After years of research and testing, Mizani laboratories defined global hair types based on specific-shape criteria and utilizing a scientific approach to measuring features of human-hair strands, including curve diameter, curl index, number of twists and number of waves. This research resulted in the identification of eight distinct hair types worldwide:
TYPE I – Straight to Minimal Wave
TYPEII – Open Wave (Loose S-Shaped curves)
TYPE III – Wavy (Distinct S-shaped curves with uniform wave pattern)
TYPEIV – Curly (Defined, mixed curl patterns: loops to spirals; ringlets to corkscrews)
TYPE V – Very Curly (Defined curl with S-shapes forming into coils)
TYPE VI – Coiled (Loose afro-medium coils close to the scalp)
TYPE VII – Very Coiled (Tight afro-distinct, springy coils closer to scalp)
TYPE VIII – Extremely tight afro-interlocking coils and zig-zag patterns
By identifying your curl type, you can then select the most appropriate hair products to maintain your desired style.
