I have been told that I have 3c-4b or a mixture of those hair type, but I want to be sure what my hair type is. I've considered 4c but I compared my hair to someone who has 4c but the texture and curl pattern is way off. I do have an idea of what my hair is but a need a second verdict, for confirmation. I also want to know whether my hair is silky,cotton, or wirey.

Here what I know about my hair

-My hair is the length of my face about 7-9 inches long

-My hair has medium to low porosity

-Hair strands are fine, some is o shaped some is s shaped

-My hair does define when wet or after a wash

P.S. The pictures are of my hair after wash day

    I’m honestly not sure and I’m not gonna be very helpful but I just wanted to say that your hair is beautiful! and also you probably have more than one hair type on your head. I’m not an expert on this because im new at this but it looks like different patterns. and the curls look much looser in the front. hopefully  somebody can give you an actual answer!

    I think you have a mixture of textures I do too, but I go with the texture I have more of which is 4a.

    I would say your hair type looks like a mixture between 4a - 4c..
