what's my curl type?

Hey there,

I am new and I am trying to figure out where my curls fall on the scale.

    I'm no expert but judging from the pics you look like a 2C and 3A combination.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Kosher Curls
    mostly 3b curls
    Low Porosity
    fine, medium, coarse
    medium to high density
    Products: Giovanni direct leave in and olive or argan oil eco styler.

    LONG: 10"+ (armpit to waist length)

    I think you're more like a 3b. 2c hair has a definitive straighter top or underneath layer and I don't think you have a straight layer. That's what I thought I was until recently when my straighter top layer became much more curly. Your curls are pretty "spirally", too. I think you're a 3b.

    I'm definitely a "curly" 2c. Sometimes curly and sometimes just wavy upper layer with a ringlety under layer. My hair has been thick and coarse since birth. Strawberry blonde in color that can and does change depending on the type and amount of light.

    All in all, I'm happy with my hair type but almost for sure think yours is prettier. :)

    It is actually straight on top. Sometimes it can be curly but majority of the time, it's straight.
