Default Another curlie asking for help with hair type

I know I've been here for a little while but I was hoping you could tell me my hairtype. I'm a little hair type-challenged; I know that I'm a 3 but I don't know what letter. I'm still growing out a relaxer but I'm just curious. I always post on the 3b and 3c boards- I just wonder if I belong there.
Please check out my album and let me know what you think.

Thanks!!

ETA: I guess I should have told you my pw! its lovey

Sorry, I'm not good with types since I don't even know what I am, but just wanted to say that you're pretty either way, straight or curly. Love the curls though

What is the Skip Curl Method? I've never heard of that before.

I'm not good at hair types either so i'm no help. However, what I can tell you is that your hair looks perfect and you're really pretty.

I hate to be so unoriginal as to say yet again I have no clue but I don't.
I don't know what skip curl method is but that is the ringlets I want on MY head!
I can't even tell my own hair type for sure sorry

I would say you're a 3b/c, and I think if it was longer it would be more on the 3c side. You have gorgeous hair! And I have to agree with the other curlies here - you're so pretty, and you have a great smile!

Very pretty...really like the skip curls.

I am a bit confused. You wrote that you stopped relaxing and started CG, but you don't mention if you cut off the relaxed hair.

I only ask because if you are still transitioning, we can't get a true reading of your hair until all of the relaxed hair has been cut off.

If I missread...sorry!

Thank you Ab-star! The skip-curl is a method from Jonathan Torch, (the Curl Keeper creator). It's basically twirling small sections of hair to create ringlets. Here's a link to how to do it.

Here, it says to use Curl Keeper but I just used LA Looks gel and it turned out fine.

Thank you for all the compliments Zoe, medusahair, Nessy, wntrbloom, blueberri, and Gemini; you ladies really know how to make someone's day.

Wntrbloom, yes my hair still has relaxed parts on it. I know this isn't a true reading for my real hair; I just wondered what it is at least for right now. A lot of people ask advice/questions to or about specific curl types and I always want to help but I don't want to be in the wrong territory. My new growth roots are a little tighter than the loose parts in my hair but its hard to pinpoint because I have ringlets all underneath but the canopy seems to be the loosest part.

hmm, to me the loosest parts seem 3a/b and the other parts seem to be 3b or 3b/c. It's hard to tell. Whatever type, it's pretty!

I would say your a 3b/c. Your eyes are so pretty. I LOVE how you do your eyeshadow!

I say 3a/3b I don't see any 3c at all it's more wavy than spirally. The 3c is a pretty tight coil/curl and your hair is not very tightly coiled so I'll go with 3aish/3bish somewhere in there.

Thank you curlicious3b, angiecurls, NaturalRemedy.

I guess my hair really is 3something. Everyone seems to see it in a different way.

Angie curls, I love messing around with makeup!
