Hi, I finally decided to post in this thread. I've been natural for awhile, but I damaged my hair with heat and had to start all over. It's been a struggle with the hair in terms of keeping it moisturised. I don't know what my hair type is, or even porosity level. I'm trying to learn all of this to help with keeping my hair more healthy. As I have a huge problem with moisture and frizz (especially at my edges) which has led to breakage and cutting off a lot of my hair again in November, second BC I guess. I'm hoping to get it right this time.

Anyway these are some pics of my hair. I believe it's a 4a with maybe some 3c, but I wanted to make sure. Any pointers on it would be great.

I have some pics:

















As you can see my edge are prone to dryness and being frizzy (also seems to be a totally different type to the rest of the hair). And this makes it grow slower than the rest of my hair.

I don't feel like posting pics, I have one to the left but I've never been sure about hair typing... my curls are basically the circumference of a regular pen/pencil, sometimes the thicker kind of pens that have a finger grip but they are... 'elongated'? not coily, loosely curly, like, a stretched phone cord that won't spring back? I do have a small patch behind each ear that do coil more properly, which I refer to as the danger zones because I can't just run my fingers through them.

Deelishas- You're looking like a gorgeous 3c. That color is AMAZING!

Candimamii- It would really help if you post pics.

Can anyone tell me my hairtype? I know it's some type 4, that's for sure. It gets lots of shrinkage. It also only has a visible curl pattern when wet, or if I apply gel to it. In the pic, it is just wet with no product. Thanks a lot.

i do think that you have type 4 hair also, but im not that sure which subtype it is. your hair just looks dry. try a deep condish and maybe youll start to see a visible curl pattern. although to me, it looks somewhat crimpy so maybe a 4c or b

Default question

hey everyone, ive started using the cg method. its ok so far, but im facing a dilemma....i know that you arent supposed to use a brush, but, my curls arent as defined as they can be when i use the cg method. i used a denman d3 brush to detangle my hair. and define too. i like that when i use the cg method that detangling takes less than 45 mins as opposed to the tightly curly method with the denman. so.... which should i use? please reply
