View Full Version : Hair Type Help

I have my hair type set at 1c/2a, but I'm not entirely sure if that's right. If anyone could help me type I'd appreciate it lots :D

Washed and air dried. It hasn't been touched at all.

I think 2a/2b.

Yes, I'd also put in a vote for 2a/2b. Your wave pattern is nice and distinct, which in my mind puts you in the 2-category.

It seems you're one of those people whose wurlies don't start until below the ears/nape. I'm the same, which lead me to believing I had mainly straight hair, until it was long enough to prove otherwise. :D

Thank you for your input! You know, until a few months ago I had no idea I had wavy hair because I never let it grow long enough or left it to its own devices. I figured I just had frizz and fought it. Now I'm glad I'm a wurly head :D

I'd say at least a 2a, maybe a 2b.

Thanks! I think I'll go ahead and change it to 2a/2b :)

Your hair looks close to the way mine looks when it's air-dried. Certainly at least a 2A. Very pretty!

Wow, your hair looks a lot like mine when it was shorter; I'd never thought of myself as being so wavy. I'm now just past tailbone-- the length seems to pull out the wave, especially on the canopy and top layers. But underneath, I'm bursting with waves.

Lovely hair/Happy growing!

yes, I'd say 2a/2b. Many of us have 'mixed' hair - straight in parts, much wavier in others, making hairtyping hard. But yours is definitely in the realm of wavy! And lovely, thick and healthy looking, too.

I vote 2a. I don't think it's quite a distinct enough pattern for 2B. :)

Thanks so much for your replies, everyone :D

I agree with 2A.
