I have been getting those a LOT lately, too! They are weird! Mine are EXACTLY like that (maybe a little curlier), except they are almost like two curls wrapping around each other to form one ringlet. It's kinda hard to describe, but it is kinda like the up-close picture of Corkicelli curls in the new CG book. They just wrap around each other and form these "tubes." Weird.
Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.
