Type 3 and Type 4 Side by Side Comparison
The answer: Type 4 or short curl pattern.
The Type 3 curl pattern is much harder to lock. Actually, wash and go is the easiest maintenance for this type of natural hair. This curl pattern cost less to maintain and is accepted in more "social circles" in its natural state.
Those with a Type 4 curl pattern typically would be more dependent on relaxers to achieve a sleeker, straighter look. Also, texurizing a type 4 curl pattern will NOT deliver a Type 3 curl pattern.
