looong time lurker---first post! what type hair do I have?

I love this site! so helpful :-)

I've lurked for a few years and never registered until recently....

and I have finally decided to post!

I also *minutes ago* got a fokti album set up :-)

I'm wondering what type hair I might have (I have read the curly girl book btw)...I can't tell. I think I have various types. I used to have tighter curls than I do now. I've bleached my hair several several times over the past two years. I've had bright red, dark red, blue, green, pink, purple and orange hair (not all at once!) sometimes separately, sometimes in combinations

most of my curls are about half an inch or less, some slightly bigger than that. others are closer to an inch and a few are past that (at least on some days....I think it depends on what I do with my hair or how long I go without washing....)

aaaaaanyway, I bleached the front parts way more than the rest so they are WAY less curly which is disappointing to me. I hate the front of my hair now. because of that, I dyed it brown and am leaving it alone now. probably not for good especially since I have about six tubes of dye left lol but I'm leaving it alone for quite a while :-p

anyway, thanks so much guys! :D

    Can you return/exchange any of those tubes of color? (Like for some nice DTs...;)) Your curls really look gorgeous in their natural color...

    P.S. Yes, they look like 3b.

    On second thought, your hair looks 3b/c in the first couple of photos, but 3b when it's not. So I'd change my opinion to 3b.
  • briccagrlbriccagrl Posts: 540Registered Users
    I'd say 3B. Your curls are absolutely gorgeous!!!

    wow what an explosion of curls! 3b too, and although i type myself 3b you have such differnet curls to me. i do get the type of curls you have but they're not as bunched up and i get such a flat top. i've also used the flaxseed gel and quite liked it but again my curls werent half as springy as yours.

    very gorgeous! welcome to the boards!

    when its not up?

    so what is the difference in photos that changes it? the top of my hair? (ugh, I hate the top of my head lol)

    wow, thank you :D

    I think cut is part of it and how I part my hair .some days it looks flatter and some days it doesn't. if I sleep with wet hair my hair is curly from the root nad it looks funny to me since its normally not like that....but its a cute look. it ends up being a lot shorter than normal too.

    thanks! yeah I kinda think I am mostly 3b with some 3c in it with most of the 3c in the back and espcially towards the ends. also, it varies. some days its strictly 3b lol other days it leans more towards 3c....kinda odd. but ....

    oh, and I just started using that stuff. a few of those photos were taken the day after my first use. I might try the curl n shine next. I've heard good things :-)

    ahhh, I get way more volume than that when I want to. its kinda absurd how big it can get. I think its fun, but I think my boyfriend prefers less.... :(
