    You look somewhat 3a-ish to me. However, keep in mind that curl type won't help you find your best products - determining your hair's porosity and texture will. Tiffany's (aka Struttswife here) website can help you figure this out: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Flivecurlylivefree.com%2Fcurly%2520hair%2520basics.htm" class="Popup . For starting out, if you want to do the CG method, there is a guide to the method in the Newbies forum above. Also, LauraLee has written an excellent introduction here: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fdormroomcurly.blogspot.com%2F2008%2F12%2Fstyle-definitions-table.html" class="Popup

    Hope that helps!

    Hi MM24,

    I'm mixed too and you could be my hair twin. Your hair looks just like mine and I'm a 3a; but OOW is correct. Check out the websites she listed. I recommend the CG routine. I've been on it only a week an noticed a difference in my curls. They are much more well moisturized and more easily managed.
