Hey everyone,

Today I am one month post BC and my hair holds more moisture now, than when I first cut my hair. I'm a little curious as to what my hair type is. Can anyone help me? Thanks. ATTENTION!!! The Official Type 4 "What's My Hair Type?" Thread!-imageuploadedbycurltalk1354308107.336928.jpg

Not so sure on the elasticity, but I don't think I have a very good moisture/protein balance and my hair is ubber dry, so I'm going to go with low... of course I could be very wrong.

I was thinking between 4a/4b. Sorry I couldn't find clearer pics. The first one is without product. The one in the middle is a twist out. The other ones are WNGs

Thanks

So for some strange reason, mid strand, lo and behold is my curl pattern .. i think. I have gotten relaxers and I have this patch of hair that has my natural curl there. So I don't know if that part didn't get processed, or processed enough, but whatever the case, there it is. My curls go pretty straight when wet, and of course, goes back to normal when dry. In my roots, the curl feels a little looser but slightly tighter in other areas of my hair. This is my hair after washing ...










I don't know if it's enough to type!

Thanks!

Thanks!

cant tell on relaxed hair. straight hair is heavier than curly, so straight ends weigh curls down making them appear looser. try again later on 100% virgin hair.

Idk why, but today I'm curious what type Quinn (my hair) is. It does its own thing. I'd say 4a/3c. Not sure though. No heat damage, btw...
