    You look like you're probably 3a to me. Waves are more 2D and your hair looks like it is 3D - some slight spiraling. It's not tight curls, though, so looks 3a to me! From the tiny pics, it looks very pretty!

    I'd say 3a with some 2c in there.

    Med/Coarse, porous curly.

    Many thanks for taking the time to look and reply I value all opinions. Now I just need to get the scalp under control and try to get more curls :toothy4:

    First time I've seen "D" referred to in hair typing??? NetG, where would we read information about that?

    fairly sure she meant 2-d as in 2-dimensional. as opposed to 3-dimensional curl patterns.

    my hair loves protein and hates jojoba oil, my scalp hates propylene glycol, my face hates silicones.

    Yep. Thanks for translating ;)

    Type 2 waves only go left/right or up/down, whereas type 3s are 3-dimensional in their shape. :)

    Thanks, hadn't thought of it that way. With the a/b/c curl types--and the discussions about adding a mid type for those who were between "3a" and "3b," I thought I might have missed something!
