Hey,curly buds,
I'm new to the whole curly thing - I didn't know curls needed special products and care and that they have types. I'm kinda confused what's my hair type. Could you help me and my curls out? ^^
My hair is somewhat straight at the roots and gets curly at the ends. It's easy to frizz too. Any suggestions?

    Hi! I'm no expert on hair type, but I'd say your ends are 3a and the rest is kind of like a 2b? What products are you using? I'd definatly recommend a gel and an oil if your hair tends to be frizzy. Also, if you get it layered the roots might get a little curlier. Best of luck!!

    You can take the test online but I would say you're a 3a or 3b

    Going by the pictures and descriptions here I'd say you're definitely 2B (on the top) with 2C (on the bottom) :)
    3B. Med porosity. Med thickness. Med density.
