So confused about my hair

I think I am a 3a Botticelli curlie, but it is like my hair does not know what to do! At the nape of my neck, I have ringlets, on the crown I have "S" shaped curls that look like they may want to form start of ringlet at the bottom, and then right above my ears I have spirals.

Nothing uniform at all on my head LOL. How should I classify that?

Thanks!

    Jules, I am confused too. My hair has multiple textures and curl patterns. My curls are much tighter underneath the top layer of my hair so I sometimes like to pin my top layer back to show off how ringlety it really is. :toothy7: Try not to worry about your hair's various curl patterns because reportedly properties are more important in figuring out which products to use and how to style it. Go to livecurlylivefree.com if you haven't already and try to classify your hair there. I think I'm a normie - normal texture, porosity and density- so I'm just operating on the basis of my hair does what it will.
