Are you ready to unlock the full potential of your 3A curly hair? Embracing your natural curls can be an enriching journey that begins with understanding your unique hair type and finding the right styles and products that work for you. We sat down with renowned hair expert Linda Miller to gather her wisdom on the most flattering cuts, styling techniques, and care tips for 3A curls.

Understanding 3A Curls

Miller explains that 3A curls are defined by their S-shaped pattern and medium curl density. This texture often presents a mix of fine to medium hair strands and a tendency for frizz. To manage the frizz, Miller recommends applying a leave-in conditioner or curl cream to damp hair, followed by scrunching with a microfiber towel.

Choosing the Right Cuts and Styles

When it comes to haircuts, Miller emphasizes the importance of finding a stylist who understands curly hair. Opt for a dry cut, as it allows the stylist to see how the curls fall naturally and create a shape that complements your hair type. For those interested in bangs, Miller suggests avoiding blunt cuts and opting for a softer, textured fringe that can be adjusted as the hair dries.
