    Default Hairtype me!

    I have never managed to do a real hairtyping photo, but this one is the closest I'm likely to come. It's washed and conditioned, with no 'cones and no brushing or combing. It's not completely dry, however. I can't seem to completely airdry without eventually combing/bunning, because it takes HOURS to dry.

    It also has a smidge of coconut oil in it.



    I don't know if you can tell here, but my canopy is a good bit straighter than my underlayer.



    This one is from about a year and a half ago. It's brushed and siliconed, but gives an idea of how curly my hair can get when shorter:


    Thanks in advance!

    Not any help with the hair typing, but you mentioned that your hair was siliconed in the third picture so does that mean it doesn't have any silicones in the first two? I just want to tell you that I love the curls in the first two

    How pretty! I'm no expert at typing, but I would say you are in the 2 range-- maybe a 2a-b?

    It looks like 2a to me on the canopy and maybe 2b underneath? I'm not an expert on hair typing though.

    I'm leaning closer to 2b. You have really nice wave definition, especially underneath your canopy. Do you have any loose spirals floating around? That is a good signifier for 2c.

    I don't have any spirals anymore. I did have a few at shoulder if I didn't brush them to death, but I think the current length is weighting them out.

    Hi Elbow! Nice to see your pretty face and your GORGEOUS hair! Hello?! These pics are so much nicer than your avatar!

    I'd say 2b/2c, which incidentally is ME

    My first instinct was 2b, so that's what I'm going with!
