What is your hairtype? (ATTN: 3a's or partial 3a's)

It sure seems like there are a lot of 3a's on NC.com... or at least partial 3a's!!!!

    I'm 2c with a little bit of 3a, more 3a is showing up now that I have been on CG.
    Trying to find some sanity as I work on my master's in nursing...

    When my hair was longer my hair seemed to be a 3b. Now that my hair is shorter its more of a 3a. I think the weight of my hair pulled the curls tighter. In some ways I miss my long hair. But I'm loving my shorter 'do a little too much to go back now. :)
    3 b/c curls with bangs.

    I think my hair is mostly 3a/b. I do have a few tight 3c ringlets but they are a little bit like my white hairs and kind of get lost in the curly jungle. When my hair was short, my curls were tighter and more strongly 3b. The length now pulls the curl out quite a bit so it usually ends up looking like 3a at the ends but merely wavy or even straight toward the scalp.
    3a/b, fine, lots of it

    I'm a 3A. Straighter when cut short and much curlier the longer it gets. When it is really long (BS length), it looks 3B in pictures.
    3a, BSL, color treated/highlighted, fine strands (but lots of them), high porosity

    I'm a curly-headed runner, triathlete and foodie! Sweat, chlorine, sun... my hair gets tortured by it daily. It somehow always manages to 'bounce' another day!

    I picked 2A/3A because my hair is fine and wavy with a few curls. It used to be 3A/2A if that makes any sense. I had Rusk Anti-Curl done last November 15th - I marked it on my calendar... :oops: Five months later, my hair still isn't as curly as it used to be. I don't mind, it's easier to deal with but it is just odd!
    Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.

    Mine is 3a/2b--mostly 3a with some 2b waves underneath.

    I think I'm 3A, but with 3B tendencies. Very determined to be corkscrewy, but HUGE and not tight like 3B.
    The best revenge is living well. The second best revenge is fire ants.
