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.


3b/c fine corkscrews and spirals. Naked hair above.


Wash: Elucence Moisture Balancing Shampoo
Condish: Shescentit Avocado/Honey Rinse
Moisture DT: Silk Dreams Vanilla Silk, Crece Pelo
Protein DT: Shescentit Okra Hair Repair Reconstructor
Leave-Ins: Shescentit Coco Creme, Darcy's Botanicals Sweet Cocoa Bean, Aubrey Organics Primrose Spray
Stylers: Aubrey Organics B-5, Shea Moisture Curly Souffle


Subject to change!
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!)

I cant fight my curls
I cant control my curls
I really just let them roll free
What else can i do?

~I have curly curly 3c hair w/ some 4a up in little corners!
~I'm have a love affair with the Ojon Line and faithfully use Garnier Fructis Spray Gel.
~I love all my kinks, coils, and curls even when I wanna rip them out!
~Trying to gorw out to BSL, any tips? Drop a mesage!
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'.
This is a picture from May 2008, naked hair, 100% dry, and naked face.

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

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...
Nappy is not an 'N' word.
