Wow you have beautiful shiny hair! I would say you are a 3B, but I'm the wrong person to ask since I think most of the people here on this thread look like they are 3A!So what do I know? : )

I have'nt posted a pic yet but I am pretty sure I'm a 3b. I have really ringlet type curls close to my scalp and they get more defined the shorter my hair is. The layers on the bottom half of my head are more wavy then curly. I have a lot of hair but it isn't thick, it's more fine and frizz prone in humid weather. I also have to make sure I don't use heavy products since my hair will tend to droop and way down the curls.

I have used Biolage Creme Curls for a few years now and that seems to be the best product but at times it seems like my hair gets use to it and starts to get greasy when I use the cream on the second day without shampooing.

Anyone have some products they like and use faithfully?

The last time I went to the salon to get my Biolage they were out so the stylist convinced me to try Paul Mitchell's Skinny Serum-it smells delightful and it makes the curls soft, a little bit on the frizzy side but defined curls so I am not completely sold because of the frizz factor and that the curls kind of go all over the place.

Any thoughts?
You ladies have some seriously gorgeous hair!!! ibraidhair: that's my dream hair right there.

I think I'm a 3b, what do you guys think?

Just go with the 'fro
thank you highlyaddictive, that is really nice to hear. my hair was dry last month, so a stylist suggested shampooing once a month & conditioning every day. i've been using terresentials left coast lemon shampoo about every 3 weeks or as needed, & co-washing daily w/ MHC honeynutt conditioner on the scalp & Aubrey HR on the ends.

i started going all-natural thanks to tips from the all-natural forum, & really like MHC products. when it's still soaking wet, i flip it over and comb MHC sweet almond milk through w/ my fingers (although SA is kind of thin, so i'm going to try their honey hair milk next); then i comb through MHC honeylove pomade (w/ fingers), and flip the hair back again.

next i take a tiny bit of MHC type 3 hair cream, rub it between hands my hands like lotion, & run it through the hair to reduce frizz. finally, for the top layer, i have to comb my fingers through a small section of hair, holding it straight up, & then slowly letting it fall into place (using a little product or water as needed.) that step takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes, depending on the hair's mood, lol.

i'm glad the natural products are working ok

Orange, I have to agree - your hair is awesome!!

s.s.blackorchid - love your thick lush curls too. Sorry I can't comment on the hair type thing, I just had to have the experts type me too, LOL.

Okay, nevermind the doofy glasses and weird expression...this is my hair dry after a shower and running around the dorm for a few hours haha

Me and my roommate (both curly girls!) after more running amok in the dorm
well, as a few others here, i am also not quite sure what group my hair belongs to, sometimes it is more tight and like corkskrews, sometime more bouncy ...
