Smile Hello~

I'm from a biracial family. My mother is Cuban/Jamaican while my father is Jamaican/Scottish. Thus I have an interesting mix of hair. I've been "natural" all of my life, however my mother started to straighten my hair when I was 9 because I complained about it (This is what I was told haha). My hair has constantly been straightened until 2010(ish). From then on I've been trying to wear my hair curly as much as I can because I found out that my hair was slowly falling out. I've lost about 4 inches from my hair and now I'm trying to regain it back. I do actually enjoy my hair now. It's frizzy, but it's mine and there's not much I can do about it.

I'm having a really hard time figuring out what type of hair I have. I believe it's a mix of 3C - 4A(Or maybe 4B too). The front of my hair has very VERY little curl pattern at all. It's actually quite straight. The roots of my hair is usually bushy even when I put products in it. The middle of my hair strands are curly in S waves (Or curls.. please forgive my terminologies). And my ends tend to be on the straighter side. In a day or so if my hair does not get water on it at all it becomes very straight as if I had blowdried it.

Maybe someone could help me out with identifying my hair type? It would be greatly appreciated.

This is my texture after air-drying with no product (Most of these were taken in Jamaica so humid air may have made them a bit puffier than usual)





My hair a bit damp (Do you see my straight ends? T_T)


Wet hair (My normal curl pattern)

I think I read it's because the front of your hair is more exposed to the elements than the back--so it gets less moisture and stay straighter. But that never made much sense to me because the back/middle of my hair is not as curly as the front. I think your hair looks pretty damn good without product though. About the hair loss: by the contents of my vacuum I was losing a ton of hair the past six months. My hair is very thick though so it's not like I was worried. I thought it was normal. I have more hair so I figured it was natural for me lose more than the average person. But since I started finger detangling in the shower and switching to natural products I find I'm losing maybe 10-20 hairs a day. it's kind of spooky because i know I'm supposed to be losing 100, right?
That happens to me too! The middle and back of my hair is a bit straighter than the rest. I don't finger detangle but maybe I should! I have hair all over my house.. my mother constantly complains about the amount she and I sweep up each week.

Thank you for your information though I'm sure I'll conquer my hair one day!

I was kind of dissapointed by their last song! Visually it was brilliant, but musically... I didn't really like it.

Dancing Queen was great though

No, I don't know any song by Miss A. Do you have any recommendations? ^^

Yep! That's how I feel at the moment. It's okay live but eh, I'm not too happy with it.

For miss A, Bad girl good girl, Goodbye Baby, and I don't need a man. They're really good :3
