Hello, I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what kind of hair I have. I don't now if I am a 2b-2c or 3a. Please, help me.
This is how my hair looks if I don't style it:

Have you tried reading about the hair types at www.naturallycurly.com. I am not sure what type you have either, so I hope that helps...😊

I can't open the full size from my phone, but from the thumbnail I would say 2c, possibly 2b/2c mix. But remember that properties (texture, porosity, etc) are much more important than curl pattern for finding the right products.

Yeah I know... It is difficult! My hair looks 4a but feels like a 4b so I am a bit frustrated at times! Your hair looks nice and soft though😊 (I know, I'm not much help&#128521

I think you are correct on the mix 2b/2c. I just checked. I really do love your curls!!!

2c, with probable 3a potential.

No problem- I started as a 2c/3a mix and progressed to a more solid 3a (with a bit of 3b in higher dew points). So I totally understand that weird in between spot.

Looks like a definite 3A to me once you are taking great care of it. Very similar to my hair!
APL 3A
Medium porosity, medium density, medium thickness
Current routine: Daily co-washing with Giovanni conditioner (whatever is on sale), styling with Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier, and 1-2x per week cleansing with a Chagrin Valley shampoo bar followed by an ACV rinse
