Confused about what my type is...is it possible for a type to change in a lifetime? Here are images at different times--my routine hasn't really changed (but obviously the length has). What do you think? Am I making this too hard?

    Hi, swampdiamonds! It's hard to tell curl type from a picture. There are so many things to take into account. These links were really helpful to me when I was struggling to figure things out:
    Curly Hair Tips, Styles & Products - NaturallyCurly
    3B, fine, normal to low porosity
    Modified CG since June 2010
    HGs: FSG, anything with glycerin, Tresemme Naturals conditioner, Curls Like Us cloths, satin pillowcases.

    Curl type is relatively unimportant for anything but haircuts and styles because it's transient. I never used products until I started lurking on nc.com. Once I learned to use product and good technique, my hair went from winter wavy/summer 3a to looking like my signature picture every day.

    It's mostly about the hair properties. mhen76 gave you some good links to help you determine yours.
