View Full Version : Confirm my hair type, please

May 30th, 2010, 06:32 PM
I've been calling myself a 2A but never did a real typing photo. I am pretty sure I'm a 2-something. Of course, my hair almost never looks like this, because it usually has updo waves.
By the way, the ends are grown out layers from chin length.

So, here are the official hair typing photos. I washed with a shampoo bar and vinegar rinse, then I let it drip dry without touching it. Both of these photos are on the same day, the lighting just happened to hit it differently. Don't mind the frizz, some day I'll figure out how to air dry my hair down without it.

What do the experts (and non-experts) think?

I think your hair looks like 2b to my eyes. I hope you get a lot of opinions.

2b looks about right to me.

I think you might be 2 C (waves with some spiral curls).

You hair might be like mine used to be, the spirals dont come in until it gets longer, but Im sure I can see a few in the ends.

If not then definate 2 B.

I would say 2b or 2c.

Looks like 2b hair

I'd say 2b/c :D

there's a section at the top of the page with an article on how to type your hair. There are pictures for each one, so you should be able to decide easily.

Nice waves!!

ETA: Ok, I just looked at the official hair typing pics. I'd say you're a 2a

Agreed. 2b. :)

I'd say a 2b/2c

Another vote for 2b/2c, I do see a hint of a spiral curl here and there hence the 2c. I'm a 2c and your hair looks very slightly less wavy than mine, but not by much. :)

Concurring with everyone else, 2b/2c. :)
