    Default Hair typing help needed

    I've considered myself a 1c.

    Sometimes the face-framing waves form more of a corkscrew pattern rather than an S.

    What would you say? This is my hair, freshly dried from washing, not brushed. Sorry if the pics aren't ideal, it's hard to photograph your own hair. Also, the better condition I get my hair to, the stronger the waves become. It might not be done yet, but that remains to be seen.

    Also, make sure to take note of the pink bra hanging from the clothing rack!

    In general, I think you're spot on with 1C. It's pretty common to have different hair types on different parts of your head, though. I'd actually type myself 1B-2C if the option were available.

    I'd also say 1C seems pretty correct, maybe verging on 1C/2A because some of those waves look like they want to come more alive....

    Thank you, both of you!

    I'll keep considering myself 1c then, until further notice.
    No trimming until July 2019, at least. Trying to reach classic.

    I would say 1c.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)
