View Full Version : Please help me typing my hair

December 15th, 2013, 10:32 AM
When I started growing my hair out, it still had some perm left, so it was difficult to really find the correct category for it.

Then the perm was gone, my hair was still rather short (well at least for LHC standards) and it was rather straight with a slight wave in it, so I typed it 1b.

In the meantime it grew longer, but due to the fact that I wear it up most of the time, it either has bun waves or braid waves, but very rarely it's natural shape. I had the impression though that it got more wavy and tend to type it 1c now.

However, I made a hairtyping picture a couple of days ago: freshly washed, air dried, only a tiny bit detangled with my fingers, no combs or brushes touched it. And now I'm a bit unsure if this is still 1c or 1c/2a already?

What do you guys think?

I don't see the picture. Unless you mean your avatar pic? It's too small for me to tell really.

I'm thinking 2a or 2b.

I'd say 2a.

I would say maybe a 2A.

Definitely not 1b, iit is for almost straight hair.

December 15th, 2013, 02:16 PM
2a here too

December 15th, 2013, 02:46 PM
I think 2a as well!

2a for me too!1 cathegory includes straight types of hair,so definately 2a.

I thinks that's 2b to me, since there are distinct S-shapes. :)

Definitely not a 1 anything. You probably aren't a 3 either. I'd lean towards 2b/2c since it is tough for me to tell if there is corkscrewing at the ends.

2b or 2a methinks.

December 15th, 2013, 05:00 PM
I would say about 2b. :)

I think you are in the 2a - 2b neighborhood with your hair type.

December 15th, 2013, 10:43 PM
Think I'd call it 2a/2b. Your ends are 2b-ish, in my mind.

Looks like my hair type, which I categorize as 1c/2a. My hair is straight on top and wavy towards the bottom as well, but usually only has good waves when I layer my hair. [And I hate layers!] I'd go with 2a for you, since you seem to have really nice waves with a blunt cut.

Thank you all for your help! :grouphug:

I don't have corkscrews, just s-waves. I wasn't that sure because the upper part of my hair is rather straight, but the lower part is definitely wavy. So, I'm taking all your good advice and change my hairtype to 2a.
