View Full Version : Help Settle my Hair Type?

August 16th, 2017, 12:32 PM
Hi everybody,

I would just like some help deciding for sure on what my wave pattern is. I have FINALLY gotten successful hair typing photos from two different occasions, so I can be confident that my hair's natural pattern is represented well. With hair that takes like 5 hours to dry, this is really exciting.

So, without spoiling it by telling you all what I think, what do YOU think?

(Also, I apologize for all the awkward photos. Those last three, I just lodged my phone in a gap in my deck and was playing with my hair, trying not to lean out of shot.)

I would say 2a :) and absolutely gorgeous :D. Impressive length and beautiful colour, too.

I agree with paulownia that looks like a 2A to me. You have beautiful hair!

I say 2a as well. Very beautiful, that's the wave pattern I wish I had throughout my hair. :p

Another voice for 2a :)

I love your hair!

August 16th, 2017, 04:04 PM
A very beautiful example of 2a hair :crush: You must get so many compliments!

August 16th, 2017, 04:21 PM
I would say 2a/b.

August 16th, 2017, 04:31 PM
I agree with the other responses: 2a

August 16th, 2017, 04:51 PM
I think more like 2a/b. Very beautiful!

August 16th, 2017, 05:22 PM
I would agree with 2a/b because your hair seems to want to clump more than I think 2a usually does. Is your under layer of hair curlier than the canopy by any chance?

Its yummy hair, and i have no clue what type it is.. But I'm jealous :)

August 16th, 2017, 07:25 PM
I disagree. I think it's 2B, full on.

August 16th, 2017, 07:57 PM
I disagree. I think it's 2B, full on.

I concur. 2a is not that "curly". OP is definitely 2B

They look like braidwaves to me, so I would say 2b :)

Beautiful hair! Lovely length, waves and colour. Looks like 2b to me.

August 17th, 2017, 03:37 PM
I would say 2b, when comparing with the images and description in the visual hairtyping guide.

August 17th, 2017, 03:42 PM
For a true 2b these are quite "loose" braidwaves, hence my mixture of 2a/b.

August 17th, 2017, 05:49 PM
It's so beautiful! Wish I could help more with typing, but I bow to the experts.

August 17th, 2017, 09:59 PM
I think the first pic looks like 2b to me, and the other pics look a little more like 2a. You might get different results based on styling, but it looks like your hair is probably capable of being full on 2b.

I'd agree with this assessment as well.
It's very beautiful :)

It is very beautiful! Somehow forgot to mention that. :o I wish sometimes my waves were this well behaved, but sadly they just "stick out". LOL (might also be the layers)

Thank you so much to everyone for all the replies and input! And the compliments, you all are so sweet! :bunny:

It looks like the general consensus is... just about where I was thinking, myself. I definitely think I'm a pretty solid 2A... at least. A good amount of my hair in its under/back layer has strands that are definitely 2B as well, but it's not a majority. So it looks like 2A/B is the final judgement!

Thank you so much everyone!!
