our CURL TYPE is determined by the SHAPE of the follicle that your hair grows out of from your scalp. The flatter or more oval-shaped the follicle, the curlier your hair.
The more CIRCULAR the cross-section, the STRAIGHTER your hair. The curl pattern is also identified by the SHAPE that the strand of hair make, whether they KINK, CURL, or WIND around themselves into spirals.
Most people with TEXTURED hair have more than one type of pattern on their head. This is called a combination of kinky coily wavy and curly.
You should determine your hair texture while wet.
