Finding styles for type 3 hair can be sort of tricky. It’s all about finding style that will hold and last. We want to help you achieve 3 styles for your hair that will help you get through this quarantine because we know keeping our hair healthy is always the goal.
The halo braid is when you create long braids and wrap it around your head while pinning it in place. This would be a great style for long curly hair or if you have short curly hair you can insert braiding hair to give that longer look. The halo braid can be the perfect quarantine style for keeping your hair out of your way and keeping your ends protected. You can achieve this style with products found on our website. You will need a good gel styler. Our best selection is the CURLS Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste. This paste is formulated with organic blueberry extract, argan oil (proven to encourage hair growth) mango and shea butter, argan oil. This styler will hold the hairstyle in place due to its nature of sculpting.
One of my favorite styles and protective hairstyles! I have type 3b hair and have done this style on a few occasions. To create Senegalese Twist you wrap the braiding hair around the root of your natural hair then make a two-strand twist from the root of the hair until the desire of the length. You can recreate this look using products from our website. We recommend a moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and a spray leave-in conditioner to keep your hair well moisturized during the time you are wearing your Senegalese twist. The styler we believe will give you the best results is the CURLS Ultimate Styling Collection B Smooth Curl Butter! It provides a no-flake hold for protective style. Depending on how well you take care of this hairstyle it should last 2-3 weeks. Don’t forget to select a good oil to keep your scalp and hair moisturized throughout the 2-3 weeks.
Another one of our favorite styles for type 3 hair is the Heatless Flexi Rod style. For those of you who may not be familiar with Flexi Rods, they are long foam rods that can bend and twist as you desire. They are a great and heatless way of creating curls for all hair types. You can shop the perfect products for creating gorgeous curls using Flexi rods. When shopping make sure to include a hydrating shampoo and conditioner that make your hair shiny and bouncy. Our style of choice is Chubby Curls Vanilla Styling Cream. It offers a medium hold and is great for wash and go styles, finger coils, twist outs, rod sets, Bantu knots, and more.
