Default Does your edges determine your hair type?

im going out my relaxer to become natural and my hair around my edges i have cut..they seem to appear like smooth 3c looking...did anyone do this and find out if the rest of the hair is 3c or 4a?

i know crazy question...just wondering?

It's typical to have several different hair types on one head.

Many people, including me, have multiple hair types and hair properties on our heads. That's why my sig says "2c/3a".

I don't think so. Some people have edges that are less textured than the majority of their hair while others have edges that are more textured. I'm the latter. It's even hard to get my edges to lay down with gel. I would go by the majority of your hair for hair typing.

No not just edges cuz they could be damaged from heat etc. Look at all of your hair to determine

No. My sister has very straight, pretty edges/hairline but her hair is 4b. I have curly/wavy edges as a 3c/ loose 4a.

and, if this were true, most/all 1-2 type hair people would have very fine/soft hairline. but, most/many do not.

You never know what you'll have until you cut it off the relaxed ends

I don't think so, at least not in every case. My edges and nape are my softest, loosest texture. It's different from the rest of my hair.
