    Default confused !

    I always thought of myself as having 1b hair. I do see some movement sometimes but since I keep my hair bunned wet most of the time I thought it was because of that.
    Now I'm at home with back problems = no real updo's. After washing my hair I fingercombed it and left it to dry. Awaiting the moment I can post photo's I asked DB to take some pictures. And then came the shock more movement then I thought !
    So I was thinking it was the way the photo was made, so I attempted some more pic's ... with the same result !
    Now I'm thinking I might be 1c or even 2a

    As soon as I can show pic's I will, but did anybody else had this kind of surprise while growing their hair ?
    I think it is pretty cool

    Well its not 1a for sure, I do see the off curl but its hard to type you as you have layers and these may be causing psudocurls (hey ive invented a new term!!) but I wouldnt be at all surprised if you ended up when longer as a 1b/c.

    You have grown a lot in such a short time, well done!

    That looks like it's about 1c or 2a. If you can give us a pic that's airdried without touching it or adding any product, we'll be able to give you a better estimate.

    I also think it looks like a 1c or 2a depending on if you get more movement by not touching it at all.

    ok will try not touching it at all next wash
    It feels funny thinking you have 1a/b hair and then it changes on you LOL
    That said when I was 12 I started getting real wiry course and curly hair but only on the crown area of my head and then about a year later it disappeared ... real crazy that

    I totally understand! Before I learned about hair typing, it never occurred to me that there is a spectrum of waviness/curliness that everyone's hair falls upon. Silly me! Then I realized that while I always considered my hair to be "straight," I actually have quite a bit of wave, but I can mostly comb/brush it out as it dries. I agree with 1c give or take. The "pseudocurls" from the layers are very pretty!

    I certainly think hair can change over the years. I especially think that my ends might be different due to the few years of moderate straightening, but I won't know until that all grows off!
