Hi! I have a TWA right now and with product my hair is very curly, without it is a fuzzy looser (but still very curly) curl.
These are the pics, first one is the top, second and third are the sides, last one is the back.
I want to solidify what I’m assuming to make it easier to nail down what I can use and have probable success and what I shouldn’t use because it may not work for me. I find the descriptions of the curl types a bit confusing, as it doesn’t specify if it means from waste of curl to edge of curl or if it’s from the loop or “hole” from the curl. I have a ton of curls where a sharpie can fit and others where a pencil can fit, like the fat ones from dixon Ticonderoga, others can fit a straw but not a coffee stirrer as there would be a bit of space for 2 or 3 to fit in the curl.
***NOTE: they have product in them, and I feel like I’m Coarse since I can take many products without feeling like my hair would be greasy. I put on 3 products and an oil to make sure it’ll last a while. Also, my hair can get wet fairly easy but takes a while to dry all the way down to the scalp, sometimes taking 24 hours, other times taking 8. I’m still learning my since I never cared for it before in life, and so far it’s fun lol.
It can also, as lucky as I am, take any product, be it protein in it or glycerin in it, doesn’t mind coconut, does act weird to avocados
edit: Yes I am aware that I can have multiple curl textures on one head. And it’s one of the things I love about curly hair!
second edit: after remeasuring the curl diameters (?) a sharpie is too big for the crown area
