Interesting question .. for me it's about length. Curls have to wrap around a bunch of times - 2.5 times I think - to be considered a ringlet. So, to me, ringlets are longer than curls.

To me a ringlet is tighter. Curls are bigger and bouncier.

I would say that a ringlet is a form of a curl. I don’t think a ringlet necessarily has to be a tight curl. I do think a ringlet is more like a "perfect" spiral and can range in sizes.

A ringlet doesn't have to be a double-helix like that one though. I agree with xfoxelil1xx, a ringlet is basically a spiral.

The weirdest thing with my hair is that if I cut it to chin length the curls will tighten to 3B and even some 3C curls, but stretch out enormously when my hair gets long.

I've heard the Boticelli term a lot here and have never been clear on what it means exactly. I guess everyone has their own interpretation of it, just like all of the curl types.

For me, botticelli curls are a mix of loose curls and tight waves, like you see in Botticelli paintings like this one:

Botticelli=3a, right? I think I have a lot of that. I do get some pipe curls sometimes, and when I get them they stubbornly refuse to stay separated no matter how often I pull them apart.
If a ringlet is a spiral curl, then what is a non ringlet curl? a tight wave that curls on the end?
No cones since 08/25/09. Occasional low poo.
Fine, normal to low porosity (still not sure which), ii, 3a/3b curls

I tend to think of these guys as ringlets, although some don't consider them to be ringlets unless they are the tubular type.

Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.

Ringlet is a type of curl. LIke what was said before...all ringlets are curls but not all curls are ringlets.
Ringlets are spiraly curls.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.
