    Don't fret Pam, I'm sure someone will be along soon to help you out. Give it a little more time. *hugs*

    I can't help, because I'm no good at hair typing, but I don't think your hair is a lost cause at all. Congratulations on embracing your curls! :blob7:

    I DID THE BC ON MAY 24TH, 2009 @ approximately 2:00am!

    Hey, Curlygirl! I agree--you do look like a 3A; however, I'm not a typing expert. Your hair seems to curl like mine, and I'm a 3a/b...I've been CG since last summer, and my curls have been getting tighter, so it's possible that you'll be more of a 3b once the straightener is all out. And just to be a little more sure, look at the Home page and read up on the Hair types. http://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types

    I check out both the 3a & 3b threads for info & advice--give them both a shot! Have fun with the different threads on nc.com--people are really terrific and helpful.
