3a?? Would appreciate help in determining hair type

I believe I am either a 3a or 3b (?) - or perhaps a mix - but would really appreciate your help in determining this.

I sometimes get corkscrews right around my face, but not always, and this seems to be the only place I get them.

    Hi there!

    Your hair looks a bit like mine ... I would consider it a 3a. It's so nice and thick! I love your clumps :-)

    2c/3a - coarse texture, little volume - still experimenting!

    Thanks for responding & for the compliment!

    I don't know now - I am starting to think I am maybe a 2c or 2c/3a. Have cross-posted in 2c to see if I have more feedback there. :happy11:

    From the last two photos I'd say you're at least a 3a, with some 3bs in there as well. you have great hair!!!

    Curlywurly: Thanks for feedback and compliment! I had a look in your albums and your hair is fantastic! Love it!

    Yes, following several responses I am starting to think I wasn't wrong thinking I was a 3a :-) Now I just need to figure out porosity and elasticity...

    I too, would say 3A/B. Your earlier pictures looked more like the 2's.

    Say, your hair looks a lot like mine (I get face-framing corkscrews too)... only much nicer and clumpier. :) I'm hoping mine'll get like that consistently soon. You're definitely a 3A, especially post-cowash.
    Thick, mostly 2c with some 3a; fine texture, medium/high porosity, and a very strange curl & wave pattern.

    Started CG (properly) as of 6/31/2009.

    Cowash | Suave Naturals Ocean Breeze or Juicy Green Apple
    Rinse-out | Burt's Bees Super Shiny
    Leave-in | Live Clean Intense Moisturizing
    Gel | HESMU

    Right now: growing hair past shoulder-length, looking to take decent hair picture (my avatar is my first day of CG).

    Wow, your hair is beautiful! I think it's 3A with a few 3B curls throw into the mix. :)
