Default Hair Type Forum Consolidation

Do you feel the hair type forum should be consolidated and do away with the sub-categories?

I'm cool with having 2,3,and 4, but without the subtypes the way the 2 board is right now.

Yep, consolidate. I think other categories could be consolidated too. We have way too many forums to wade through now.

Yes, there are too many forums. The search function works. We don't need a forum for every tiny detail. Do the work and search.

Yes, consolidate. So, we'll have more concentrated information in one place...

Agreed. Besides, a lot of people have more than one subtype in their hair anyway.

This would be cool. Texture is the most important hair property, IMO.

I wish we had a sticky thread in the general hair forum - "what's my hair type." Like in the 4a forum. You go in, post a pic, get an answer, & be done with it. I totally get curl type is a fun tidbit to know but I'm tired of the 15 new "what's my type???" threads per day.

I totally agree. Texture is the most important thing. Not sure why we have the porosity forums, they get very little action, IMHO.

I rarely, if ever, answer the "what's my type questions." Maybe to say that hair properties are more important and give them a link for that. If people would stop answering, maybe folks would stop asking. As a behaviorist, it's always taught that you don't reward "inappropriate" behavior, LOL!

I also wish people would use the search function. For a while, we'd tell posters that there was a current thread on the subject and give the link. I digress from the topic--sorry.
