I THINK I'm 3A but I"m Not Sure?

EllisElizabethEllisElizabeth Posts: 2Registered Users
Hello! I'm new to the forum, but I've been looking through the Curly Community in general for a while. I THINK that my hair is 3A, but I would really appreciate some confirmation from other people who know more than I do. Would you guys mind taking a look? Please ignore the top layer of extremely frizzy hair (hopefully I can get it cut differently to reduce that); everything underneath that top layer is much curlier.

    It's actually tough for me to tell. The bottom back of your hair looks curlier, perhaps a 3Am but unsure. The rest is wavy rather than curly. But if you're new to CG your curl pattern has yet to emerge and will get tighter over time.

    I think the bottom curls may be a 2C the top is wavy. It could possibly get curlier with more moisture.

    Looks a LOT like my hair when it was longer, especially when I was new to embracing my curls (after a while my hair got more volume & less frizz). I'm 2C/3A.

    2C/3A, short hair (crew cut/undercut), low porosity, high density, medium/coarse.
