I have pretty solid 4a hair (with some random patches of 2-something thrown in for good measure.....), and my assistant steady wishes she had my hair. She's a gorgeous 3b, but she can't make an afro or get my volume. Occasionally she'll ask me to do a twist out or afro, just so she can play with it . Who can say no to that?!?

I myself LOVE my 3b hair, and wouldn't trade it for the world! However, I have heard of women with kinkier/coily hair wanting looser curls. Admittedly, I haven't experienced looser curlies wanting kinkier/coilier hair though....

I love my hair but I would love it more if I had a strong 3b curl pattern instead of 3a/3b..

I love my pattern when it's "done". I DO wish my hair looked like it does with my activator with just oil and water like some curlies' hair.

I use to want a looser pattern, but I'm content with my itty bitties. I just wish they looked uniformed easier.

Yes. I'm a loose 3b, but would love to be a solid 3c.

As a 2 something, 3a is my dream hair. Wavy hair really is a problem for type A personalities. I want consistency and perfection, which means a lot of manipulating has to be done. I could not agree more with loremipsum. I'm so envious of you 3a's.

Absolutely. I miss the ringlets I was born with so much and wish I'd never fried them into nonexistance. Everyone wants what they don't have, huh? I too am a perfectionist and I'd kill for consistent spirals and now that I've come to accept my waves and wurls, I'm really trying to give up on the green-eyed jealousy I get when I see a beautiful head of bouncy ringlets. I'm well aware that even over years of treating my hair nicely and letting the damage grow out and fade, I may never get that back.

Sorta. I think the looser texture I have suits my face the best, but I do long for a more consistent pattern, and a stronger one. I'd love to be able to scrunch something light in, and go. I do also wish I had thicker hair, and more volume. I think a medium 3a with a strong pattern would make me happier.

I would like to have beautiful consistent and long 3b curls but I truly envy 3c, 4a or even 4b. I would love to have all that awsome volume or be able to wear a fro. You are so lucky!


Corkecelli- Mostly 3b around face and very tight 3b under ears(weird). Nape of neck and back of my head 2b while the rest is mostly big 3a with one or two stray 3b curls on top(sometimes).

I have 2c/2b curls for the most part with 2a in the back. In the front, though, I have very consistent 3a ringlets that I love! I wish that the rest of my hair was just like those 3as. I definitely envy 3a hair!

this... I wish for more density, especially crown and top, wish my curl pattern was consistent all around my head and a stronger pattern which requires less babying to behave.... I have 3b ringlets nearest my face but 3a whorls at nape and 2b on the crown & top.

Nope. Mostly 3b with a tad 3c here and there and I'm perfectly happy. I love and admire other curl types all the time though.

Yes - I would love to have a consistent 3c curl pattern in my hair which presently can't decide if it is 3a or 3b and varies in different areas.

I would like the top layer of my head to curl more and the bottom to curl less.

I'd love to have a consistent 3B pattern with volume and shine -- and no frizz, ever! Might as well dream big!

I'd love to have bouncier tighter curls. I love my hair now but love long shiny 3c hair.

Also any of the 4's. So interesting and textured, just beautiful!

I'd love a consistent 3c as well... I'm 3b/3c with a bit of 3a thrown in for good measure.

I suppose I could say I'm a solid '3'.
