New to site! Am I a 3a or 3b?

Hey guys! I rarely wear my hair curly. I almost always flat iron it...but, I'm thinking about trying the CG method, and seeing how it goes. Conveniently enough, I'm wearing my hair curly I just took some pics to upload. Could y'all help me determine the type of my hair? It's pretty short, so I'm almost positive it'll change as it grows. I know the curls are a little ringlets...when it's longer. :icon_smile: Thanks!!!

    You look like a 3a, but who knows? sometimes when your hair gets longer, it curls tighter at the ends.

    so you may be both!

    You're ABSOLUTELY not a 3.

    Agreed with curlcraze, you're definitely in the 2 range, not 3.

    Yes, I think you are a wavy.

    3b is strong little curls like the size of a marker, not loose 'uns.

    Big loose curls are waves; tighter strong waves with some curls are 2c.

    Look in the Wavy thread and see some of the hair in there. Wavy hair can be BEAUTIFUL.
