2C or 3A (probably the Nth thread, sorry!)

I'm trying to work out my hair type, and am having little luck!


That's what my hair looks like when leaving it to air dry, and I'm not sure if it's 2C or 3A. Help!!!

    Hmm...my first thought was how curly you were, so I'd go with 3A. This site might be helpful, too. http://homepage.mac.com/annsofie.henriksson/hairtyping/Personal27.html
    Good luck!
    2c-3a. Thick density. Texture = mixture of medium and fine.

    Always trying to boost my curl!

    Go-to products: Pink Boots, CJSG, LALSG, Abba Pure Finish gel
    Experimenting with: CJAF, CJ CCCC, JCRR/CC, BRHG, PB Goo, Re:Coil, Komaza CHP, EcoStyler Protein
    Didn't like: HESMU, Matrix Biolage Gelee (both too goopy)

    Thank you think_n_wavy. I'm actually glad my mum talked me out of cutting it shorter now. We got into a massive argument over it because I wanted to go back to being level with my jaw but she said it wouldn't look right with a sari (which I hated wearing!).

    Aww thank you :oops:

    I've managed to limit the use of my GHDs to when I need to put my hair up for lab class. I'm no longer fighting, but embracing the curl!
