If you want to learn how to create volume, find a girl with some 3c curls and a diffuser, she will show you exactly how to make your hair command attention with a few simple techniques.
How To Do Cute Braided Styles
Just like our type 4 curlies, type 3 curlies have magic fingers too. They can french braid, fishtail braid, braid to the side, braid upside down with a bun on top, you name it they can do it. Styling options are many and these women have tried it all so don’t sleep on a 3 naturalista with 10 fingers and a tutorial, you will not be disappointed.
Frugality – How To Use As Little Product As Possible
Type 3 curlies know how to make a product stretch. How many times have you heard a type 3 curly on a YouTube video say, ‘…and you don’t need a lot’ and by golly, they actually only put a dime size amount in their little hands and somehow their hair looks complete.
If you are a half-a-jar-using type 4 curly you might be giving us the side eye right about now, but it is true! Really you do not need a lot of product for your hair to behave the way it naturally behaves.
Product problems only arise when you are trying to get your hair to do something it doesn’t want to do (like lay perfectly flat), it is important to recognize that when making decisions on product types and how much to use.
How to Enjoy Their Hair
A type 3 curly will have purple hair color with some pink undertones one day and the next day they will go back to a signature black and straightened in the name of boredom.
They might be a bit more daring than their type 4 curly haired friends and despite the dangers of overdoing some things they are willing to take the chance and enjoy what they have here and now.
In every scenario, there needs to be extra care when using heat or color and sometimes because being natural is so new to us, we don’t want to do anything that could mess things up which means that many of us wind up wearing one style and one style only!
It is important to enjoy the experience of being natural regardless of what category you fall into and a purple haired type 3 curly will tell you, ‘its only hair’. If you make a mistake all is not lost, it’s all a part of the learning process so enjoy your hair now and in the moment.
Bottom line is that we can all learn from each other because there is something there for us all to appreciate our various hair journeys.
