View Full Version : Yet another hair typing thread. :)

So this is my hair, unwashed and unbrushed. It looks pretty thick here but when I pull it back the pony's circumference is still pretty small, since I have a lot of layering and thinning to grow out from my pixie cut. If I had to fancy a guess I'd say it's about an inch or two around now. I've sort of considered it a 3, but I think that's just wishful thinking and I'm more of a 2-something. Thoughts? Questions?

It's early to tell, but I'd hazard a guess of 2C.

Mine looked like that at that length. I consider mine a 2c/3a combo. I get spirals on the upper layer, while the parts at the middle back of my head and over the ears are straighter.

Gosh Spirals, I hope my hair looks like yours when it's longer! I want my thickness back so bad... I don't know how to take care of it for a long time so I've been thinning it for years. I once managed to get "Merida" hair (Before Brave came out, unfortunately) with quite a bit of mousse. I could see a high 2 or low 3. Maybe a combo of both?

Gosh Spirals, I hope my hair looks like yours when it's longer! Thanks! I think a 2/3a combo is fairly common. Here's a better picture of the texture:
