With the support of our world renowned scientists in the United States and France, MIZANI has pioneered the Natural Curl Key™. After years of research and testing, our laboratories defined global hair types based on specific-shape criteria and utilising a scientific approach to measuring features of human-hair strands, including curve diameter, curl index, number of twists and number of waves. This research resulted in the identification of eight distinct hair types worldwide: Type I – Type VIII.
The MIZANI Natural Curl Key™ is an easy-to-use reference guide that allows professional stylists and clients, to better identify hair types and determine its key characteristics and special needs, as well as the most beneficial care and service suggestions.
