This hair type has no natural curl. Though it’s often lauded as the most manageable, studies have shown that straight hair actually tangles easier than other types and is more prone to split ends. Straight hair is, however, the most resilient hair type and resists damage. Straight hair types should use a flat paddle brush with wide bristles that separates the hair without damage.
Straight hair tends to be oilier than curly hair because the oil comes from the follicle and runs down the length. To combat this, straight hair types should wash their hair every day with a gentle shampoo and avoid products with alcohol high on the ingredients list.
