Straight Hair Hair Type 1


Type 1 - Straight Shooter (Straight)

  1. Type 1 hair is our straight shooter, also known as straight hair.
  2. Type 1 is hair that is naturally straight with no curl pattern. Straight hair can typically grow easier and faster than the other hair types.
  3. Type 1 has the tendency to be greasy and shiny. This is only because the straight strands allow the natural oils from your head to reach all the way down the hair shaft. 


A few some celebrities that have the straight hair type: Cher, Kendall Jenner, Rachel Bilson, Frieda Pinto


Type 1A

Type 1A is hair that has baby-fine, completely straight strands. This type is straight from root to tip. Typically, type 1A hair has little to no body and has a difficult time keeping a curl. This hair type is actually pretty rare. 

Type 1B

Type 1B is not completely flat and has more body than its Type 1A counterpart. Most straight-haired women will fall into this hair type category.

Type 1B is distinguished from 1A by its ability to hold a curl. The ends of Type 1B tend to curl under slightly versus them being completely straight. 

Type 1C

Type 1C is generally straight, has body like 1B, and has a few waves hidden here and there. This hair type has stands that tend to be thick and coarse and has the ability to hold a curl.

Type 1C can also have a perfectly tousled look when left to dry naturally. 

Tips & Tricks for Our Straight Shooter

The biggest struggle of straight hair is that it tends to get greasy very quickly. The best way to combat that is to wash your hair more often and in between the days you wash your hair use a product like dry shampoo.

Recommended Products: Since this hair type does not have the most body, use volumizing shampoos and conditioners to give your straight hair a little more umph.

You should steer away from products that are heavy so you do not give your hair more reason to produce grease. 

Styling Tips: When styling your hair, (after its dry) you can put a little dry shampoo on your roots to soak up excess oil. You can also try using a texturizing product from root to tip to give your hair more volume.
