Type one hair is classified as hair that has no curl pattern and is naturally straight. Type one hair tends to be shiny and oily due to the hair strand’s lack of curl. Since the hair strand is completely straight, natural oils that come from the scalp can reach all the way down the hair shaft. Within the Type 2 category, there are Type 1a, Type 1b and Type 1c hair categories.
