Hi everyone,  I have been natural for about 7 months and I am having difficulty determining my hair type. This picture is after a shampoo with no product. Grateful for your feedback.

    So pretty and shiny!  I'm not great at typing, but I'd guess somewhere between a 3C and a 4A.  Whatever it is, it's beautiful!

    It's really hard to tell from this picture.  Do you normally use styling products?  If so, then show us a picture with your hair looking its best.  Even if you don't, still show us a couple more pictures so we can get a better idea of it.

    Your hair looks 4A. As it grows, it may or may not change?

    SL - APL - BSL - MBL - WL - TBL

    My hair is armpit length when silk pressed (so close to BSL).
    Natural state: awkward stage; shoulder length (front is above chin length and back is almost shoulder length).
    Goal: MBL
