View Full Version : Type my hair......please?

I always thought I was 2c/3a, or is it kind of 3b-ish? Confused, looking for opinions.

Thanks! Going away for a few days, but I'll check responses when I get back!

I would vote for 3a/3b, IMO you are not wavy at all, but definately a gorgeous curly! :D

This will be interesting. I just wanted to say that your hair is looking beautiful and it looks really strong and thick!

I'd say 3a/3b as well, gorgeous curls! :)

I think you are either 3b or 3a/3b, I am not sure. I am used to seeing much wider/bigger curls classified as 3a (like more of the size of a magic marker). In addition 3a hair is usually straighter at the top. I know I've never said this before but I love your tight and springy ringlets. Your hair has thickened up so much too from the first pictures I saw! While you are thinking of reclassifying your hair type, are you sure you aren't a ii in thickness now as well?

Your hair is beautiful and 3b IMO. 3a usually doesn't curl into spirals until it gets long, and your hair seems to have lots of "s" patterns throughout the entire length. The under side of my hair tends to the 3a type. It is quite straight until it reaches my shoulders, and then it suddenly starts to form ringlets once it grows a little longer. If your hair hair wave/curl even at shorter lengths, you're probably 3b instead of 3a.

My hair is just past my shoulders and I can't wait until it's as long as yours! Good luck!

I can see where you'd get 2c/3a from, because near the top it seems wavy before going into ringlets. My hair used to do the same exact thing, especially when I used to pile it with product to make it as 'straight' as possible. I doubt you're doing the same thing, but yeah. xD

I'd say you're a 3a/3b because of the top, but it's really closer to being 3b...Yeah, you know what, I'd say 3b. xD

I personally think you are a 3b.

July 20th, 2008, 10:24 AM
I say 3a/3b. I thought 3a's are more likely to have straight hair for a few inches and then spiral, but your curls are tighter than what 3a's usually are.

I would personally call this 3b, definitely.
I class my hair as 2c/3a (maybe mistakenly?!) and yours curls much more tightly and uniformly than mine!

p.s. and your curls are really gorgeous, btw. :)

I'm not very good at hair typing but I just wanted to tell you that your curls are so beautiful!

July 20th, 2008, 10:37 AM
I'd say 3a/3b too.

Mine is 2c/3a because the curls don't really start until somewhere between my shoulders and ears, above that it's just waves.

You look like you've got curls starting from much higher so definitely something in the 3 category and I think they're a little bit tighter than a 3a.

My vote: 3b

July 20th, 2008, 01:43 PM
Your hair does the same thing that mine does- it kind of lays down in waves for the first several inches and then proceeds to curl when it gets away from the skull. I'd say 3b.

Thank you all for your nice comments and compliments. Changing my profile to 3a/b ii.

I think 3a/3b seems right.
