It's hard to tell your texture without touching it since texture measures the diameter of the hair strand. You could be fine, medium, or coarse. So I think you are really asking what hair type you have (as in what size curls). If you have tight spirals..you aren't 4c. As far as I know 4c has no curl pattern.

Tight spirals is 4a..the size of a pen spring..yes that little spring inside of a ink pen. Undefined hair with hardly any curl pattern is getting into the 4b and 4c range.

If you can check out a book called "The Science of Black Hair" by Audrey Davis-Sivasothy. It's an excellent book that details hair care for natural, relaxed, and or colored hair. It's extremely helpful. Also go to this website for good info about curly hair care... www.livecurlylivefree.com . Where you can learn how to determine your texture, hair porosity, and info about what products will work well with your particular hair texture and porosity.

Congrats on your BC and welcome to Naturally Curly!!!!

I was wondering what my hair type is as well. I think I have a mixture but I do have defined curls all over my hair.
