    I just want to know my hair type. I've researched, researched and researched, but still couldn't make up my mind. So I decided to get other's views and opinions on what my hair type could be.

    My 13 year old daughter has the exact same curl pattern and I have wondered what her was. I think that it's 4a, but I may be wrong.
  • NeirelleNeirelle Posts: 126Registered Users
    3c-4a

    It's 3c/4a combo like my hair

    Thank you for the responses , I'll really appreciate it :)

    I agree with the others, looks like you're a 3c/4a combo. Welcome. :wave:
  • TexturedTeenTexturedTeen Posts: 6Registered Users
    Yes, it looks like 3C/4A to me as well. ItThat being said, I have discovered that while hair type is nice to know, porosity and density is a need-to-know for naturals. Discovering my porosity (high) allowed me to change my hair care routine in that I restrict the amount of heat I use, and use protective styles to minimize the amount of brushing/combing I do. It also helped me discover that protein is essential for my hair, and I look for that in hair products. Hair density allowed me to discover which styles look best on me. You may find tons of 3C/4A's out there, but regardless of hair type, they might have different needs. Hope this helped and good luck!

    But one more question how do you find out my porosity ?
  • NeirelleNeirelle Posts: 126Registered Users
    You can find it out by getting one strand of your hair and put some water in a bowl, put your hair in the bowl of water and wait for 5 minutes and if it stay floating its low but if its like touching the bottom of the bowl its high porosity ...
