    I agree. It looks like it could possibly turn into 4a.

    Probably 4b. Really pretty and thick.

    Looks like you have penspring sized curls.. definitely in the 4-range. Congrats on your chop! 8)

    I'd say 4b. Congrats on your chop!
    Yay for Kinky-Curly Custard!
    mostly 3c with patches of 2b, 3b, and 4a

    I can't see a visible curl pattern in your hair, so I'm going to say 4b. However, since you just freshly chopped, you may still have scab hair or with a bit of length it may look different, so I wouldn't rule out 4a. Either way, your hair looks gorgeous!

    I think it is hard to tell at this point, your hair can change as it gets longer, my cousin is 3c and her her was like this when it was first bc two years ago, we all thought initially she was going to be a 4a like me & some of my sibs but I would wait and see.
