We're not sure how to best describe this texture, though we love it. It's very lightly processed for texture, but not that much. It's not quite coarse, but it's textured enough so that it's not silky either. It's a great African American texture for someone who still wants that silky feel, or someone who is biracial or Latina. It's not silky and unbelievable, but it's not coarse and still has a lot of sheen.
The hair does not need to be flat ironed, it moves and bounces and holds curls well.
