Type 3 curly hair has a bit of a tighter “S-shaped" curl pattern than type 2 hair, and is known as “springy/bouncy" with lots of body and definition. Hair is also higher in density but still very soft in texture. It is also more naturally frizzy than type 2, but are still easy to style, therefore gels and creams are often used with this hair type to increase moisture and definition, but also mostly to tame frizz. Protein treatments are still recommended on a regular basis along with deep conditioning periodically. You’d also need to be most careful when applying product to this curl type, as too much product= greasy-looking weighed down curls, and too little= less defined afro (if you desire more defined curls).
