Default looong time lurker---first post! what type hair do I have?

I love this site! so helpful :-)

I've lurked for a few years and never registered until recently....

and I have finally decided to post!

I also *minutes ago* got a fokti album set up :-)

I'm wondering what type hair I might have (I have read the curly girl book btw)...I can't tell. I think I have various types. I used to have tighter curls than I do now. I've bleached my hair several several times over the past two years. I've had bright red, dark red, blue, green, pink, purple and orange hair (not all at once!) sometimes separately, sometimes in combinations

most of my curls are about half an inch or less, some slightly bigger than that. others are closer to an inch and a few are past that (at least on some days....I think it depends on what I do with my hair or how long I go without washing....)

aaaaaanyway, I bleached the front parts way more than the rest so they are WAY less curly which is disappointing to me. I hate the front of my hair now. because of that, I dyed it brown and am leaving it alone now. probably not for good especially since I have about six tubes of dye left lol but I'm leaving it alone for quite a while :-p

anyway, thanks so much guys!

Can you return/exchange any of those tubes of color? (Like for some nice DTs...) Your curls really look gorgeous in their natural color...

P.S. Yes, they look like 3b.

On second thought, your hair looks 3b/c in the first couple of photos, but 3b when it's not. So I'd change my opinion to 3b.

wow what an explosion of curls! 3b too, and although i type myself 3b you have such differnet curls to me. i do get the type of curls you have but they're not as bunched up and i get such a flat top. i've also used the flaxseed gel and quite liked it but again my curls werent half as springy as yours.

very gorgeous! welcome to the boards!

I wish I had your hair! Its so pretty! I see you use the sleek and shine leave in too! Its a miracle in a bottle. Welcome to the boards!

ETA: I've never told you what hair type I think you have! Your hair looks like a Corkscrew 3B with some 3C in it.
