5 Styles to Try If You Have Type 3 Curls

It’s no secret that no two hair patterns are created equal. That doesn’t mean, however, that there aren’t some key styles that you can look to for your hair type. Here are five styles to try if you have Type 3 curls.

Wash & Go

The wash & go style is one of the most frequent styles used by those with natural hair. That doesn’t mean, however, that everyone has given the look a try. If you have Type 3 curls and haven’t tried a wash & go, you’ll definitely want to consider it. Our Curl Mane-tenance – Defining Curl Whip can help you achieve that.

Heatless Waves

Also known as a braid out, heatless waves are a great way to manipulate your spirals into giving you the look that you desire. Prior to braiding your hair though, be sure to pack on the moisture with the Seal It Up – Hydrating Sealing Butter.

Top Bun and Scarf With Bangs

Are you used to wearing your spirals up in a top bun? Next time you feel like wearing your hair up in a bun, dress it up a bit by leaving your bangs out and tying a printed scarf around your head. Be sure to use our Quench – Moisture Intensive Leave-In Conditioner to add extra moisture to your hair.

Side Braids or Twists With Ponytail

If you’re looking for a way to upgrade your traditional ponytail, try adding a few braids or twists on both sides of your head prior to solidifying your ponytail. Our SLICKED! Flexible Styling Glue is perfect to help you lay down your braids, twists, and/or edges for this style.


Though those who have Type 3 hair may not think that flexi rods can add a new look to their hair, they absolutely can. For example, if you want to have tighter spirals, change the size of your flexi rods to be smaller to achieve that look. They are also a great no heat way to manipulate your hair to the pattern that you want it to be. Our Frizz Patrol – Anti-Poof Twist & Curl Setting Mousse can help achieve this style.
