    sorry to have so little knowledge, but how exactly do you tell the hair type? curl circumference?
  • ninadefninadef Registered Users Posts: 243
    You look a lot like a couple of my sons, except they're not caucasian.

    I'd say 3c, there's a chart here on nc somewhere, check that out.

    Congratulations on having gorgeous hair, your sister must be so envious!

    well actually my sister hates curly hair haha, I don't understand why, curly hair is the best.

    yeah sometimes people ask me about my background thinking there is some islander in the genes haha that could explain why you think I look like your sons, got any pics of them?
    I really like your hair in your pic, very tight curls

    Race is an illusionary concept anyway so it def. isn't always the best indicator for what kind of curls you have.

    Here are my thoughts on your hair. In the above two pictures I would say you are a pretty solid 3C (as measured by circumference and in those pictures I think they look pencile sized, plus they hang).

    But in other pictures I see 4A. Sometimes they two are interchangeable. I think you are between, so check out both boards, see what works best for you.

    Oh yeah and either way, your hair is smexy. lol

    Your hair is so pretty. Do you twist the hairs or do the curls just fall that way?

    I reject curltyping but if you want to type, I'd say 3c/4a.

    Who knows but it's really pretty. :)

  • VersaceCrazyVersaceCrazy Registered Users Posts: 662
    I'm not a curl connisseur or anything but to me, it looks like you could be a 3c with maybe a lil 3b mixed in there. I don't see 4a at all. I think your curls just look tighter in the pics because you twisted them...but they're beautiful I love 'em!:love8:

    in replying to WAVEZNCURLZ, in the first photo my hair is kinda frizzy because I had just been for a surf so the salt water makes my hair go all fluffly haha.
    In the second photo I have twisted my hair with wax.
    naturally its in between the two photos.

    i'm thinking 3c. your curls are incredible by the way!

    Omg, you have such good definition. Half my hair underneath is like that but the curl splits and frizzes and.. ugh, it's just a mess.

    my curls are larger in diameter and my individual strands may be thicker b/c my hair wouldn't fall on my forehead in bangs as uniformly as yours does. but the texture is the same.i actually just told friends recently that the only time i've ever seen someone with a similar texture, it was a natural blonde who had lots of texture. mine are not holding their curl like yours but it's the same texture. unfortunately, i have to try to wear mine a bit longer than yours- which is hard to do!
