Pics of Short 3c Hair?
 
Hi, I'm currently transitioning with a curly mohawk type hairstyle (haha). My hair is natural on the sides and back, but still very short, so I'm trying to figure out my curl pattern. It seems like there there coffee stirrer/pencil sized curls, so 3c/4a combo? I was wondering if any of you guys have pics of short 3c hair (TWA - curly fro length); usually I see pics of shoulder length hair or longer, so i was wondering what it looks like shorter. Also, about how long does it take curly hair to grow out? I assume longer for seeing length because of the curls...

Any help would be great, thanks!

Really short (and dyed golden brown)

Less short, Feb. 2008:

Everyone's hair grows at a different rate, but an average is about .5 inches per month.

Thanks Bekka, you have great hair! When my hair was shaved (long story, haha) it looked pretty similar to yours. I have a bunch of pics on my blog -- questfortheperfectcurl.wordpress.com.

I'm not sure if this is too short :/ I would recommend getting your hair trimmed by a professional to shape it though. I wish that I did because my hair is uneven.

My signature pic is about 1 month after I big chopped. 3C/4A

EllyEllyOxenFree 12-04-2009 11:03 AM

Pretty! How long did you let it grow out before you bc'ed?

I also wanted to ask you guys...have any of you used regular dye on your hair (not henna)? When I was relaxing I used Feria sometimes...and kind of want to dye again, but am not sure if it will damage my hair. I don't think it really did before...actually, after I dyed my hair shaft was usually smoother and my hair felt fluffier.

guidance?

i'm looking for some opinions on my curl type. i'm thinking it's 3c/4a? but i'm not quite sure. i rarely can find a picture close-up of the curls and mine are not very long because i've been transitioning from relaxed hair for about 5 months now so my natural hair is only 3-4 1/2 inches long when stretched. i don't see a coil yet just an s shape but that may change when my relaxed hair gets cut off, i think?

any opinions?
thanks all for this great community! i was going to drive myself batty with researching different techniques for curly hair. i've slowed down now haha.

the picture came out small if you click it i think it'll show a closer view. ^___^

Looks like 3c to me...although you'll be able to tell better with the relaxed hair cut off. I think my hair is 3c/4a on the sides/back, but I still have relaxed hair up top so I have no idea what it's doing...

i have my hair colored all the time. in the summer its often bleached and colored. i have never had any damage from color but i think it has everything to do with the fact that i have it professionally done, and i do frequent protein treatments as well as moisturizing dt's.

thank you! =D

I can't wait 'til it's long enough for me to cut the relaxed hair! I'm waiting until after winter so that I don't freeze to death. It's already hit below 10 here! (which is late for this area)

i'm a 3c/4a (i think), color treated. at this point no matter how i get my hair layered it shrinks up to what you see in the pictures. i prefer my hair short because when i get length i lose my volume.

gg862 01-04-2010 02:48 PM

yes, it does look to be 3C.

JustSimplyTish 01-15-2010 05:00 PM

The ladies on here told me I was 3C...So I think I am...Not sure...
But here is a picture (if I post it right) of my short freshly today chopped hair 1/15...I had colored it lighter and it was extremely damaged and hay dry so I had to do do the BC#2 within two months of the last one ... Oh what fun...

I can't really tell but it looks like a 3c/3b combo to me! I got tired of trying to figure out my curl pattern because I was told by the Curls expert that I'm a 3c, but I also have some smaller coils on the sides that are bigger than the 4a description (coffee stirrer), but smaller than a straw.

JustSimplyTish 01-15-2010 05:14 PM

My hair looks almost identical to that in the back too...so I thought I was 4A...I think I am a mixture of so many it's hard to tell....Your hair is so pretty
