Best Haircuts for Curly Hair


Straight Hair Type 1

It's the most resilient Hair Type. It has the most shine of the 4 Hair Types. It's almost impossible to curl and
difficult to damage. This Hair Type has a tendency to be some what oily. Hair fibers have a structure consisting of several layers. Starting from the outside: 1) the cuticle which consists of several layers of flat,  thin cells laid out overlapping one another as roof shingles, 2) the cortex, which contains the keratin bundles in cell structures that remain roughly rod-like; and in some cases, 3) the medulla, a disorganized and open area at the fiber's center. Most common interest in hair is focused on hair growth, hair types and hair care, but hair is also an important biomaterial primarily composed of protein, notably keratin.
