Red face 3b short curls

Thank you so much Notty and Th1! You made me feel really good!
I actually just went and got it cut again today! I had her take off about another inch (which as you know in curly terms is about 2 inches). I'll post pics soon. I've got to take a little time to figure out how to work/style it now. I just had got the hang of it right before todays cut. Like I said, I've always had very long hair but just wanted to go very very short and drastic! I guess that's what happens when your brain is fried from kids and life! HA! Anyways, it's so much easier and it feels so much better...like it feels "fresh". Living in Florida, it's always nice to feel "fresh".

my hair is fine and this is the longest it's ever been! There are some pics of when I first started CG in 2004. Definitely a 3B here - I can't figure out how to post pics but the link is below.

I think I'm a 3b/c or possibly a 3a/b. I've been CG for about 3 years. I still haven't mastered my frizz but my hair looks better than it did before. Or at least I thought it did. But after seeing all of your pics I think I've got some work to do on my hair. All of your hair is soooooo beautiful!!!

I'm not sure if I'm a 3B, but it always seems to be the best match. probably a 3A/B combo, if I think about it. what do you all think?

tarahhhh, the last picture (I'm not going to quote it ) looks a lot like my hair when it's longer. The texture isn't quite the same but the curl pattern is remarkably similar. I consider myself a 3A with some 3B tendencies.

Wow, so much gorgeous hair in one place! I am practically drooling over the beauty of everyone's curls. I wish I could control my frizz as well as all of you! Hopefully I will after I get to exploring this awesome site.

I think I'm 3b? I have very thick, coarse hair...I'm not really sure about the type of hair I have hahah...it takes about 3 hours to straighten it...and it's still poofy after it's straightened.

MissTara, you have my hair almost to a "T"! My hair used to be past my butt before I cut it like it is now. It also did the same thing when I would try to straighten it in the past.
