Hi curlies!

I'm sure many of you have had difficulties with trying to fit your properties and routine/products in that tiny little space in your signature :P

The original hair typing system by Fia, which is used all over the internet, consists of pattern, texture, and thickness. F = fine, M = medium, C = coarse, i = thin, ii = medium and iii is thick. So I would be 3a M iii.

It leaves out porosity, and elasticity, though! So I thought, perhaps WE could think of codes/shortcuts for those? Could be convenient and consistent, and it would be easier to add into our signature :P .

My suggestion: 1P = low porosity, 2P = medium porosity, 3P = high porosity. - = low elasticity, -- = normal elasticity, --- = high elasticity. So I would be: 3a M 2P --- iii.

Just a suggestion. Was wondering if you people would like the idea of adding porosity and elasticity to the hair typing system. Oh and if you have other suggestions for typing the porosity and elasticity, then please post your idea

Edit: We're going with Lauraimes' suggestion!

F = Fine
M = Medium
C = Coarse

L = Low
M= Normal
H = High

P = Porosity
E = Elasticity
D = Density

So I would be:
F - LP - ME - HD

Aqua_Lily would be:
M - MP - HE - HD

Dusalocks would be:
C - HP - ME - HD
