View Full Version : Am I 1c/2a or 2a or 2a/2b?

April 26th, 2008, 05:52 AM
I decided that it might be a good idea to reclassify my hair.

I decided on 2a/2b m/c and iii

I was so surprised that upon measuring my pony tail it came out at 11cms circumference :D That was a surprise! I didnt realise it was so thick I thought it was less.

I just wanted to ask what you all thought about my 2a/2b. I was wondering if it was either 1c/2a 2a or 2a/2b! What do you all think? I am a mix of waviness you see and its different each time I wash!

I would say 1c/2a, because your waves don't start until your shoulders, and they are not very big at all, they are very loose. You do have more 2c type hair at the very end, but a lot of people have wavier hair at the very end, so I would just go with 1c/2a.

I'd say you're a 2a, because 1c is hair that is "straight with body wave and one or two visible S-waves (e.g. nape of neck or temples)" whilst 2a is hair that has "loose, stretched out S-waves throughout the hair", which you seem to have. This is assuming that your hair is brushed in that pic. My hair, which I've typed as a 2a, when freshly washed, has ringlets at the nape and temples (which can be very resilient and refuse to disappear), and S waves throughout, but brushed is like the second pic in my signature.

I'd say your a 2a.
I consider myself a 1c and your wave pattern is much more distinct than mine and it almost looks as if your ends have a ringlet thing going on.

I'd say 2a.
And your hair is lovely. :)

wonderful 2 a hair for me!

Righty thank you :) I will change it to 2a.
Oh and I will have to get a photo of it airdried and not brushed too next time I wash!

Thank you for the lovely comments :D

if your hair was not brushed I would say 2a but if you brushed it then it may be 2a/2b cause you may have brushed more waves out
your hair is very pretty though

1c/2a would be my guess. And it's very beautiful!:flowers:

I think you're a brushed out 2a.

Try a picture where you haven't done anything but air dry/detangled with a wide-tooth comb.

I think you would be a 2a. I'm a 1c/2a, and your's is just slightly wavier than mine. Your hair is beautiful, btw.

Well will chance it to 2a for now and next time I wash I will get a photo before brushing. I guess my bristle brush would break waves ;)

Thanks :D

It looks like 2a, brushed out.

Also, it looks vaguely more like M texture to me based on the current photo. Medium hair photographs as a somewhat softer blurry effect. Coarse hair has a wirier appearance in photos. Although, a more focused close-up photo would be easier to identify this. :)

So when you hair type after you wash and air dry then you can use a wide tooth comb to get out the tangles?

I took a photo a few weeks ago (I couldnt get on the site again til now) and this is what my hair dried like.

I am intending to get another photo because sometimes its even wavier. (like when I washed today)

Definitely a 2a maybe even with some b. Looks kinda like mine ;)

June 24th, 2008, 05:22 PM
Well, I just hunted down this thread to post these pictures. I posted it originally in the wrong thread. I hope its okay to transfer it to the right one?

Would I still be classed 2a/2b with these taken into consideration?

This is when its still slight damp and finger combed

Looks a lot like mine before I comb, if not more wavy. I'd say 2a.

June 24th, 2008, 08:14 PM
I agree with 2A, and it is beautiful.

June 24th, 2008, 08:18 PM
Okay I just looked at the new pics. I say 2a/2b now. SO pretty!

June 24th, 2008, 08:34 PM
I agree with 2A, and it is beautiful.

Ditto. Very pretty.

I'd say 2a/2b now - it seems to almost spiral

June 24th, 2008, 08:50 PM
I'd say 2a. You're a smidge wavier than I am, and I'm very much on the border.

June 24th, 2008, 11:12 PM
I agree with most and say 2a
