Still confused by my hair type

I'm growing my hair out and it's about at 1 inch so far. I've read up on the hair type system but I'm still unsure as to what my hair type is. I am half black/ half white and my hair gets frizzy very very easily. In my pics my hair is combed and it's a little wet.

Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hmmm... Kind of hard to say only because of the length. As your hair grows out, the curl pattern will be more evident I think. As a guess, I'd say it's probably somewhere in the "3" range. But that all just has to do with the curl patter. What you want to figure right off the bat are your hair properties -- texture, density, porosity, and elasticity. *That* info will help you decide what products and hair care routines will work best for your hair. Making the right choices based on your hair's properties will do a lot more in helping you grow your hair out and stay healthy and attractive.

    There's a lot of info on hair properties on LiveCurlyLiveFree.com. After reading that, you should have a much better idea what properties your hair has and what ingredients in hair products you want to look for and which to avoid.

    HTH. :)
