It's hard to tell, but it looks to be 4b

Hey guys, I'm confused about my hair type. It's SUUUUper coily and the coils are uniform around most of my head (at my hair's healthiest state), with looser coils in the front of my head. My coils are very tight, and have the circumference of the stick of a candy sucker. If you've ever seen the little springy coil that it inside of a ballpoint click-pen, my strands resemble that! Teeny tiny. The strands themselves are fine, and clump pretty well on their own, but don't look defined (except for the ends) from afar.

Single-strand (w/single-strand knot included )


Stretched


Separated & defined


Wash n Go


I have a hard time finding people with hair texture similar to mine, and I get super excited when I do =) so please let me know if you think you're strands are similar to mine!
^^ 4a

This is when it is wet can anyone help me determine my hair type?
Hello all!

I would like to figure out what my hair type is- the pictures that you see were taken after I washed my hair and put in my leave in conditioner. My hair dries and looks the same way as in the photos, except there is about 2-3 inches of shrinkage.

I would like to figure out my hair type so I can learn how to make my hair more moisturized. I have gone through so many products trying to get soft, touchable hair. My hair is dry, coarse, and STIFF! I would like soft, moisturized hair with movement. I don't blow dry my hair or flat iron it. I co-wash about 2 times a week and use sulfate free shampoos when I do a full wash. I put in a leave in that contains shea butter, coconut oil, etc. Sometimes I put oil on top of that. I don't know what else to do.

Can you please help me????? Thank you in advance!

Can someone have a go at my hair type?These days I label myself as 4B/4C..or at least tightly coily hair.What do you think?

In the pics I have texture comparisons from today, and the last one is my hair when I first did my BC. I transtioned for 22 months, and am about 3 months natural. All pics are product free
