Your 'Ruka Hair Type' is

Moderately Stretched

Curl Type: Moderately Stretched

Your naturally tightly kinky coily hair when relaxed or blown out appears straighter and longer but with small visible kinks that still give your straightened hair a textured look - as opposed to a silky one. Wearing your hair in a permanent or semi permanent state can make it more susceptible to breakage so don't scrimp out on regular deep conditioning and professional protein treatments.

As you try to maintain the stretched look inbetween your straightening treatments, remember to always use a heat protector prior to using heat styling tools on your hair to limit the amount of heat damage inflicted on the hair.
