View Full Version : What's my hair type?

March 20th, 2008, 01:44 PM
I'm curious about what my hairtype is and was hoping you guys could help me out.

It's about 4'' in circumference, wich makes it ii/iii if I'm not totally mistaking..? I would also say it's about M, maybe F on the hairs closest to my face, but on the other hand there is really thick, coarse hair coming from the nape of the neck..

Here's a picture where it has air-dryed and I (almost) havent touched it while drying.

and here it is after a sloppy brushing

Thanks for the help!

I'd say 1C, possibly 1C/2A. For the fineness, go with what most of your hairs are. If there seems to be an equal amount of two kinds, the go with M-F, for example.

Pretty hair! :smile:

Your hair looks 1c to my eye. As Flaxen said about the texture of your hair, go with what predominates, whether it be fine or medium.

Your hair is lovely! :flowers:

I'd say 1b/1c. Not quite enough wave for a 2a in my opinion.

Thanks for the help! I wouldn't myself call my hair curly. I had a hard time believing that my hair actually was this wavy when airdried untouched, usually it gets combed when moist and due to that it's always completely straight :o

I'm also going CO now, this is after my first CO wash, maybe/hopefully it will encourage the waves a bit!

And thanks also for the kind comments, I have to confess that I haven't given the hair the attention/care that it needs, but that's about to change! It's going to be interesting to see how it reacts when actually taken care of

My previous hair classifiers are lost and I can't find the info for figuring out what mine is. Help!

Definitely 1c, maybe bordering on 2a?

1c or 1c/2a. Too wavy to be 1b but not enough to be solid 2a, I think.

I would say 1c.

ETA: Your hair is a really gorgeous colour, btw. :]

I agree with 1c but close to 2a. (I never can choose just one!)

Another vote for 1c. :)

Thanks for the help! 1c got the majority so I'll go with that:joy:
