What's my hair type?

Runna4LifeRunna4Life Posts: 112Registered Users
I BC'd at 7 weeks post a texturizer and have 2.5 inches now. What do you all think my hair type is or is it too early too tell?

    I don't know anything about hair types so I cannot help you there, but I am so envious of your hair growth rate: 2.5 inches in 7 weeks!

    I am just going to go cry in my coffee while I wait for my hair to slowly (:cry:) get to bun length.

    I would guess 4a/4b....Are your pictures with or without product?

    I would say 4b for now, but that could change after a few months. About a year after I went natural I noticed my hair start to clump on tiny 4a spirals. You may want to let it grow a bit more and you might have more than one texture by the look of it.
    Whoop whoop! :hello1:

    I think you need a little more length to be able to tell your hair type. If I had to guess now, I would say 4a, but... :dontknow:

    It looks like you still have some relaxed pieces in the back, but even that may be too hard to tell yet.

    Looks 4b, but it could change since you just BC'd...

    Man, your hair's hard to figure out. I think it is because it needs to grow out more. My guess right now is 4a. But the good news is curl size is really not important to learning the best products to use in your hair!

    you look 4a...and it just looks like your hair is still getting used to moisture.. it will probably be a lil more defined after a while of that...

    I'm curious about this pineapple oil too. I did a search but only found flavored oils for cooking.

    Hi! Could you tell me the full ingredients list of this oil please? It sounds yummy! :thumbleft:
    My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse. :happy6:

    I love how the oil sounds but an ingredient list would be great. Natural ingredients can still be mineral oil and it drys my hair out.

    Sent from the mytouch 3g slide. Spell check does not compute.
    3c/4aish, high porosity, fine strands,medium density cottony curls.

    Pineapple oil great for curly/frizzy hair apparently! I Googled and it was my second result. :hmph:

    Also, their suggested oil blend with guava oil sounds awesome!

    it does cut down on frizz a lot when I use it :)
    but still I'm dealing with something: my hair near the root is silky, smooth, and looks like 3c/4a, but the ends are NOT defined at all and look like 4a/4b. How can I fix this?

    Is it possible to post the ingredients list from your bottle?
