    Thank you all for the replies! My hair always show these "patterns" if I let it be, but since I'm trying to be good I usually put it up right when it starts feeling mostly dry (which changes the pattern to however the bun was wrapped). If I am 2a my waves sure are big/very stretched out, I do see them in the photos and in real, but yeah, not like my mothers hair (which I believe would be 2c).

    Tbh I was surprised they showed at all, my hair felt more like a ball of frizz when I let it be down like that (that serum sure helped... maybe I should start using it more).


    At least no one is saying 1c anymore, so I guess I can rule that one out!

    By the way, I think it's perfectly normal to have doubts about the exact classification of the wave pattern and have serious variation of wave texture after different washes with different products and at different humidity levels, etc, especially at different lengths and with different types of haircuts...
    My texture is pretty similar, and I can never be sure about the exact category it fits into... there are just too many variables that seem to easily change it.
    Yeah... different shampoos/conditioners doesn't seem to change the way my hair waves when it is dry again (not that I've noticed, atleast), but ofc it does affect how silky or tangly my hair is (and doing stuff like putting it in a bun right after its dry, like I said in my previous post, changes how my hair looks). CO washing did really change my hair, I think I mentioned this the last time I made a hair typing thread, made it really flat and shiny.

    My hair got more wavy bits under the over-layer (totally forgot what it is called), but atleast the rest of my hair is showing some more consistent movement now

    My hair looks exactly like yours did when I had it at your length. You are leaning closer to 2a than 1c. I bet if you brushed out it would be solid 1c, right?

    I think falling somewhere between two hairtypes is pretty common - 1c/2a especially!

    2a, definitely. I'm more of a 1c/2a in that I have body wave and some waves thrown in. Yours is all waves, I don't see 1c in there.

    If I go over it with a tangle teezer for a long time then yeah, it will look 1c, a poofy such just by combing and so on my hair doesn't change much, it will look a little less nice (more poofy and the waves will look...well...they will still be there but they will look odd, not sure how to explain it). My hair looking worse after I brush/comb it is the main reason I usually avoid brushing my hair.

    Thank you for your reply seems to be more 2a answers than 1c/2a, which I guess means that I might as well go with 2a if I want to. I've been longing for that 2 for so long it now feels like I would be cheating if I took it, haha. I always thought I belonged in the 2s, since way before I joined LHC. I never considered my hair to be straight, so all these 1s (first 1b/1c and then 1c and then 1c/2a) has been so frustrating, like: "I got straight hair? I suppose my hair is not as wavy as other peoples, but straight?". And I suppose that's the reason I kept making these threads. It's a bit silly, isn't it? (yes)
    2a.... Calling my hair what I always wanted to call it would be neat, not sure if I dare to change to it though, hehe (feels like a big step after almost 2 years!).

    I'm saying 2a. You clearly have wavy hair, not sorta-wavy sorta-straight in-between.

    yes, 2a is my answer also. It doesn't read as straight hair at all, so can't be - even partially - in the 1s.

    keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.
