What type am I?
I have coarse, dry hair that can go from resembling a messy 2c to a very messy 3b. The bottom layer of my hair is straight. I live in eastern North Carolina where summer humidity is just low enough that we don't actually drown. I gave up on my hair a long time ago because nobody could make any suggestions other than cut it boyishly short which never felt right. I live in a ponytail. I think my hair is low porosity because it certainly isn't shiny but my hair doesn't sink when I drop strands in water. That test seemed to suggest my hair could be used as a flotation device.
