What Kind Of Hair Does Kelis Have ???

NC.com puts her in the 4 category..
http://www.naturallycurly.com/pages/...paign=HAIRTYPE

What about her hair would make it an actual 4 ? Cause I'm not seeing it...

I generally think she's a kinky type 3...circa "Milkshake" her hair started looking magically looser/silkier...but back in the day, it looks like a different text...in some pics, she looks like she has some of each (type 3 and 4) in terms of diameter.




In this one, she looks more like a 4


Not a great pic, but she looks like she may be a mix here.


In any event, I think there are a lot of ppl on NC who's hair resembles the last pic and ID as 4A.
They all look like 3c, just manipulated differently(some pics have product, it looks like some don't).

With the green hair, the curls look smaller than pencil size to me. No?

NC has always had interesting photos on that curl type page--just full of wigs and altered hair. This is why it's hard for me to take curl size too seriously.
We made up 3c, so according to their original page she would have been under type 4. Otherwise, I agree that her hair looks predominantly 3c. But hell only Kelis knows what's up there. Dye alters some people curl patterns and the celebs often have pieces and whatnot.
What I can say for sure is that I'm not loving her most recent hair colors and cuts.

spiced with a few spiral coils and non-curling waves
mostly medium and fine with a sprinkle of coarse strands

The OP's pic is a weave. I saw it on www.lugohair.com yesterday when looking for hair to get those Traci Thoms long twists and they use the pics of the actual celebrities who use their hair. That very same picture of Kelis is on their website.

The other pics look to be Kelis' hair and I think she is a 3c.
I thought the same thing. I think she's mostly 3c.

And if they want to show a 4a celeb with defined curls, Tracie Thoms fits the bill perfectly to me:

Maybe they should see if they can use her...

Thanks ladies. I was like WTH ? Since when is Kelis a type 4 ? I don't know on that page NC messed up if you ask me. That whole email thing was wrong.

I don't believe Kelis hair was a weave though. I think that Lugo website is just showing examples of the look one can achieve with their products. I didn't see anything that said that these celebs ACTUALLY had their hair in.. I just believe she (Kelis) has 3c hair and she just used to style her natural hair with different methods is all.
@Marah I actually called them and asked about Traci Thom hair because I wanted to know if it was the exact same thing and they stated that all the celebs on their site actually use that hair. I know that Khamit Kinks purchases hair from them and Tracie Thoms used to visit Khamit Kinks (she may still go I don't know I just read it yesterday).
not saying her isn't like that but in the first pic she does incorporate some "tracks" in that style....lol

Kelis on the other hand is known to have that sort of hair naturally.. the only point I was really making is that Kelis doesn't have type 4 hair. The front is definitely hers in that first pic.. now that dark black stuff may be fake.. I would NOT be surprised.

I get you @Marah. Whatever her hair type, its FLY as h*ll!
I happened to be at Hair Rules when she got her hair done by Dickey. It looked like a 3c when wet, however it dried very wavy. That might have been the way he styled it though.

My vote is for 3c.

What do hair typing, Santa, the bogey man, and the great pumpkin all have in common? My utter and complete disbelief in them of course.

in my opinion, shes a classic 3c.
