What is my hair type 4a 3c etc....?

3b/3c

It's not that serious.
~ Dense, fine, low porosity ~
I would personally like to thank the OP for providing me with my first good chuckle of the day.

@ the OP you look like your in the 4 family and the new hair growing out of your scalp doesn't match the rest of your length so I'm assuming you're growing out a relaxer or heat damage. You should attempt to determine your hair type by examining the new kinkier hair growth and not the ends which have been altered and won't represent how your hair will look once all of your unaltered hair has grown in and the straightish ends have been trimmed off. When I was growing out my heat damaged hair it looked wavy and 3a and as you can see once I trimmed all that hair off my hair is clearly a tightly curled 3c when unaltered.

I never heard anything about 'good hair' and I don't even think I had heard or understood the phrase before I started coming on the internet and being more exposed during my mid-late teens. I suppose different people have very different experiences here. I would have said the 'good hair' thing is not a thing here too. The rest though? Nah!

Just a month ago in the lifts at Tesco a man said to my mum and I 'you both have good hair don't you?!' with a huge grin on his face, thinking he was giving us a compliment. I frowned (ready to ask him what good hair is!) and my mum pinched me and told me to 'take the compliment'.
Maybe communities outside London don't come across this (a. Smaller black community), maybe I get it cos people use it to start conversation about my ethnic origin, maybe it's just a personal experience. I don't know. I just thought the OP was trying to claim she had this 'good' hair that her ancestors left her when in fact, no one cares.

Anywho...
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

My hair just has like a wave in the front and like spiral curls in the back. If it helps when I was younger my hair always had soft curls naturally. im costa rican and my mom has the same hair
