What’s Your Curl Personality?

So you want to “go Natural” but you don’t know where to start? Unraveling the mysteries of Natural hair can be intimidating because each hair type has its own unique curl characteristics. To guide us, SBH turned to respected author and Natural Hair expert Diane Bailey (pictured here), a.k.a. “The Godmother of Natural Hair.” “The most challenging, yet beautiful Natural hair for sculpting and design are curly-coily hair types commonly known as Type 3 and the coily-kinky hair type or Type 4 hair,” she shares. For more info from hair guru Bailey on spiral styling and curl care, check out the “Decoding Your Curl Personality” story in the Oct./Nov. ’18 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now.
