Hi Guys I'm brand new to this community and I found myself here looking to find out what kind/type of curly hair I have. So far I can't place an exact finger on my curl type except that I'm Anywhere from 2A or 2B I'm not 100% sure? My story basically is that when I was little and younger (I'm 22) my hair was super curly probably a 3A and thick with lots of curls, I've noticed that as I've grown my hair has gotten thinner (yes I pulled up my hair a lot because it was untamable and I'm a dancer) but I've stopped pulling my hair up as much now and it has gotten a little better. However it's still thinner than I'm used to, I did have highlights done a few times and dyed my hair once (never had bleach involved and the salon I would go to uses all natural products dyes and shampoos included). Recently my curls haven't been as prominent as they once were and they've gotten looser over time (I also barely ever curl or iron my hair, I only ever diffuse it occasionally after I shower and before I go to bed); I also know to steer clear of any pretty much "drugstore" shampoo because of harmful sulfates and other things so I stay on the natural end but nothing is helping my curls it seems. I'm on the fence about cutting my hair to a long bob or lob as its called in hopes of springing that curl back to life? Usually right after I wash my hair or the morning after I wash it the curls are a little more prominent but when it comes down to three days out or even one or two they fall hard almost flat; sometimes they aren't even very curly right after I wash my hair. I have attached a couple pictures to help get what I mean, the fourth fifth and sixth is usually how my hair turns out right after a wash but not always and then the others are about three days out. Thanks so much!!
