Hair Types

The following is a breakdown of kinky-curly hair types based on the hair typing system created by stylist Andre Walker (of Andre Walker Hair and the Gold System).
Having a general idea of your child’s hair type is a very important step in creating a daily hair care regime that actually works.

The hair typing system is quite a controversial topic among the natural hair community as some curlies believe that curly is curly and shouldn’t be separated into subsets.

The reality (in my opinion) is that everyone’s texture is different and unique to them – so unique, in fact, that an individual may have more than one “type” of hair on their head (which is another reason why some curly’s shun the typing system). With that being said, I’ve found that the typing system is still a great guideline to use to help you determine the type of hair products that may or may not work in you or your brown baby’s hair.

For example, even though my daughter has two very distinct hair types on her head (4-a and 4-b) I was able to use the hair typing system to discover that some products formulated for 4-c’s can be too heavy for my daughter’s type of hair.

* * *

I often get asked at what point the typing system can be implemented on a child’s hair. Using my own children as a guideline, their “true” hair type did not appear until they were almost a year old; but you ultimately have to make the determination of whether or not the typing system can be applied to your child.

* * *

Ultimately, don’t look at the typing system as a full-proof solution, but as a great starting point. It will hopefully help you to narrow down hair products and be a great guideline to help you and your child through your natural hair journey.

Type 3 Natural Hair

3a - Twirly

3Asmall

Your child may be a 3a curly kid if they have big loose curls that are about the size of jumbo sidewalk chalk. Their hair may have a perpetual sheen and be seriously affected by climate. If your child’s hair “grows” after being out on a particularly humid day, they are more than likely a 3a curly kid.

3b - Spirally

3Bsmall

Your little one may be a 3b curly if they’ve got well-defined curls that range from bouncy ringlets to tight corkscrews. Curls are about the size of a sharpie and can get quite temperamental if too many styling products are used.

More examples

3b hair types

 

3c - Coily

3Csmall2

Your child may have a 3c hair type if they have defined tight curls that look like corkscrews. Type 3c curls are approximately the circumference of a pencil or straw with lots and lots of strands densely packed together.

Type 4 Natural Hair

4a - Springy

4Asmall

Your little one may have type 4a hair if they have hair that is tightly coiled and when stretched creates an “S” pattern. You can see a distinct curl pattern with this hair type and it tends to hold moisture relatively well.

More examples

4a hair types

 

4b - Crimpy

4Bsmall

Your child may have type 4b hair if their hair has less of a defined curl pattern and creates what appears to be a “Z” formation when stretched. The hair will have bends and sharp angles and a cotton-like feel.

More examples

4b hair types

 

4c - Ziggly

4Csmall

Your little brown baby is a 4c hair type if her hair is densely packed with tightly kinked strands. This hair type is capable of having a distinct curl pattern, but the proper level of moisturizing has to be achieved. This hair type is most often described as being a “more challenging version” of 4b hair. It has a tendency towards being dry, so constant moisturizing is key. 4c hair is known for shrinking down to 75% of its true length.

    Hi. My daughter neteru is 10 months. Her hair is growing wonderfully. According to the chart I believe she is either 3c or 4a (she actually appears in between to me)… When I was or comb her hair it straightens out completely and it holds moisture easily which I believe she gets from her dad. The back of her is like mine though (4c) and gets very dry.

    Her hair itches her a lot! So I find myself washing it daily. After washing I always put olive oil in as it’s still damp and then putting moisturiser in the plaiting it and leaving the plaits in over night (I always wash it at night just before bed)

    Your article said that I shouldn’t wash daily so I’m wondering if there is any advice on how to stop itching?

    Thanks

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Try mixing some jojoba oil, coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil in an applicator bottle and massaging her scalp with that mixture to relieve the itch. Washing daily works for some, but long term, you run the risk of her hair suffering from hygral fatigue. Every time you add water to her hair, the hair shaft expands. When it dries, it contracts. That constant expanding and contracting can really do a number on the hair after a while.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi KayC,

      Don’t stress yourself over the typing system. They are only guidelines, not hard and fast rules. She could very well be a mixture of a few hair types. Pick the closest and start there with your product selections. You can modify as you go. 🙂

  5. Samaria says:

    Hi my daughter has all three type fours and idont know what to do with her hair product wise because her hair soaks up mositure so fast so its hard to keep moisture in can you give me any ideas

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Samaria,

      Multiple hair types is very normal. Are you sealing with a butter or an oil after you’ve applied water or a leave-in? Are you putting her hair in protective styles 70% of the time? Those two things will help her hair to retain moisture longer. Product selection is primarily going to be about trial and error. You’ll have to learn her hair and react to it accordingly. A rule of thumb: If you use a product – be it shampoo, or a leave in – and her hair just doesn’t feel good after using it (it feels rough, limp, stiff), then move on to something new.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Afurakani says:

        Peace! My daughter is a TRU 4c….for the first time, i wet spritzed her hair with water before bed..then i saturated her crown with Coconut oil & put her on a Silk scarf. Her hair was so moisturized the next rising, i was amazed… like , is this really happening.
        And , my purpose of doing this was as a prepoo, i was/did wash her hair upon rising…Is there someway to keep her hair saturated with oil and not having to wash it out? Will the abundance of oil have her scalp itchy
        /sweaty in between shampoos? Also, i get confused with the LOC method & sum suggest the OLC, sum sort of variation? Can you suggest what’s best for 4C hair?…btw. Thank you soo much for your research and putting it in this thorough formation.

  6. jezell jones says:

    Hello, my son is six months is it too early know what his hair type is? It looks like 4a& 3c. His hair is 6 to 7 inches long all over. It gets dry easily as well. Is it too early to mess with his hair? Also what were some ways to keep your little one down long enough to do her hair? Is it ok to use these product on my six month old baby? If so what should i use to keep his hair healthy and growing? Do you have an email where I can continue to message you further?

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Jezell,

      I don’t have tons to time to do regular personal consultations, but I’d love to address a few of your questions here.
      It is a little soon to try and assess his hair type. Generally, a baby’s hair goes through a lot of changes up to around 18 months. His hair may change textures, or he may lose his hair all together which would be completely normal. The best thing to do to keep it moisturized is to spritz his hair with water between washings and seal in that moisture with an oil like extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. Shea Moisture and Cara B. have baby lines that work well on little ones.

      As far as keeping your son still long enough to do his hair, there really is no full-proof solution for that. You’ll just sort of have to move with him until he gets a little older. Distraction works well though, so hair time would be a great time to pull out a favorite toy, keys, a tablet – anything that would keep him occupied while you try and do his hair.

      The main thing you have to remember now is to seal his hair with an oil or butter after moisturizing with water or a leave-in, and to wet his hair before applying any product. It sounds like his hair is long enough to begin doing some protective styling. (Braids, twists, cornrows). That will help you with moisture retention as well.

      Good luck! 🙂

  7. Nicki says:

    Hey Kesha! 🙂

    My daughter is 2 years old and I am having the hardest time figuring out what to use to keep her hair moisturized. She is between a 4A-4B hair type, her hair is soft as cotton and easily breaks. I took her to a salon and got what I thought was a protective style, but it literally popped off from the root in one area of her head. I am afraid to do anything to it other than loose ponytails and twists that I seal with Kera Care leave in conditioner. I have used Design Essential and Kera Care shampoos and conditioners, but it really strips her hair. Any suggestions on protective styles and moisturizing oils/conditioners that would be best for her hair type?

  8. Ginny says:

    Hi there.

    My daughter is 11 months and I always make sure that the shampoos and conditioners I wash her hair with are tear free. In particular are the 4c shampoo sets tear free?

  9. Brittny says:

    Hello, I have a 4 year old who definitely has type 4c. Wash day is beyond difficult because I’m always trying to find a good product that doesn’t leave her hair dry and hard. I haven’t found a product with enough good slip as a de tangler Her hair doesn’t hold shine much but I’m guess it’s because of her hair color. What kinds of products do you suggest? Her hair isn’t growing much either.

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Brittny,

      Have you checked to see if you have hard water? It may be that as opposed to your product selections. You can get a special paper from your hardware store to check. If you DO have hard water, there’s your issue. You’ll have to wash her hair with bottled distilled water from then on. If your water is fine, take a few of these questions into consideration:

      Do you condition her hair weekly? 4c hair needs lots of extra moisture and conditioning. You don’t have to spend money on a complicated conditioner, you can easily make one at home. You can find a few recipes here: http://curlz.wegotkidz.com/4-homemade-deep-conditioning-treatment/. When you wash, do you do it in sections making sure not to pile the hair on top of her head? Do you seal with an oil or butter after washing? Does she sleep on a satin pillowcase or with a bonnet? If you answered “no” to any of those questions, those would be some great places to start.

      Product selection is primarily going to be about trial and error. Everyone’s hair is unique and will require a unique regimen and products. With that being said, Shea Moisture and Aunt Jackie’s are great brands that would be great to start with.

      Good luck! 🙂

  10. Karla says:

    Hi, my 5y/o daughter has type 4c hair which is extremely short at just 3 inches when stretched. It is extremely coarse and very thick on top yet the sides and back of her hair show signs of thinning and breakage. I tend to style her hair twice a week, plaiting it into between 8-20 plaits. Do you have any tips on how to make it more manageable as at present I can only comb her hair after washing and conditioning it. Also is there any way to encourage her hair to grow longer as she often sees girls her age with much longer hair and wishes hers could grow longer too.
    I would also appreciate any alternative suggestions for products to use on her hair as I am in the UK and the products listed are not available to buy here.

    Many thanks

    • Latoya Coleman says:

      Wow same situation exactly. My daughter is a 4c and has about 4inches. She has a huge bald spot in the back and her sides are thinning once again. She is very insecure about her length and parades around with bath towels on her head. I will increase her moisturising and try the bonnet. Nothing keeps her hair moist and soft. Her hair sucks up products like they never existed. Good luck with your daughters hair.

  11. Timyra says:

    I have 3 girls and 2 boys all have different hair types ranging from 3c-4c. If I like a product would it be a problem to try the entire line? Rather than different conditioners from different companies?

  12. Qenyetta says:

    I have a 2 year old her was growing so fast as a infant it was on her back at11 months now it have broke off all around her head not so much the middle I use Jamaica castor oil but her hair is so dry it stay dry I have tried everything nothing seem to work Iam trying to get length were her hair has broke off what can I do

  13. Angelia says:

    My daughter is five. She has very dry hair. I’ve tried tons of products, from mane choice, mixed chicks, and now pure coconut oil. I try to wash it once a week and put it in a protective style. While in those styles, I grease her scalp and slick her edges usually. Either she will have beads on the ends or this time, I just left them down and put them in different styles. She sleeps in a satin bonnet. I just don’t know what else to do. The last time I put in the coconut oil and rinsed it out after washing, was that right? Should I keep it in there? HEEEELLP! My hair was really long as a child, but my Mom permed it. I have not permed her hair, but I recently put a texturizer in her hair, which has helped with combing and holding moisture. I’ve taken your list of products down to buy those and try those, but I just need some help on what I need to do with her hair daily. Thanks!

  14. Taea says:

    I put a texturizer in my daughters hair last year for the first time, so it would help making combing her hair easier and less painful. Shes 4 now. I am thinking about having her go back to her natural texture. How long do I have to wait until i know her true texture, and in the meantime what shampoo and conditioner do I use for her hair?

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Taea,

      Healthy hair grows about 1/2 inch a month, so with that information you can gauge how long it would take to see noticeable growth. Make sure she wears plenty of protective styles because the line where her processed hair and the natural hair meets will be very sensitive and require gentle care. As far as what shampoo and conditioner you use, that’s going to boil down to trial and error. I can name products all day, but only you can truly determine the right product combination for her unique type, texture, and porosity. I would personally recommend making your own conditioners at home. Here’s a great article on some simple recipes that you can try: http://curlz.wegotkidz.com/4-homemade-deep-conditioning-treatment/

      Good luck! 🙂

  15. Shantay says:

    My daughter is 3 and her hair broke off along the sides and the back of her head. The rest of her hair is still thick and healthy. What can I do to get her hair back, because it was long and now the back is just gone. Thanks

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Shantay,

      The goal is to figure out why her hair broke off in the first place. Was there possibly a protective style that was installed too tightly? Does one of the products you use contain protein? Is she sleeping on a satin pillowcase or wearing a satin bonnet to bed EVERY night? Maybe one of those questions can help you get to the route of the issue. Once you’ve established why her hair is breaking then you can correct the issue and begin to repair. Deep conditioning weekly with a homemade recipe can restore hair to its proper hydration levels and help with growth. Make sure she sleeps on satin every night, and that she wears plenty of protective styles (braids, twists, cornrows) that aren’t too tight around her edges.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

    Hello, my daughter is 11 and I have struggled with her hair. I recently relaxed her hair and that was the biggest mistake ever. Since the relaxer she has had so much breakage and her edges are damaged. I would like to go back natural and I need help. What are the first steps I should take for this process. I have been keeping it braided because there is nothing I can do with it anymore. Please help…

  19. Sonia says:

    Hi, I have a 1 1/2 year old .. Since the beginning if this year her hair been slowly getting drier and breaking off on the sides and the back and on top of that I’ve caught her a few times pulling strands out I’m not sure why but she’s always had her hands in her hair since she was born I guess it soothes her, but now I feel like in order to get her hair back on track I’ll have to cut it off and I really don’t want to but it looks bad. I know I’m to blame because of the braids and ponytails I did all the time, thus past month I’ve just been using coconut, olive and Jamaican black castor oil mixed with African Shea butter to keep it moisturized but I can’t tell if its working, I also took her to the Dr to see if they can help. What should I do??

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Sonia,

      I’m so sorry to read that you’re having hair issues. First, look up Trichotillomania and see if your baby girl has any of those symptoms. It’s pretty common actually. If she’s pulling her hair out frequently, this may be the route cause.

      Have you begun a deep conditioning regimen for her? At this point, she’s old enough to do regular deep conditioning treatments after every shampoo. Take a look at this article for details on that: http://curlz.wegotkidz.com/how-to-deep-condition-natural-hair-kids/. Deep conditioning regularly could help out most of your chronic issues with her hair.

      Protective styles shouldn’t harm the hair. They actually promote growth. Now, if they’ve been put in too tightly around the nape and edges, it can cause problems, but protective styles should still be done in her hair regularly. Just don’t forget to moisturize while her hair is in the protective style. Here’s a great article on that: http://www.wegotkidz.com/how-to-take-care-of-braids-and-twists-protective-styles-kids/.

      And don’t forget that oils should only be applied to hair AFTER you’ve applied water or a water-based leave-in conditioner first. Applying oils to dry hair, you run the risk of just sealing in dryness.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Sonia says:

        I will look that up right away! I’ve never thought about deep conditioning her hair probably because I don’t do it on my own hair as much as I should but that’s going to change for the both of us. About the oil applied without water or water based products that’s all I’ve been doing and because of that ive been causing her hair to be constantly dry smh, you have really opened my eyes to our issue…Thank you for your help I really appreciate it!!

  20. voilet says:

    Hi my daughter is 3 months old and she has many different curl patterns. she has tight locked curls on one side , to no curl on the other (4c) and her nape is straight. It’s winter and I’m trying my best to keep her hair hydrated and moisturized with out making it look calmly or using to many products in her hair. At first I didn’t use anything in her hair because she’s a baby, so it became really dry. Then I stated using Jane carter solution as condition ( because there is no chemicals ) and then sealing it with olive oil and castor oil. At first it seemed to be doing the job but now her hair still looks dry. Am I putting to many things in her hair too early ? I just want to know whats the best regiment for a healthy hair journey ? What’s a good shampoo and conditioner and leave in condition for babies. I feel so confused I don’t know if I’m using the right things.

  21. Shay says:

    Good Morning!
    My daughter is 6 months. Of course her hair was fuller and curly (loose curl) when born. Over the last few months, her hair has thinned out drastically. The top of her hair is still curly (loose curls) but the back is very dry and straight. She sleeps on her back (which explains the straight, dry hair) so I went out and got a silk pillow case for her to lay on. I went out and bought a few products to try in her hair to help moisturize it and keep the curl pattern (Shea Moisture, Coconut & Hibiscus Kids curling butter cream and Curly Q’s organic curly hair care, red velvet moisturizing curl cream). It did okay and helped her hair stay curly through the day, even the back. But it seemed that her scalp became irritated with both and her hair seem to thin out even more after using the creams, so I stopped immediately. Right now, I wash her hair with her aveeno bath soap and use baby oil when done. I have no clue what to use because she is so young. I am in need of a shampoo and conditioner to use and moisturizer and possibly something to help her curl pattern. any advice or product suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Hello,
    My daughter Nubia (9mnths) has two of the hair types above. Our hair is very similar but I do whatever to mines. I want to treat he hair right. Right now I use virgin coconut oil mixed in with her shampoo and “Baby don’t bald” after the wash. Her hair gets dry very easily and I sometimes forget to add oil on a daily bases. I looked at the products that are recommended for her hair type but they don’t seem to be made with natural ingredients. I don’t want harsh ingredients in my baby’s hair. What do you recommend that it natural? She also has some breakage in the back and the side edges (from sleeping ) I want to maintain her texture and keep it health and strong and moisturized. I don’t comb her hair and washes it once a week. What exactly do you think would be best? Thank you in advance.

    Hoping you can help! We are living in Africa in a remote village so hair care is not easily accessible for our little girl. All of the women and girls shave their heads. Our little girl is 7 and for 3 months we’ve applied a combo of coconut oil/Shea butter to her hair daily. We also used a coconut oil spray every morning. We consistently sprayed her hair with water before picking it out with the only combs they sell. We even did weekly treatment with an egg/coconut oil/honey wrapped with a warm towel. To say all that… Her hair will not grow. We recently had a friend from South Africa bring us some “hair food” by dark and lovely. It’s a leave in daily that’s a thick coconut oil for very dry and scalp. That’s seemed to help with her itchin and dry scalp. I would say her hair is 4C. Any ideas??

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Alexis,

      Are you spritzing her hair with water and detangling with a wide-tooth comb when her hair is damp and slick with conditioner ONLY? No dry combing or combing with a comb with small teeth. Start from the ends of her hair and work your way up. Don’t comb from the root. Are you deep conditioning (processing the conditioner with heat)? She’s old enough for that. Regular deep conditioning can help with hair softness and manageability.

    Oh my goodness, your website is a so wonderful! Thank you for the thorough information! I think my 13 month old has Type 3…maybe mixed B and C hair based on your descriptions and pictures. So, I’m going to try the products you’ve suggested.

    I just got done reading your “10 of the Best All Natural Products….” post and now I’m wondering about a sealant/oil. So, my question is would either sealant you listed in that post (WonderCurl Get Slick or My Honey Child) be a good choice for Type 3? A lot of her hair is still baby fine, so I don’t want to weight it down. But, I do want the moisture to stay in, which is a bit of a challenge right now. Still trying to figure it all out… Thanks again!

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Kristi,
      Glad you found me! Experimentation is the key to all of this. I can’t tell you what will work for sure. It’s all going to boil down to trial and error. Start with a light sealant like all natural coconut oil first and move up from there if necessary. 🙂

  32. Porsha says:

    Hi Kesha,

    My daughter is 5 years old. Her hair was 4A for the first 3 yrs and it slowly changed to type 4C ziggy after she caught a ringworm in the back of her head. Before this, her hair was fairly long, and now it’s very dry, brittle, and short. And her ends are very coarse. I usually keep it braided, but how often is too often to braid? Any ideas on treatment options to get her hair to being healthy again? Thanks!

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Hi Porsha,
      Deep conditioning with heat weekly or at least every other week would help tremendously. Use heat to process with either a bonnet hair dryer or a warm towel wrapped around her processing cap. It sounds like she would benefit from a trim as well.

    Hi, My name is Danielle my hair type according to your chart is 4 c I am 17 years old and tried almost everything for my hair to keep its thickness and length. However, i followed a trend and straightened the hair to ease the struggles of combing on a daily basis and now i regret it. I left my hair to turn back by itself but my main problem is growing and treating my hair. Could you please suggest some main things i can use to grow my hair quickly? Thank you in advance for your answer, please do not post on facebook as i hardly access my facebook account.

    • Kesha of We Got Kidz says:

      Drink tons of water and eat your fair share of leafy greens. Healthy hair growth starts from the inside. Deep condition weekly or at least every other week. No need to purchase anything, make your own conditioners at home. Just Google “natural hair conditioner recipes” for some good ones. Wear LOTS of protective styles (braids, twists, cornrows). There’s no such thing as “quick” hair growth. Growing hair long and healthy takes consistency and patience. Hope that helps!

    Hi, i am just not sure what type of hair my baby has…but her growth has come to a complete stand still!! I wish there was a way that i could post a pic of her hair so that you could help me figure out the type so i can properly care for it!! Her hair is not kinky but somewhat silky curly if that makes sense! Her edges arent growing in either and its not from me pulling them up in ponytails because i rarely pull up her sides in hear of breakage! Please help

      I would say between 3a and 3b! She just turned 2! When she was born she had a head full of silky straight fine hair…and i thought it would be down her back by now!!

    My 2 1/2 year old daughters hair just wont grow. When it does grow it takes forever. My hair is curly/silky but tangley. But her hair is more of a combination of 41, 4B, & 4C. I have tried everything from coconut oil, olive oil, its me products, carols daughter. I just started using Lush products the “Honey I washed my hair! shampoo it seems to work great. But my daughters hair is always dry no matter how much moisturizers i put in it it still dries up withing the hour. I hate that she will be 3 and her hair is super short. people tells me that when your child’s hair takes forever to grow that means their hair will be thick and long but idk.

    also what type of cob or brush do you recommend using? Do you recommend using an edge control to put her hair in a pony tail?
