Here's a pic at 9 months of growth.



I'm thinking that I'm more in the 3b/3c range as well. In the first group of pics I had posted, in the last two I had used some coconut oil, and combing through it caused them to lay down like that (the last pic in the group). Not sure if that changes anything.

Hmm. Well first, I really like your hair I would guess you might be a 3c/4a or around there - maybe with some 3b sprinkled in. Saying that because I'm about a 3b/3c and you have the kind of great root lift that most 3b and 3b/c folks can only dream about achieving (root lift seems more characteristic of 3c/4a and above). 3b and 3b/c tends to droop at the roots so that it falls down more, especially once it's as long as yours in this pic. You can look at my album if you want to see what I'm talking about. Or there are a ton of other pics at this site to peruse.

Bree, you might want to start your own thread and post your pics there. I'm guessing you'll get more responses that way too.

Also, you might consider creating a few new pics that reveal all of your hair at once (in a well-lit setting). It's easier to get an idea for your overall pattern that way

Bree, are you transitioning?
You have to wait til the straight end are cut off to really see what your hair texture is like.

I always thought my hair was mostly 4b with 4a but depending on what I put in my hair it changes slightly. I usually just say I'm in the 4 range but still a little confused.


This is my hair while shampooing


This is after washing shampoo

This is it semi dry

I'm not exactly sure where in the 4 family your hair resides, but here's my feeling about it ... I just love your coils!

Not really sure. Maybe someone else has some idea? Either way, I bet that with a little time and a little growth, you'll have your answer
