Opinion on hair type?

I know it's hard to make a judgement call without actually being able to see/touch, but if y'all have any thoughts I'd appreciate it. It looks great some days, and other days it looks flat & pitiful. I'm really stuck on which texture it is, and I'd like to know so I can figure out how to make it look great all the time. I can't even find a picture of when it had it had really good texture. Additionally, I have fits with it because its wavy/curly on top, and straighter/wavy underneath.

I would say if you haven't already gone CG, you could definitely be 2b, maybe even 2c, but right now, I'd say maybe 2a. Honestly, the more important parts to know about your hair are the texture (fine, medium, or coarse), porosity (low, normal, or high), and elasticity (low, medium, high). Those are, IMO, what makes a bigger difference than hair type.

I'm sorry...what is CG? I'm new to this forum, lol. If it would improve the texture, it definitely sounds like something I need to do.

My hair is deceptively thick. When I go get it cut, they never think it's thick looking at it, and then they get into and they have a cow. Then they try to thin it which makes my hair grow out a million different lengths ugh.

I'm not sure about the porousness of my hair. I'm tending to think pretty decently so...my hair is always dry and takes color & perms extremely well. I've thought about reperming my hair so that it behaves, but I'd reeeeally rather perfect its natural texture if I can.

Now the fine vs. coarse is where my hair gets complicated. Some of the hairs are medium...easily seen on a paper, but more difficult to feel between the fingers. Some of them are coarse..very easily seen against a paper, and wiry feeling between the fingers.

This is why I'm so frustrated, lol. Partly medium/partly coarse. Partly curly wavy/partly straighter wavy. My hair is a hot mess.

It's basically treating your hair very gentle and trying to encourage it's natural wave or curls. I would also suggest reading the links listed in Useful Curly Links and here Start Here!

Those will answer more of your questions, HTH.
