1. How would you describe my hair? What is the texture?How fine or thick is it based on these pictures?

2. In these pictures, my hair is about 3 inches long.....Currently, I want to let it grow all year round. HOW will my hair will look when it grows about 10 or 12 inches or if my hair gets to my neck? How do you think it will look texture wise?

    It's kind of hard to say what the type is at it's current length. In the photos, have you combed or brushed your hair or is this how it looks without doing anything to it?  To me it looks like it might be curlier than it looks in the photos. And it looks quite thick.

    I think I responded to this thread by my response got deleted! Here is a short repeat.

    Your curl pattern looks like 2a-2b to me, but it is kind of hard to tell based on the way your style it. It is also hard to say if you have fine or thick hair based on a photo, and it really is impossible to predict how your hair will grow out. You just have to do it and see.
