I just want to know my hair type. I've researched, researched and researched, but still couldn't make up my mind. So I decided to get other's views and opinions on what my hair type could be.

My 13 year old daughter has the exact same curl pattern and I have wondered what her was. I think that it's 4a, but I may be wrong.

I agree with the others, looks like you're a 3c/4a combo. Welcome.

Yes, it looks like 3C/4A to me as well. ItThat being said, I have discovered that while hair type is nice to know, porosity and density is a need-to-know for naturals. Discovering my porosity (high) allowed me to change my hair care routine in that I restrict the amount of heat I use, and use protective styles to minimize the amount of brushing/combing I do. It also helped me discover that protein is essential for my hair, and I look for that in hair products. Hair density allowed me to discover which styles look best on me. You may find tons of 3C/4A's out there, but regardless of hair type, they might have different needs. Hope this helped and good luck!

You can find it out by getting one strand of your hair and put some water in a bowl, put your hair in the bowl of water and wait for 5 minutes and if it stay floating its low but if its like touching the bottom of the bowl its high porosity ...
