Curly problem

Hi,
So I have just started my transition for a few months and I have a problem with my curls, at the back of my head my loops are very thin and loops much less than those in the front.
What can I do ?
And I do not know at all the type of my hair ..

Thank you  !

It will be a pleasure to find you there  :)

    love your hair!  i agree, it' is 2b/3a.
    i would try using more leave in in the back.  sometimes curls in different areas of our head need more moisture.

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(

    My hair is still changing a lot ..
    I would like to know if my hair type is still a mix of 2B / 3A it's mostly the hair on the top that is bouncing more and more compared to the first picture on this discusion..

    I love it, but now my hair is getting shorter and shorter....  :#



    if I let my hair grow (I would like to have them long again) my curls will still be as curly as it is now ? or more loose ?

    Most of us have varying hair types on our head. Mine is mostly 3b but the top tends to be more 3a (since my hair is long now and pulls the curl out).  
    I would say your hair is 2b - 3a. It's very shiny and pretty!

    So there is nothing to do for my finer hair behind?
    Thank you !

    i would say 3a.  and it is common to have more than one hair type, ie, i'm 3a, with a few 3b curls and 2c waves.

    There is unfortunately no way to know what will happen to your curl pattern as you grow your hair out; everyone's hair responds differently to length. If your hair is still very curly at a longer length and you want to elongate the curls, you might be able to do that with the right products or different techniques. (Though I don't know what those are, since I'm always trying to make my hair curlier!)
