Default Need help! :O

I need help determining my hair type (whether it's 3a, 3b, etc.). I'm also in search of a hair twin, wherever you may be

Here are some pictures:

From the pics it looks like you are 3a. Maybe even 2c.

Now, I just want to let you know that if you are using this info to get an idea of what products to use, hair type will not be able to help you. You will actually need to learn what your hair porosity and texture is. Proper care of curly hair is based on these two hair characteristics rather than hair type.

I hope you find a hair twin, but a true twin will actually have your same hair type, texture and porosity also.

How would I determine my porosity, texture, and things like that?
