Type 3- Curly (Corkscrews)
These curls are tight cork screws. The circumference is the size of a pencil or a drinking straw.This hair type is mostly refered to as Kinky-Curly. The curls are usually fine in texture, not coarse. The curls can be densely packed together or very loose. This hair type can be blow dried straight,but it may be more challenging. 3c hair is the driest of the Type 3 curls and requires more moisture. Because of the springiness and tightness of the curl, 3c curls shrink more than 3b and 3a curls. (Note* It’s common to have more than one curl pattern. )
