Okay I've been natural almost all of my life except for a brief two year period when I was a preteen, and my mom always did my hair for me. Now, I'm 17 and having trouble learning to take care of my own hair. I figured a good start would be learn what my exact hair type is, all I do know is that I have type 3 hair and have no true idea of how to deal with it. Please help me!

Thank you in advance! :wav:


    Hi! I just recently turned 18, and have been natural for almost 3 years. But it definitely looks like your 3b hair type. But I would search on google and YouTube and find some other curlies who match your curls.

    I would say 3B. What you really want to know are your properties (porosity, density etc.) as that will help you choose the best products and routine for your (very gorgeous!) curls.
    3B. Med porosity. Med thickness. Med density.

    You are definitely a 3b/3c! But mostly 3b! Good luck! ;)
