I can't decide! I know my properties are fine, low porosity, and high density. But curl type... idk

Are your ends flaming red or am I seeing things? Looks really cool. I can't decide from this picture either. Maybe both?

I love purple hair. It's hard to keep though, isn't it? Same for red. Those colors just wash out so quickly. Once you cut it off I bet with the weight taken off of it you could be a definite 3A though since right now you look somewhere between. It doesn't look grey, however. It looks like little flames.

I think ur right about cutting it off cuz my shorter hair in front is definitely 3a. It's the longer hair in the back that's 2c. I've always wanted long hair, but that means choosing length over curl To see if it helps I'm gonna cut off the bleached parts when I save up some money cuz I can't find anything less than $50

Looks very similar to my hair, which is a mix of the two.

I consider myself 2C, because most of my head is deep, thick whirls, with some spiral curls thrown in. I also have a straighter underlayer, a common 2C trait.

In the summer, however, my hair is much more spiraly, springy & 3A, so dew points/humidity are factors.

I hang out on both the 2 & 3A forums to pick up tips. Lots of overlap in methods, techniques, etc.

Hair properties are, as everyone says, more important than "type", since "type" can be flexible. My hair is typical 2C (coarse, thick, frizz prone), but highly porous, which makes finding a moisture/protein balance tricky.

Good luck. You have lovely hair!

My hair is very fine and has very little porosity, which is why I go crazy looking for products because EVERYTHING weighs it down even my parents expect me to come home every day with a different product lol and thank u for the compliment
My hair frizzes in humidity too or at least it used to. It's been good now when it rains. It even gets curlier. I attribute that to using the right products. Skorpio, I would also say my hair is curlier in front, even at the root for some reason. My hair has a 3b underlayer instead of a straight one but I'm not sure where that places me on the spectrum. I'm not easy to weigh down because I'm also coarse and highly porous so I think I share attributes from all 3 hairtypes 2C-3B but I average them out since it looks mostly 3A and if I style with something with a harder hold (the sorts of things that unfortunately dry my hair out) my curls tighten up very nicely into spirals.

Lady Plymdale - how are you doing in your quest for a protein/moisture balance? I just asked a question about this myself because it seems like my hair properties are at odds with one another.

Everyone keeps talking about consolidating the hair type threads so they are just 2, 3, and 4 - but I also think we need a separate "whirly" thread for those of us stuck between two worlds! Lol!

lol agreed. I finally had a pretty good hair day today and I cut off the dyed ends so maybe it'll curl more easily now
