my hair type?

PinkCityPinkCity Posts: 5Registered Users
Hey everyone!

I am a little confused with the different hair types. I think I am a combination 3b,3c, and 4a but I am not sure. what do you think?

Is black castro oil good for growth with my hair type? I need my hair to grow and its breaking. :toothy8:

thanks

    Is your hair dry? I ask, because in the picture it looks like it may not have enough moisture. If your hair is dry, that could stunt any growth in such a way that no growth oil can make up for.

    I have to oil/moisture my hair every other day. For some reason my hair still looks dry :( I am using jojoba oil and shea moisture smoothie. I started using blk castro oil on my ends.

    Do you know your hair properties? That is way more important than type. You may also be protein sensitive - do your products contain protein? /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Flivecurlylivefree.com%2Fcurly%2520hair%2520basics.htm" class="Popup
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
