Ok, I think I figured it out! But, I still need confirmation!

Hello everyone,Well my hair has grown out a bit more (has been growing extremely fast, surprisingly) and I think that my hair type may be a cross between 3C and 4A, am I right? Or is it still too soon to fully tell? I have also been using argan oil products to help keep it moisturized, is that the right way to go? I appreciate all of your help!

It may still be too early to tell due to texture. I would've been more likely to guess that your hair was a 4c, but that may just be the texture making it seem that way at this length. Which of these textures sounds most like your hair?Thready- hair has a low sheen, with high shine while the hair is being held taught with low frizz. Wets easily but dries quickly.Wiry – has a sparkly sheen with low shine and low frizz. Water bounces or beads up on the hair strand. Hair never seems to get fully wet.Cottony – has a low sheen, a high shine if hair is held taut and has high frizz. Absorbs water quickly but does not get thoroughly wet very fast.Spongy – high sheen, with low shine with a compacted looking frizz. Absorbs water before it gets thoroughly wet.Silky – low sheen and very high shine with a lot or low frizz. Easily wets in water.It may help to shingle your hair with gel and let it dry. Since gel does not create curls, only defines the already existing pattern, it may help to decipher what your curls look like defined.
