Hey everyone!!

I've been looking around this site from time to time over the last few months, and wow, what a great site! I love it!

So I have curly hair that I...like many...struggled with all my life. Usually I kept it blow-dried and pulled in a bun ...yeah, not exactly the best way to make the most of my curls. Eventually, at the age of 17, I started to like it once I figure out how to style it, and wore it curly for the next couple of years. Then...my lovely mother coaxed me into letting her cut my hair (to "trim" it as she said)...yeah right, it was SO short, like to-my-ears-short! And i was very upset...so I resorted to "straightening" it again. Then i discovered the CHI straightener, hallelujah! After that I ironed my hair every single day for 2 years, yup, 2 years, every day. Needless to say, my hair started to break off in big chunks, and my curls disappeared. When i would wash my hair it really felt like straw.

I was genuinely scared that all my hair will fall off, so i stopped straightening and wore it in a pony tail for the next 2 years, and FINALLY it all grew back now! I didn't even cut my hair, I guess it all just broke off in pieces ! Scary huh...it's about an inch past my shoulders now when curly! I just feel sad when i think of how long it could've been now if I didn't kill it.

I'll post a couple of pictures that I just took of my hair, and I'd really appreciate it if you ladies helped me out to determine what type my curls are! I'm very curious.

The first picure is with some gel in my hair, and the other ones are with no products, washed 3 days ago.

Btw, my hair in the back of my head is much curlier than the front...unfortunately i couldn't manage a picture like that .

Oh man, thank you if you made it this far in my post!

I would say your curl pattern is a 3b. It looks a lot like mine if I finger-comb through my curls instead of scrunching. You have very pretty spirals!
3b spirals, fine texture, normal porosity, dense
