Getting that defined curl can also mean adding in subtle highlights scattered throughout the hair to achieve that dimension.  The goal is naturally healthy hair, the result is gorgeous defined curls. 

Curl types

1: Straight Hair to Slight Wave

The individual strands may be fine or coarse, thick or thin, but they fall without waving from root to tip. Has a tendency to become more oily than its curlier sisters.

2: Wavy hair

Ranges from tousled texture within the lengths of the hair to the start of undefined curls. This type is perfect for a seamless balayage look.

3: Curly hair with an S shape

Curls range between the size of a tall candle and the size of a drinking straw. Avoid brushing your hair dry or putting it up in ponytails to avoid frizz and breakage.

4: Coils

These are very tight coils around the size of a chopstick. This is the most delicate hair type and requires lots of moisture. This type does well through using mostly wash and wear styles.

When possible try to avoid heat styling – always ensuring you are using a heat protectant when you do. Curly hair is very prone to damage so ensuring safe heat application will protect the curls from damage and frizz.
