Doctors for Types of hair

Hair types are mainly based on the curl pattern of the hair. The amount of curl in your hair is determined by the hair follicles and depends on the hair type, which is mainly straight, wavy, curly, and coily. Along with this, hair type also depends on genetics. Let us now try to understand these different types of hair in a better way -

Type 1 straight hair

Type 1 straight hair has no curls. This type of hair has more shine and is difficult to damage. This type of hair is also difficult to curl because sebum easily spreads from the scalp to the ends, due to which it becomes an oily type of hair and it also becomes difficult to style it. There are three different types of Type 1 -

  • 1A- Hair type 1A is straighter, which is also quite thin.
  • 1B- This hair type has straight and slightly curved hair.
  • 1C- Hair type 1C is straight and thick.
