I disagree. You hair appears to be lovely, thick and healthy and wihtout a doubt type 4 hair. On any day your hair would not look like 3c hair.
There is definately a difference imo. For instance my hair look absolutely nothing like yours and as such would definately respond to hair styles, techniques and products differently.
I honestly feel like people with 4 type hair are the main ones who have a problem with people differentiating hair types because they want to pretend all hair is the same in order to diffuse the fact that their hair type is kinky in texture.
Is there anything wrong with kinky or type 4 hair? Of course not. Do a lot of people believe there is something wrong with it? Unfortunately based on what I've been seeing around these boards, I think so.
I haven't said much about it before but it's honestly pathetic imo. It just reads I hate my black self to me.
I have to disagree with the bolded. My hair looking nothing like yours means nothing because We might have the same porosity and density issues,
I use products by ingredients not hair type. I use products geared for straight, kinky , coarse ,dense, white, black , indian... etc
With product, moisture, and the of health of my hair can look like a 3c and on a bad day this so called 4c
what it all boils down for me is the health of my hair not some type classification that some man come up with who doesnt even know how to style kinky hair other than straightening it or slapping a relaxer on it.
I simply disagree and stand by what I said earlier. I respect the people especially those with type 4s who own their hair with no apology or denial.
That's simply how I feel.
No-one is putting down how you feel at all but quite frankly its not about what my hair appears to look like in my avatar or signature. I'm not responding to go back and forth about what you said. I actually was wondering when someone was going to answer my first question.
What is the difference between 3c and 4a, curl size? And if so what would be the difference between 3c and 3d ?
ETA There well might be this 3d because to be honest the "bible for hair types aka Andre walker" , notice the sarcasm, doesnt include 3c, nor 4c. It came about because people felt they fit neither here nor there>
