What hair type does...my dad have?

lol...Is "old people's hair" its own type? He's 80. I'm thinking he's a 3c...But is it too hard to tell because it's short and its texture has probably changed since he was a boy?

    looks like a 2 to me because of the loose wave
    LOIS (OS); cottony, TYPE 4 hair, fine/med strands; no cones bcz my hair hates them; last relaxer '98; now low porosity:?, ignores most natural hair rules; BC #8

    faves: suave, v05 shampoo, conditioner (my own), raw shea butter, castor oil, peanut oil, aloe juice

    my guess is 3c. and i say that his hair looks a lot like my dad's. after i did my BC, when i brushed out my hair (which is exactly what my dad does everyday) we were hair twins and i'm a 3c.

    I never answered Stephanie's question. No, lol, dad isn't CG. I think he brushes his hair with a boar bristle brush and washes it with Irish Spring soap.

    The only difference in old people's hair is often it's thinner then when they were younger and gray hair grows in courser then people's original texture. Your dad looks like a 3a/b to me. His hair isn't all that curly but it's kind of course I don't know if that's the gray or his natural texture.

    ^^^ I think his texture above is a result of being gray and brushing out his hair. He has zero desire for definition. lol...
