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.

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

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." --- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
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.
I agree with you. My temples are 4b and the rest is a mixture of 3c and 4a... My crown is aother story... Puffball of i dont know what... Smh

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.
