ive been posting in the 3c board for a while now but i dont really get this whole typing system anyway i went to look it up and it says it would be the diameter of a pencil? my curls are not that tiny theyre more like a sharpie size they also look like smaller ringlets not really like the "s" shape i guess.. idk so would i be considered 3b also??
Hi Elenaa The typing system is confusing for me too and I'll bet for many curies. I think it's because all our hair patterns are so different.
I think your hair looks like a mixture of 3b & 3c. If it is very healthy, it might curl more and be more like 3c.
Just the other day someone told me I had a very tight curl pattern and I began to think I'm not 3a but very much like you - in between 3b and 3c. Not sure! In the back my hair looks a lot like yours. In the front my hair defies description (sorry - I'm going off the track here).
Anyway, I hope you post more and let us know what products and techniques work well for you. I learn something new practically every day on this board.
2/c-3a Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products and use CJ CCCL as my main styler. Still hoping for 2nd day hair.... Every day is a gift
