Understand that there is a difference between kink, curl & coil.
Kink or "kinky hair" refers to hair that has an extremely tight curl to where it's "Z" or zigzag shaped. Type 4b- 4c
Curly hair refers to hair that maintains a more circular or spiral shape resulting into a looser pattern than kinky hair. Type 3a-3c
Coily hair is quite similar to kinky hair. Rather, the hair has a tigher spiral rather than a zigzap shape causing the hair to be much thicker. Type 4a.
