Help with what hair type I am.

Hello everyone! I am brand new and this is actually my first post. I have been trying to find out for the last few weeks what type I am. When I got a Devacut a couple weeks ago I was told that I am a 3a but that just seems to curly for me.

I have found out that I am either low or medium porosity, dense, and my hair hates protein (found that out the hard way with a protein treatment). Any help would be awesome!

3a is probably about right. Usually 3a hair needs a certain amount of length to really see ringlets. And you already have a pretty good idea of your properties, so I won't go into the whole properties are more important than curl pattern bit. BTW, you have beautiful hair!

Thank you guys! I have been trying to figure this out for a long time.
Dream hair. This is the hair that I can't stop staring at on the train and such!


But more technically speaking, yes, I would agree with 3a

Er, I am not seeing 3A. The OP looks less curly to me than either Corrina's or dsotomayor. Though maybe it is just finer and that is throwing me off.
High Density, High Porosity, Medium Texture, 3B with some kink

looks like 2C/3A mix to me...wavy and curly at the same time.
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
