Hmm I see! 3c/4a is where I fall under, which is confusing as hell. I guess it's the type of thing where you just roll with it. I agree with you about not placing value on it. I seen and heard people break it down by shape of curls, comparing it in size, and the same thing you said silkiness, fine, wiry, etc.Which makes it even more confusing. I personally don't see the difference in 3c/4a.
