Hi, 
I think my hair is of a 4a/b texture but I would like to get a professional opinion just to be sure. Thanks 😀

    Hi @zenet3!  Welcome to CurlTalk; we're happy you've joined us.  Love your cute little ringlets!

    I would guess you're a 4B but to be sure you might want to take the Texture Quiz

    your ringlets are super defined! it looks more like 4c ringlets maybe 4b but i think you should grow out your hair some more to really see how it behaves.

    It looks 4b but I think you will have to see when it grows out more. After it grows out more you could take the texture quiz as stated above by Gretchen.

    Such pretty curls @Tonikitty!  I'd say they're a 3C maybe.

    Your hair looks like a 4A or 4B but you would have to wait for it to grow out a bit because the coils/ringlets get elongated with length and you might end up with a 3c 4a texture with a bit more length. Did you have conditioner in your hair in the picture? Very defined and beautiful, looks healthy!

    My hair is afro type but some spots have spiral curls that stick up like a slinky what kind of hair do i have.It used to reach my eyes, but i cut it off and my hair im pretty sure was unhealthey because i all i did was condition it and pick it out and lastly is picking out your hair bad for trying to get healthy curly hair

    Just for clarification, what's my hair type? I'm certainly on the kinky side since my curl diameter is smaller.

    We can't even guess at your hair type if we can't see your hair.  Please post a good, clear picture so we can see your curls.  Also feel free to start your own thread - you'll get more attention from others that way.  And welcome to our new members!
