    Pretty hair!  I would say maybe a 2b/2c.  It doesn't really matter much.  Curl pattern can change from day to day, depending on the weather, the products you use, how its cut, etc.  What's more important are things like porosity, strand thickness and density.
    Thankyou! Thats true, my hair is really Changing right now (curl patern) because before it was looser and im planning to cut my hair into layers because my hair is thick and heavy (it’s getting way too long lol) and it pulls down the curls. I have low porosity, medium thickness and high density. What Products are you currently using?

    @CurlyJK I would say your curls look like they could be type 4, yes! Going by https://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types/coily then I'd wager you're a 4a. With products you might be able to achieve some tight ringlets!

    @Talitha96 I would say your curls are a 2c/3a! Your routine seems to be good, judging by the second photo. My curls are a 2b/2c and I use the Desert Essence coconut conditioner, Lush's R&B hair moisturiser and sometimes a Kinky-Curly Curling Custard (gel). I have yet to upload photos, they're all on my phone and I'm typing on the PC. And like @Guide 65  said, figuring yout your hair density, porosity and how thick the individual hairs are is indeed important.

    Hello, 

    I've been growing my hair out for around 7 months and counting. 

    I started to notice texture within my hair. I believe I'm a 2b 2c. Not really sure. I've been doing better by getting bether shampoo and conditioner from Maui to take care of it the right way.
     Any suggestions, comments, or recommendations are welcome.

    Hello, 
    What do you think my curl type is?  I was told that I have 3 different textures. 
    Thank you,

    Welcome @ikiarich!  Looks like an average of 3C.  I think most of us have multiple curl types.

    Welcome @Hcarey!  Very pretty hair - I'd say it's 2a, maybe with potential for 2b.

  • jhurleeejhurleee Posts: 1Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Neophyte
    would someone tell me if you think my hair is 2B or 2C? I was thinking c?
  • Guide 65Guide 65 Posts: 1,984Registered Users, Moderators Curl Virtuoso
    @Stilllearning4 - I'd say your hair is 3C or maybe 4A.

    @jhurleee - we'd need to see a picture of your hair to tell.

    And welcome to both of you!  Feel free to start your threads if you have more questions.

    what about my hair type? (dont mind skin lol)
  • Guide 65Guide 65 Posts: 1,984Registered Users, Moderators Curl Virtuoso
    @AGLET148, welcome!  It's somewhere in the 4 range - 4b or 4c I think.  It's hard to tell when you don't style to have defined curls, so that's my best guess.
