Type 3 hair has more defined, springy curls that form spirals or ringlets. If your curls are similar in size to the large sidewalk chalk you used as a kid, then you're Type 3A. If your curls have the circumference of a Sharpie, then you're Type 3B . If your curls have the circumference of a pencil or a straw, then you're Type 3C. Many people believe that Type 3C curls are almost their own category, because they are much tighter corkscrews and generally have much more volume than 3A or 3B curls, yet they are still very different from Type 4.
