What is my hair type?
I've been told 3C, 4A or a mix between them. Can someone help me understand?
Is that you in your profile pic? If so, you're probably a 4a. My advice is not to be too concerned with what exactly you are. Saying you're 3c-4a is just fine. Hair typing is just a guide to help you understand what products to use in your hair. The rules apply to all curl types. Be gentle, moisturize your hair, and steer clear of damaging practices like flat irons and perms.
