Hey Im fairly new to going natural and I have been growing my hair for about 3-3 1/2 months Its still kind of short which is probably the reason why I cant tell but I was wondering if anyone could give me like an opinion I think its 3c/4a?also my hair is not really curling on the top I'm not sure if its do to what I'm using or if its because its a looser curl pattern.

    I would say that you have 3c/4a with a little of 4b hair on a curly girl.hair chart. There is a curly guy's hair chart as well: http://www.manlycurls.com/2011/06/curly-hair-men-types-guide/

    My boyfriend's hair does the same that yours does in terms of not curling in sections and it may be due to previous hair cuts and the fact that the top of your head is the least manipulated and exposed. Have u tried any gels?

    No not yet but I've been hearing good things about eco styler gel....do you kno if it would make a difference or do I have to just wait to let it grow before it starts to curl.....

    Most guys and even women have to wait and let their hair grow out before their true curl pattern becomes evident. I would say to try a small container of Eco Styler gel (usually about $1.49 at a local beauty supply) on your hair and see if it works, otherwise maybe a curl enhancing pudding or smoothie like Shea Moisture's. You might also want to research about texture and porosity. Those are more helpful characteristics than curl type.
