Like Tree134Likes

I'm not sure what my hair type is, but it looks like this throughout my hair except for the back of my hair which is way looser than the rest of my hair.

Fine Strands, Normal Porosity, Arm Pit Length, I think 3c/4a
That is not type 4 hair...

Probably easier to type when it's in its dry state.

Also, probably easier to type from looking at a pic that contains all your hair, since many people have several different curl types on one head.
3b/c?

Thanks for the info.

So do you have pics of your entire head, with your hair in its dry state? I think you'd get responses that are more helpful that way
3b/c?

7 weeks into my transition. Not sure if there's a difference between this pic and the one i took on the previous page.

i co-washed and put a leave-in.

You can't accurately type transitioning hair. The hair is weighed down so your curl pattern looks looser than it will actually be. You just have to wait and see

I would say more 3c than 4a because your hair has a curl and not a coil to it

I do have smaller coily type curls in the back at the nape

And on the very top of my head its this weird almost stringy texture that has a slight wave and a spiral at the end lol (not heat damage because I've had plenty haircuts and it always been like that)


And my curls loosen up a little as they grow, and look tighter when I cut it, like on my profile pic a had a fresh Deva Cut. In the pic that I posted it was about a month before my cut so its a little longer

Here a pic of the back of my hair...sorry it upside down I don't know how to fix that

What hair type is this?

First picture has nothing but KCKT and the second picture has KCCC/EcoStyler Gel.

The hair has very little shrinkage and straightens easily. Twists also unravel.

There is no heat damage at all. The hair is like this from root to tip.

A shot of your whole head is more accurate and easier to type than a little section

its kinda not goood pictures but I think its a 4a 3c with some splashes of 4bmix in the front its a looser texture 4a, and the back is I guess 3c idk what do you all think..
