The first step in achieving beautiful curls is to understand your curl pattern. Curl patterns range from wavy to coily, and each requires a different level of care.

Tip #3: Moisture or protein products are Key
It's important to know what your hair needs, you can do this by conducting a wet stretch test. This test involves taking a small section (10 strands) of hair and stretching it while wet. If the hair stretches without breaking and returns to its normal state, it's in good balanced condition. If the hair stretches and breaks, it's damaged and requires protein. If the hair barely stretches at all it needs moisture. This will help you in selecting the correct hair care.
