Can anyone tell me my hair type?

I don't really know. I was thinking 3c or 4a

    Hi @Elisaboyd, I'm new to identifying types, but I agree with you that 3c/4a looks right. I have learned that it's possible to have more than one hair type on a head, also. I'd go with what seems predominant in your curls, and to me, that looks like 3c hair. Taking the quiz on this site helped me to see that my 2c/3a hair is predominantly 3a, so I use that as my main measuring stick, since I tend to lean toward more curly rather than less. Hope that helps! You have some lovely, shiny curls!!
