    It's a little hard to tell from the photos, but it kind of looks like a mix to me of 3B & 3C.  If you have any curls that are about the width of a pencil, those would be the 3C curls.  Either way, they are very beautiful!

    @rabar is that better?
  • rabarrabar Posts: 60Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Dabbler
    Yes; my question:  are the curls about the size of your fingers?  If they're closer to the size of your fingers (not the smallest finger), they are probably more likely 3B.

    Are they all about the same size?  The curls on top and in the back look a little bigger than the ones framing your face.  The ones on top and in back look like 3B to me.  If they are a little smaller around your face, you may have a mix.

    My hair has much tighter curls underneath the top layers...how do your curls look to you when you lift up the top layer?

    @rabar the curls near my ears and the nape of my neck and some at the back are a small pen or pencil diameter and my finger can no where near fit in them ! But I have curls that are the size of a sharpie pen but I have no curls that are below that , I know for a fact I don’t have 3a definitely not

    @rabar And  I have the really small tight ones dotted all over not in just those places 
  • rabarrabar Posts: 60Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Dabbler
    Okay!  Then I would definitely say 3B/3C mix!  Hope that helps :)

    @Guide 65 Thank you so much! You’re hair looks beautiful! What type are you ?
  • Guide 65Guide 65 Posts: 1,954Registered Users, Moderators Curl Virtuoso
    Thank you!  I'd say I'm currently a 2a/b.  It gets curlier when it's shorter, so I could go up to a 2c if I cut it short.  I like having longer hair though, so I'm happy with my waves.
