what hair type am i? and keeping hair from going limp?

Hey everyone! I just started the CG method about 2 months ago, and I had a few questions...

1) what hair type do i have? 2? 3? curltalk.jpg


the top is always really straight & flat, so i keep pushing my hair off to one side to create an illusion of curliness lol ...

also, if my curls look better in humid places/weather, does it mean i'm lacking moisture? how can i keep my hair from going limp when it's cold out?
thanks!!!

    To me it looks like your hair is definitely in the 2 range (the curls look way too loose to be 3). I'm not sure what looks better for you as far as your curls (they look beautiful in the pic btw :) ), but I believe in general if your hair is just soaking up tons of moisture from the air on humid days, that's one indication that you want to give it a good moisturizing treatment. And I also believe that if you use a good curl activator product as part of your styling process, your curls will do all right in cold weater.

    Hope one of the expert curlies jumps in with their input if I'm missing the mark on any of this. :) Wishing you continued good luck with your curls!

    i am not sure what your hair type is but many on here dont find it as important as knowing your hair properties like density, texture, porosity and elasticiy (you can learn this from Live Curly Live Free site)...as for moisture in winted i definetly recommend a deep condtioning treatment every week and also a good leave in like kinky curly knoit today good luck
    Lo-poo:organix Shea butter shampoo
    Co-wash: suave coconut
    Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
    Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in
    Serum-like product: still need one
    Gel:LA looks sport gel/ HESMU,GFPC
    Oils: olive, coconut

    I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein
