It's amazing how we can have the SAME curl type (or whatever) and have COMPLETELY DIFFERENT textures, shrinkage and everything.

Your hair is so long and lovely with looser curls ..my ringlet spirals are so TIGHT. I want them to fall

I've never done a braid out. I'm thinking about flat twists for next week.

The hair typing thing confuses me, my hair curls differently every time. & yea I think texture & porosity matter more than curl type.

Plop (w/t-shirt) hair for 30min than let air dry

YouTube - 3 Hairstyles For Unruly Hair

It sort of looks like a French braid but it's not.
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!



I'm wearing it HUGE! I had a twist out all week. It looks like '80s hair, and I <3 it!
Hair Type
A Bit of 3b
|&|Mostly 3c

Regimen:
Wash and twist hair with oil & Twist hair for bed
No combs or brushes & No "products"

A twist out.

Except I have the front pulled into a "bump" and the back portion that's left out pulled into a messy bun.

I'm not exactly sure what your question means, but do you mean at what point did my hair start falling down instead of up/out? I never BC'd (I transitioned for a long time), so my curls have always fallen down, but they are definitely going down a lot more now as opposed to out, and this is recent. So I would say around shoulder length dry? If that's not what you meant let me know.

Your curly fro is really cute!
