I often have rope curls too very tight rope curls, which like you said, remind of dreadlocks. I don't dislike them, but I prefer big, round curls.

I have mostly 3A, lots of 2C too, and then some 2B and 3B as well. I am fine-haired, medium porosity, VERY high density.

I love getting these. I get most through my underlayers, it seems i get either rope curls or straighter ones...lol. then I get the supercurls on my 2nd day hair, these drive me a little crazy. I feel my hair has no volume and very flat crowne. But it is what it is I have fine low porosity hair for the record. It is nice to know that so many others have these. Was thinking my hair was behaving weridly again. lol

I get these too! I absolutely LOVE mine! They are so different then all other curls I've seen. Mine are everywhere and are about the size of my finger that contain 3-5 smaller strands that twist around each other. They do soften down the length but I always assumed it was because that part of my hair was straitened daily for the course of its existence. My hair has practically quit growing so I'm not cutting that damaged length... but as my hair does grow the ropes are getting longer.

I get these with the side pieces, and my hair is medium coarse. If you read the Botticelli description in the cg book, rope curls mixed with spirals and S waves seems typical. Before I read that I never realized it happened to other people.

If you look at the Deva Curl web site, I think there are also descriptions and pictures.

I get these, too. Mostly on the nape of my neck but very consistently one chunk by my face. I don't mind them except that they are kind of flat sometimes, and the tightness of the curl is unpredictable. It's the only part of my canopy that does it well. I've tried to undo it and it always comes back together. Just one of those things that makes my hair unpredictable!

I am laughing SOOOOO hard right now! I honestly JUST got out of the shower..but before i got it I stared at my hair and said "what are these!!" I stood there and unraveled all my "rope curls" They are driving my CRAZYYYYY

I notice mine when my hair is SUPER moisturized. I feel like my curks are and they just swirl up.

Today i had a TERRIBLE one right on my front side bang. The VERY FIRST curl of my head. Super tight at the top and in the middle it just dropped straight for 3 inches and then curled in the opposite direction. UGH

I would like it if they were all uniform. It makes my hair look wonky I think. Tight tight ropes, loose huge chunky ropes, scrunched, and ringlet sections. OI vey.

Oh...and my coworker kept grabbing them today and going "boing boing" ugh
