Type 3a curls show a definite loopy "S" pattern. Curls are well-defined and springy, as well as naturally big, loose and often very shiny. 3a curls' circumference are sidewalk-chalk size. Generally, this hair type can be easily straightened, but is very much affected by the climate. Curly Twirlies can use a variety of styling products to achieve curl formation and definition.
Quick tip: Use gels and creams that offer light moisture and curl definition. Milks and smoothies work great!
