    It's a big deal to me going from one type to a less desirable type, I'll see how it gets when longer if it gets more wavy I might decide to go back to short hair if I'm unhappy with how my hair develops

    I've got a fun one for you tonight, ladies (& non-ladies).

    My hair looks pretty straight most of the time - most days, Lucy McLucyFace and I could be hair twins, as my texture and colour look very much like her photos. I usually comb my hair while wet and BBB each day, and along with coney conditioners this results in a very 1b/1c effect. However, I've suspected for a while that there may actually be some secret waviness in there that's developed with age and hair length, so I did a hairtyping wash with minimal manipulation.

    I'm amazed at the difference lighting makes!

    98% dry:




    100% dry:





    More diffuse lighting:



    A sneaky 2D double helix!


    I don't have any expectations about hair type and am enjoying the process of curiosity and change. But after seeing these photos I know I definitely need a better camera. I hope the quality is not too poor. I also didn't realise how ill-fitting the yellow dress was from the back - anyone have any tips on taking the shoulders in?

    What do you think?

    (My photos are all friends-only for privacy. If you want to be my friend please send me a message. ^_^ MusicalSpoons, happy to email you photos if you're interested as I know you don't use the friends system.)

    Probably, but what else to do, but drive me nuts, right?
    And you got an answer out of me, anyway, so... I think that's good.

    barnet_fair, I think that might be 1c/2a, but going more towards 2a. I know, some 1c/2a's are probably looser in texture than others. But I'm a little unsure. I might even call this 2a! Someone put my mind at ease, please.

    I would say 2a for barnet_fair. Looks a lot like my texture, to be fair.

    Don't despair, Bat. Even if you end up in the 2s, you can more than likely get away with brushing and just gain a bit of volume from it. My hair goes almost stick straight from brushing. I just don't do it because it makes my hair tangle more, especially in the damaged area.

    barnet_fair, I think 2a, because of the visible clumps and for those strand strongly in the 2s. To me, the roots looks more in the 1s because of the weight, and having coarse hair I think could be possible...
    Next Goal: TBL. Final Goal: CL+.
