Hair Type? (i Think I'm 2 Diffrent Ones)

Ac95213Ac95213 Posts: 3Registered Users
Okay i need some help because i'm not sure about my hair type.
(3b or 3c)..The picture of me and my friend shows my hair when i do braid outs with nothing but water and pomade.
As you all can see my hair is thick so it tends to really frizz up and get dry. Not only do I need to know my hair type but i need to know what products would help me with frizz, moisturize and give curl definition.And won't cause SHRINKAGE!. (I've been considering [buylink=]Mixed Chicks Leave-In[/buylink])
Help guys..:confused5:mejanelleanddiamond-1.jpg

    You look like a 4a/4b to me! I love the thickness of your hair!

    Oh, and I wouldn't recommend Miss Jessies stuff. A lot of people are not pleased now with their products because they changed the ingredients and added crappy ingredients such as mineral oil to the products. There are a lot of product recommendations on the 4a board.

    You're beautiful!

    Looks like 4a + 4b mix to me...but I'm no expert.

    I've read that a mixture is not uncommon.

    Good luck pretty woman!

    You said your hair in the pic is a braidout. Do you have any pics where your hair is freshly washed or air dried?

    ETA: I see that the second pic is a co wash.

    I would say 4a

    I think you should post your pics, and information about your hair in the 3c section so you can get more information about hair products from 3c curlies. That's what I did, and I got A LOT more responses. You're not going to get too many responses in the teen section, especially about products for your hair type.
