    the second photo in my signature is when I tried the CGM, maybe this would affect how my hair looks too.
    Late reply but looks to be 1b/1c
    I love the color and texture of your hair

    And is that a velour robe? It looks comfy

    I've always called my hair 2a; do you all agree?
    Hard for me to tell. Would say most likely 2b
    Lovely waves you have

    lapis_lazuli, your hair is awesome
    Other than awesome I'd say 2b, without context I would assume that your waves are braid waves, which is pretty much "textbook 2b".
    They seem to be on the looser side, so maybe 2a/2b also fits.

    Now happily maintaining tailbone length. I'm not done growing though... Just waiting for my ends to thicken

    May I please jump back in here for a moment and ask for some direction? Is there a specific thread for caring for/routine for 2a/b hair?

    Thanks

    No 2b, for sure, at least that is my opinion; those are like "braid waves" waves, so that means 2b, for sure. And if you have a tendency for some pieces to "ringlet", say at the nape or front, then consider 2b/c.

    Still thought there was another one. Can't find it... Maybe someone else will jump in here that remembers it!

    Oh interesting, thank you all!! I did wonder if I was wavier than I thought. I'm used to dealing with my looser finger-combed texture and near-straight hair that comes from being bunned, but I see my underlying texture is something quite a bit different.
    This is the year of realizing all my hair classifications have been wrong

    This gives me hope if my hair ends up being 2a it will still look ok super long
