Finally a pic! My canopy as you see is very limp and my underside is a bit crazierrrr. I have no idea what hair type I am?

    I am really bad at curl typing. I am not even entirely sure I have my own curl type right! LOL When I first came here I was all obsessed over curl typing, but eventually I learned curl type doesn't really matter. Properties are far more important in understanding your hair!
    Whatever type it is, it is pretty! Very shiny and full of volume! I'm completely jealous of all the volume.

    If I had to guess my hair properties... Id say I have medium texture, and since my hair is very processed Id say high porosity.When my hair is wet/damp its VERY elastic too. Feels like string youd make a stretchy bracelet out of.
    and thank you! I think the volume is fun! But Id definitely like alot more curls on my canopy.

    Maybe a mix of 2a and 2b :)

    I vote 2a on top and 2b on the bottom. But I'm a terrible curl typer. (a blog to help new wavies, go to the how do I get started page)

    Definitely 2a on top, 2 b/c on bottom, is what I'd say.
