Default Naked Hair (with a side of hair typing)

I was going through my flickr earlier today when I stumbled across a picture I had taken of myself last summer with my camera phone. It was right before bedtime so I washed, conditioned, and air-dried with no leave-in or styler. Surprisingly, my curls were so full and bouncy, not too mention amazingly soft. I'm sure that the minute I would've stepped out into the elements, the lack of gel would have been disastrous...but it looked great while indoors!

Please excuse the terribly unflattering angle.

Anyone else want to share their naked hair pictures and stories? Don't be shy! Also, I mentioned in a previous post that, having been on the NC boards for a few years now, I've noticed people's hair type opinions have shifted a bit. I've been going by 3b/3c for years but I'm curious as to what you guys think.

You have beautiful hair! It looks like 3b and 3c is just a bout right. You may even have a little 3a up in ther, but I think you're right with the 3b/3c.

As for the naked hair, I've always been to afraid to take a pic without any product, so sorry I have none to post (i'm pretty sure even if I did have one, I would be lookin' so CRAZY i wouldnt even want it leaving my private computer for the whole world to see lol!)

Unless i've just deep conditioned..my naked hair frizzes and poofs in a matter of minutes. It's a scary sight ...i sorta love it but not enough to 'capture the moment'.

You sort of look like your having an ecstatic religious experience

Here's a recent close to naked (CJ Honeybutta scrunched on some ends)

Well I was wearing my "halo" (of curls that is..)

Your hair is growing so long.. I love how fluffy it is! I am looking forward to your full grey transition too..

I'm loving everyone's naked hair!

Yes at you but Bekka's halo also qualifies.

OMG your hair looks so gorgeous! It looks like you have highlights. I know you're growing out your grey hair. Beautiful!

I don't have any pictures of myself with "neked" hair But maybe this week I'll take one. I'm always afraid that it'll look big and poofy, but not big and poofy in a good way LOL

Your hair is adorable!

And you don't have to be "3c" to post here. Actually I wonder about that.. a lot of 3c's post in 4a, but not the other way around.

Actually nvm.. this is turning into a random thought. I'll continue there..

I've been wearing my hair naked all week. No pics, though, so I guess I should go take one...
