    Hard to say for sure, but 2b with some 3a thrown in for confusion?

    predominantly 2b but with some 3a? Might look 3a if it is longer.

    bump.
    I'm sorry if I'm being a pain, but I'd love it if we could do a scientific poll regarding my hair type! Sorry if you've already answered my other thread about this - would you mind doing this poll too?
    Thanks.

    I voted for 3a, because I think it's slightly more curly that wavy, but I actually think it's between 2 and 3a. I don't think this typing system is adequate. I believe there is another category of loose/inconsistent curls between wavy and 3a. This is how I describe my hair. It's not wavy, because the curls do not lay flat and go side to side. But it's also not curly, because the curls flatten out and are not consistently shaped spirals.

    My vote is for 3a. Your curls look very similar to mine and I call mine 3a. :)

    I'd say 3a.
  • Curly BearCurly Bear Posts: 11Registered Users
    I said 2B, mostly. Your hair is similar to mine; as your hair gets longer, there is a good possiblity you could become a 3A. It looks great! :)
    Anywhere from 2c to 3a/b; I have no idea. EEE! I need to put up more pictures! I have 20 million, and they just need scanning....

    2b/3a

    "Other". I think it looks wavy now but I also think it looks like it wants to spiral. Wavy hair does not spiral. 3a hair typically gets curlier as it gets longer so it might be that your hair is 3a but too short to completely show it.
    3a/b, fine, lots of it
  • miacurlmiacurl Posts: 332Registered Users
    Yes, as the light is better in here now....leaning more to 3a :?

    3a. Why don't you try blowdrying it a bit w/ a diffuser. That way you can coax your curls into shape. I'm a very curly 3a, but I'd never get that way if I air dried.

    Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.

    Definately 2b. My hair is 3a with some 3b and my hair almost always curls into spirals and ringlets when it is wet. I would say more wavy but it could also be the length. Maybe if it was longer it would curl more into ringlets. :D

    I voted the same way for the same reason. I predict that your hair will look more spirally as it gets longer.

    I agree with corzcurlz try diffusing and then let us see pics. Your texture and length look a lot like mine but I have more spiral. I probably have more layers too. However, my hair can look so much better or different after I diffuse. So you might want to give it a try. I consider my hair 3a.
    Good Luck, I know how frustrating curls can be sometimes :wink: .
  • razicellirazicelli Posts: 139Registered Users
    I think mostly 2b with some 3a.
    I agree with corzcurlz, gentle diffusing with a hotsock and gentle scrunching would coax more 3a.

    I think Michelle is right. You, she and I have the same hairtype. She once coined it "incoherent".
