Do smaller curls = curlier hair?

Or is it the bigger the curls, the curlier? It seems like people think when hair has bigger curls it's curlier than when they're smaller...if that makes any sense...?
People are jerks. My "D"H thinks hair only classifies as curly if it's the larger end of 3c or looser. Then again, this is from an older mixed fella.

Dang J, no opinion of ya own?!! LoL!

I think curly hair is curly hair. Tighter curls are curlies because... It's curlier. Yeah.

I think tighter (smaller?) curls would be curlier if you are measuring curliness by the frequency of the coils or "crests" per strand... similar to they way you measure the frequency of waves (ocean, radio, micro, etc)?

I don't really get the point, though.

I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
Do you mean curl size as in clumping, or curl type? I took the question to mean clumping, so in general I think the bigger each individual curl is, the less curly it would be, because it has more bulk pulling it down. When there is less clumping, there is not as much weight on the curl, which makes sense to me that it would be curlier and spring up more. Is this what you were asking about?
curl type: 2c/3a
porosity: low
hair strand width: medium
density: thick
elasticity: low-normal
Shoulder length


Ready to get back on the CG bandwagon!
@dovecurl, yeah that was pretty much what I was asking. I know it sounded confusing. And there really is no point to this question other than clarification, lol.

Yes I definitely think of smaller/tighter curls as curlier, and bigger curls as wavier.

And yes, it really doesn't matter.
