Hair type???

Hi!

How do I know what type of curly/wavy hair that I have? I've seen some 2a-2c and 3a-3c. What is this? How do I determine my number?

:wink:
Thanks!

    Most of us have hair that's a combination of different types. Personally, I have everything from 2b to the occasional 3c, but I call myself a 3a because most of my hair curls in loose spirals. Maybe if you could post some pics, that would help us better determine your type.

    you might want to start this topic on the general hair discussion board because it gets more traffic than this one, so more people would see it and respond.

    to post pics, go to a photo sharing site like tinypic.com and upload a digital image. After you upload it, there will be something saying "IMG code for forums and message boards" and underneath those words there will be a line of text. Copy and paste that into the message and post it as usual :P
