2b/3a? pics included...

I already posted in a couple others threads today saying that I was a 2b wave with 3a curl. Now I'm not sure!

I'm new! So, um, hi, lol!

What do you think...

Here is a couple pics, as it is now. Don't laugh, I'm all wide-eyed for some damn reason, lol...

    You definitely look like you have fine hair so the way I interpret the "system" is that you are a "2". And you definitely have some ringlets amongst some very healthy waves so I would say 2B or 2C. Cute hair!

    very fine hair-daily humidity battle
    2B so far, wash daily w/gentle poo, clarify wkly

    I would say you definitely have the potential to be a 3a.

    Your hair still curls when it's really short, so I'm thinking you're mostly 3a. Your hair looks very fine and a little dry and tangly in the long-haired pictures, so I bet that's what weighs it down and makes it appear less curly. My hair does that too.

    Mostly 3a - though most people have 2 textures, and when they're a 3a, it tends to be 2c/3a curls and waves.

    3a hair examples are Julia Roberts, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Left to not much product or styling, and it's more wavy, but with products, and encouragement, your hair becomes much curlier. This hair also gets curlier the longer it gets. When 3a's cut their hair short, they end up having a harder time getting their hair to form curls. It needs to be longer to form curls b/c the "S" patterns are more stretched out.

    Our hair tends to be fine, still need lots of moisture, but still easily weighed down.
