    Its hard to tell until you cut, but you had some loose spirals. I'd say from a range of 3b-4a.:mrgreen:

    It's hard to tell. Looks like a 3c/4a combo from what I can see.
    Transitioning since 11/6/08.

    I am not expert but i am assuming the frizz will not go away. only because i see alot of naturals that talk about battling frizz and they would normally have to use products to assist with that issue.

    ur new growth looks exactly like mine when i was transitioning. i'd say ur a 3c/4a. as for the frizz, it might go away. i had frizz at the beginning but its all gone now.

    you look to be a combination of 3 and 4. There's a thread on here to tells you the different types and shows you pictures.
