Cant tell if im 3b or 3c?

Ok i'm a guy and i'm new on here. I've been wanting to grow an afro for about a year now and I just started growing my hair out. I've never grown my hair longer than an inch so far its been a month since i started growing my hair out all my hair is curly all around my head. I just brushed the top of my head so all the curls are going in one direction so its kind of hard to see them. But on the sides and back they're pretty visible, I come from a biracial hispanic family and i'm the only one that doesn't straighten my hair. Curly hair is the dominant hair type in the family. So here's some pictures sorry for the brightness my computer has flash on lol :) /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ash3%2F560756_234467053349416_243166996_n.jpg" class="Popup I have 2 more /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ash3%2F527367_234467116682743_565517581_n.jpg" class="Popup last one /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ash4%2F246470_234467093349412_1287451333_n.jpg" class="Popup so thats pretty much it sorry for the brightness, my mother also gave me her opinions when I showed her pictures of hair types she said my hair would look like 4a longer, but i'm not sure i've only ever grown it one inch :p what do you guys think?

    I cant tell cause you brushed it lol but it looks like you are in the 2's (wavy). Maybe can you post one without your hair brushed? But welcome! :)

    Because you have definite root curl, I would guess that you will be somewhere in 3 or 4, but til you have enough length to see an actual curl, it will be difficult/impossible to type it. Give it a little more time, but get started caring for it properly, now. Next time you take a pic to try to get our impressions, leave it uncombed and curly, so it will be easier to tell. In the meantime, find out your hair properties (individual hair thickness, porosity, elasticity, and density of your hair). With this information, you can find out which ingredients/products will work best for you, and see what others with your properties are having good/bad results with. Many of us have that info in our signatures.

    Two places with info on properties are right here at the top of the page under "Hair Types" and at Live Curly Live Free - Home which also offers a hair analysis service, in case you find it difficult to judge for yourself (I wimped out and used the analysis).
    Be Happy!


    Experimenting with too many products to name here. All this great info keeps my head spinning. :happy6:
