well its kinda hard to judge without seeing where or how the rest of your curls fall. or how dense they r. u definatly have s shaped curls but maybe a pic of the back of youyr head might help determine ur type of curl

You look like you definitly have type 3 hair. It could be some 3a s shaped looser curls along with lots of tight coils? Mine has lots of tight coils right now at just below shoulder legnth almost looks like yours. Alot of curlies say its important to determine weather or not you hair is fine, thin, or course or thick and how pourous it is. Hope I helped some ")

I agree, definitley 3 of some type, but many say its more important to figure out the "properties" of your hair. This is a great website for figuring it out

I'd say you're a 3b or 3c. 3a's have 1" wide curls, 3b's have 1/2" wide curls, 3c's have 1/4" wide curls.

Very pretty. I see members try to tell people all the time that typing transitioning hair isn't very reliable because of the weight of the old hair. Hair can be very different after bc.
