Curl ID: Ouidad's 4 Curl Types and What they Need to Thrive

Loose

A lazy, S-shape curl pattern resembling a stretched-out slinky. The curl pattern may be non-uniform and inconsistent throughout—such as flat at the crown, wavy in the middle, dry on the ends. Naturally occurring dehydration and any damage can “straighten” out the curl pattern, and cause loose curls to lose internal memory. Recommendation: Avoid heavy moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, and any drying ingredients like polymers and alcohol. Use products that enhance the formation of the loose curl and plump hair from within. Ouidad’s product pick: Playcurl
