How do you style 3c hair?
Before we get to the looks, a quick reminder: 3c hair is typically defined by its tight curls that are tightly packed together. The best products for your hair are going to be super moisturizing formulas like leave-in conditioners, curl creams, gels, and oils (though your hair’s porosity—aka its ability to get and stay hydrated—will determine your exact product lineup). How you actually apply them will come down to personal preference, but 3c hair usually does best when you finger-rake your conditioners and leave-ins through damp hair, then apply your stylers by scrunching, plopping, or using the praying hands method.
Got it? Cool, now let’s get to what you really came here for: the best 3c hairstyles.
