers
    Type 4A ~ Tightly coiled “S” pattern – more moisture
