Congrats on your BC. Try giving your new ends and growth some TLC before trying to type it. It's really early to try to type your hair, but it looks like a 4a.

I agree with Surburban....give yourself a bit more time, but you appear to be a 4a. I remember when I joined the site, and was a 3c. And with more length(and healthier hair), I get MORE shrinkage and I'm more of a 4a now.

Thanks ladies! I'm not sure if I really fall into any of the types, I really wanted to know which I was closest to. I have a lot of springy curls, some big and some really small. My nape is the curliest.

I think the ladies have given you som egood information on which category you fall into. It seems almost like u didn't get the information that u were hoping for and u seem disappointed? I dunno i might be reading too much into it.....

Looks like you still have a few relaxed ends left, but from what I can see, it looks mostly 4a.

Congrats on your BC!

Its likely you have more than one texture on your head, but your dominate texture looks to be a 4a, which behaves in many ways like 3c.

I agree that you may need to let your hair grow a little bit more before you can determine your hair type.

Yeah, I feel like I have all kinds of different hair on my head. Right in the middle is this thick annoying patch that has lots of thick tight curls. Then the front seems a little straighter than the rest.

Welcome Curlykinkyfrizzy!! It looks 4a to me...but I'm no expert in hair typing...I actually don't even like the whole typing thing Like the other ladies said, only time will tell My hair is a mix of 3c and 4a...mostly 4a.

Anyway, you have great hair!
