Hello Everyone. I am new and really loving it here. I read yesterday that in order to get the correct type I need to let my hair dry naturally with no products and no combing. So here is a photo. Can you please help me with my type.

beautiful! 2b? 2c? Your hair is definitely more than just a little wavy, so more than 2a, but I don't see the kind of ringlets I think of as being 2c. Your length and thickness and wave are a lot like my BF's, but his hair forms ringlets at the ends, so I think of him as being 2c.

Lovely, in any case!

I'm thinking 2b as well. Pretty. I wish my hair did that!

Right off the top of my head: 2B.

Wow Ladies. That you for the wonderful words. You made my day.

It looks like 2b to me.

I vote 2B as well.

I also have to add that your hair looks really great untouched and air dried!

It looks shockingly close to 2c to my eyes. Also looks like a iii, but that particular factor can't be eyeballed very well.

True. Some of us didn't see spirals develop until the hair got longer. Mine don't show up until about APL because they're long, loose spirals. (I blow-dried them straighter for the sig pic, which is why my hair doesn't look at all like 2C, but it is.)

Wow, what nice hair you have! Your natural waves are lovely.

I would say you're a 2b or 2c.

March 18th, 2009, 12:27 PM
Oh , what nice hair and nice color ! I say 2b , maybe , I think so .

Thank you so much everyone. I am on top of the world. I really appreciate all of your wonderful comments.

What gorgeous hair! I think you're closer to being 2c to be honest, it looks like you have a lot of curl going on there, and a few more inches and it will spiral around. It's lovely!

March 18th, 2009, 01:37 PM
you guys have been so great. Thanks
I have one more question. Is my hair what you would consider APL?

March 18th, 2009, 01:41 PM
Yes, it looks like you are at APL. Yay we're length twins! :)

I vote 2B. It might go either straighter or curlier as it gets longer, but right now, it looks like a solid 2B to me.

March 18th, 2009, 05:30 PM
Cute. :D
I vote 2b.

March 18th, 2009, 05:32 PM
Well, I hate to go against the grain, but I really vote for 2c. You have such well defined waves, that I can't be totally sure it's 2b. I love your color, and glad you're here! :flower:

March 18th, 2009, 05:48 PM
VERY pretty! I love the consistent waves! I vote 2b, also! :)
