Hair Type: Unsure

hairlikemeridahairlikemerida Posts: 13Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I don't know how to describe my hair other than Merida's from Brave. It's not red, which is a shame.
But, it's like my hair is different types fused together. Some strands are straight, others are super curly, lots of frizz, and lots of volume.

There's this wall of just straighter pieces on top, and below is all of these curly S-shapes and tight spirals. It's so many different types. And my bangs curl into this one big curl.

Any ideas?

Also, I didn't know whether to smile or not.....so disregard my face.

    You'd need to share a pic of your hair when it's not brushed. There's no way to guess someone's curl type once they've brushed it out. :)

    That was the only picture I had. I'll try to take another one, but I just took a shower, so I have to wait until it dries. That'll be a couple of hours. Thanks, though.

    Not sure on hair type because a lot of us are multiple types (myself included). Looks like 3a with a bit of 3b with maybe some 2 mixed in? Love the length. I'm attempting to get to that length. Looks like you maybe need more moisture for the halo frizz? What do you use product wise?

    Thanks for responding. It's taken me forever to get to this length. And I don't use products, and when I do, nothing happens. My mom bought this Lotus Shield stuff, which is supposed to get rid of frizz really well, but it just made my hair really greasy.
    I've been researching products and I think I'm going to buy EverCurl from L'Oreal.

    I haven't tried the Ever Curl but I have heard it has good reviews. Maybe you could try a good leave in condish? I wish I could do no product but it's really scary looking. Like finger in a light socket scary. Lol! I've been trying to get to your length for about two year now. Probably going to be another two year before I get there :)
