It same texture as 4a and 4b, but not the same curl pattern. I know for sure, I lost majority of my hair due to bad relaxer burn back when I was a 5th grader in 2001 and I wore rest of my hair natural for a year straight. Oh yeah, I have baby hair on my side burns and back of my head. (Where the kitchens are at) What is your hair type?

Jumping right in. This is an hour ago. I just unraveled my twists. I BC'd in November of last year to about 1".

And here's what my hair looks like when I wash and go w/o detangling:

I can't figure out how to post pictures inside a thread, but I attached a thumbnail instead. I'm pretty sure that I'm a 4a (now... I used to think that I was 4a with 3c though ), this pic is from a month ago, I've since cut off all my relaxed ends. All you ladies are true inspirations!

I think Shawnette and I have a similar photo :-)

I would submit pics of the hair when wet with no product, but I have to purchase a new camera. Until then, the cell phone will have to suffice....

My hair after henna/indigo (1.5 weeks ago) and amla (this past friday).
I love the shiny black, amla revived most of my curliness yet I was still able to keep the smoothness and shine from the henna and indigo treatment. Oh and after I did the Amla friday, I DT with AOHSR and did a ACV rinse. twisted my hair and curled the twists with flexirods. I don't think the camera could capture how thick my hair is right now! I love it.

I never though my hair was creative enough for that. When I see the other girls fotki, I'm impressed. Also, I'm so new to all this. My hair is just starting to have some length. So the most I've played around w/ is doing the straight look. It has grown nicely. When it gets longer, I'd like to do twists & rodsets, etc. I try the twists every now & then. But, I'm still not happy with how it comes out. I think it would look much nicer once it has more length. But I love my curls.
