I have no idea how this hair typing thing works...any help please?
I let it dry untouched after a wash.
Sorry that the color of my shirt blends in with my hair a little, and for the dirty mirror :)

First off, you have absolutely gorgeous hair!

Here is the link to the hairtyping thread. (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=7804)

From the picture you provided, you look like maybe a 1c or 2a. I can't tell if the very tips of your hair have just a bend or an actual spiral.

The second identifier requires you to look at an individual strand and determine thickness. The linked thread breaks it down more.

The last identifier has to do with the thickness of your ponytail. A measuring tape will come in useful for that part. Once more, I don't remember the exact breakdown, but the linked thread has it.

HTH!

Thank you! That helped a lot.
And thank you for being my first LHC hair compliment :D

After looking at that, I think I'm a 1C...

Wow, I think this is the best type of hair :)). I'm new on the lhc, so I'm not a hairtyping master, but... 1c or 1c/2a? Oooor 1b/2a? :D (some parts look very straight :))

And mine is too short to make this hairtyping thing :((

I vote for 1c. :) Straight with some wavies. Your hair looks so soft and pretty. Welcome to LHC. :flower:
