I have mixed curly hair with loose waves and tight coils. How do I lengthen the 3c to match the 3b?
I don't know if my hair is 3c or not. I think it is a range from 3b to 4a. I have 3b around my edges and 3c/4a in the middle.
Multiple hairtypes are common, and you generally can't change them. You can try stretching the coily parts with heavier products, such as butters or creams which you smooth onto small sections. As for the looser parts, lighten up on the products and make sure to scrunch them in, as opposed to smoothing. It won't work miracles, but test it out to see if it helps. Much like each curly is different, sometimes the curls on our own head respond better to different things.
