Hi everyone :) I'm trying to determine my hair type but I can't decide if it's fine or medium. What do you think?

I'm going to vote Fine to Medium :o I think I once read that hair is usually considered Fine when you hold a single hair between your fingers and you cannot feel it, Medium when you can barely feel it and Thick when you can feel the hair obviously between the fingers. But it can be very subjective in my opinion and can vary allot whenever someone has very sensitive fingers for example.

You can't say from afar on a picture if it is F, M, or C. You have to decide that for yourself; sorry.

As far as texture goes, I think it's 1c/2a.

Fine hair would have a smaller appearance, like a baby's hair.

I agree with lapushka. You can't really tell from afar. It looks like type 1c/2a to me too.

I think it's more likely to be medum than fine because you can see some individual hairs in the photo, whereas fine would look more like a mass of hair blending into one (I think). But again, it is really difficult to tell from a pic! We've had a couple of interesting threads discussing this, let's see ...

Hopefully there's something in there that will help you decide :)

There is always the strand thickness test you can try if you have a lot of patience and a reasonably steady hand http://science-yhairblog.blogspot.com/2012/06/is-your-hair-fine-medium-or-coarse-how.html

Thanks for the replies guys :)
What do you think my brother's hair texture is? If you have any ideas about curliness and volume, that would be great too.

His hair looks like it is probably fine textured. You can't judge curl type or thickness at such a short length.

Second that! ^^ Also, why your brother? Why not you? :flower:

Fine and/or medium for you both. I have all 3 types of hair on my head, but I believe the fine hairs predominate. Maybe.

Oh my bad, and I had replied to you first too. :o LOL! I guess you had already asked us for your texture! :roll: That is just typical of me. :p :lol:
