I agree with you. Hair can appear to be one or the other at different times & with different products
, & also depending on it's condition
. Here's a photo of mine to add to the confusion. When I did the BC in 2009 my hair didn't look like this. I'd had curly perms for 28 yrs & had a headful of scab hair that would not obey any product. KinkyCurly did not work & I gave Knot Today a bad review here. Carols' Daughter & Qhemet worked so so. After 2 yrs of ayuvedic oils,natural products, extreme pampering, & trimming off scab hair every few months the texture went back to normal & I grew a lot of little curls. My hair looks like this with KinkyCurly & now Knot Today works wonderfully. Soaking wet it can look like this but with less organized spiral curls but it does have a definite curl pattern.It also makes a difference what shampoo/condish I use. When I tried the Mane & Tail shampoos/conditioners everyone raved about, my hair hated them & I wound up with a wild, dry,wiry feeling, tangled up mess that bore little resemblance to the photo & was hard to detangle.Now Qhemet & Carol's Daughter work waaaay better than they did 2 yrs ago now that scab hair is gone. I just say my hair's type 4 & call it a day !! What do you call it?
I think there are so many hair variations you can go mad trying to classify them
& then you might find out something for your "type" doesn't work but one from another "type" does
Hair type 4 "mystery"
Fine,soft hair with little penspring curls of different sizes. Small patch of wavy hair at center of my nape. Did BC in 2009 after 28yrs of curly perms.
