What is my hairtype?
 
5 Attachment(s)
I've always thought it was around 3A or B, but I'm not sure anymore

Also I'm not sure if I shouldve taken my picture wet or dry.

A few more questions, I have low porosity hair, and Since I'm not so good with hair, I don't know if I have frizzy hair or not, and I don't know how my hair would look if it's healthy. So please help!

To mention looks 3b, as far as those classifications go (which just is not standardized). Is it coarse? Or medium? How does it feel? It doesn't look terribly frizzy to me.

Its coarse, and feels pretty soft/hard so in the middle, Realyy want to fix my hair, Because It's really hard to know if i have split ends or if my hair is just supposed to be like that , its pretty
tough. But I'm ready to fix this jungle of mine.

Well the first thing to do is lose sulfate shampoos and silicones in any product. That alone will make a difference. Have you done any reading on the CG method?

Here is a good quick rundown http://www.manemanblog.com/2012/03/27/the-abbreviated-curly-girlguy-method/

Actually yes I have been trying that for months now, but I realize that I am either looking at the wrong way to make my hair look good, I'm not sure what I should be doing aside from the CG method. And the hot weather and humidity is something that I don't know how to fix.

I've been using giovannis teatree triple treat conditioner for months now, and i just started using bedhead Moistue maniac conditioner because of the heat, and I have no idea what I should be looking for, I don't remember the last time i had healthy hair.

Do you use anything as a leave in? Do you have a gel?

no. I just kinda figured natural would be the best lol
Is that how peoples hair is so shiny?

If I were you I'd message this gal at Sweet Curls Elixirs https://m.facebook.com/sweetcurlselixirs?__user=1014722677 and get some plain FSG to start. FSG works great for pretty much ANY hair to help control frizz and keep in moisture. You could expand from there if you are interested in adding ingredients. Jessicurl Rockin Ringlets is FSG but has mag sulfate in it which doesn't agree with all hair. Technique is as much as anything. Check out this vid http://youtu.be/_BO3A5gueF4

Looks like 3a to me. And it does not look frizzy at all and that is because you might have a low porous hair (?). Use a light leave in and gel after shower, style and then let it airdry.

Looks like 3a/b but not completely sure. Your hair has a lot of body, which is terrific. I agree with Chupie - especially about using a leave-in conditioner. Since you're dealing w/humidity, using a gel after your leave-in is a good idea too.

It definitely doesn't look like 3b, as your curl circumference is larger than a sharpie. You're 3a.
