Hello fellow curlies! I'm new to NC, and I'm a little confused with the hair typing system.
The good news is I'm pretty confident I have: Low Porosity, High Density, mostly Medium Width, and Medium Length hair.
I've been growing my hair out for about 1 year and 8 months. My hair is a bit past my shoulders, and I've basically been getting it braided this whole time.
My stylists thought my hair was 3c when I showed her the pictures on the sight. My hair is EXTREMELY thick lol. I don't think I've seen any 3c's with thick hair like mine so I wanted to get some opinions of hair scholars lol.
When my shed hair comes out, it does not look like the 4's in this picture, but more like the 3's.
Okay now pictures of my hair:
1) First pic is a little old now, 3 weeks before 6-1-13 and is my hair blown out straight. I've not really had any trouble retaining length or have any heat damage.
2) Second pic is before I had my hair washed on 6-1-13
3) Final pic is my hair wet, but not damp. It had been towel dried a bit. I've noticed when I wash my hair at home or get my hair wet with sweat, my hair tends to straighten and go down. Then when it starts to dry it shrinks up lol.
I hope this isn't an information overload, I just wanted to give as much information as possible so anyone could help me identify my hair. Thank you so much in advance to anyone who can take the time to help me!
