Curl type 1

Curl type 1 is actually not a curl, as this type includes straight hair. With this type of curl, you therefore do not need to use products suitable for curly or wavy hair.

Curl type 2

With curl type 2, your hair has waves. Often people with this curl type think they have straight hair. Do not use too many styling products, as this may cause your curl or waves to sag because the hair becomes too heavy. For this type of curl, it is best to use a good hair mousse to give your curls an extra hold. Try the Wella Professionals EIMI Boost Bounce and then blow-dry your hair with a diffuser!

Curly hair with tight and dense curls that have an 's' or 'z' pattern. This hair type needs a lot of moisture, think of a nourishing yet hydrating leave-in conditioner, oil or a hair mask.
