I am new to the site and I have a few questions. I have no idea what my hair type is. My avatar picture is from when I was natural a few years ago. I permed again, and now I have a VERY short twa. Can anyone tell me what hair type I have? It is gets curly when wet (slightly smaller then a pencil). I can't blow it out into an afro because it starts to get straight (I used to try to blow it out so that I could have a puff). The only time I can have a puff is when I wet it, but when it dries it starts to hang if my hair is long. It's thick but it doesn't bounce at all when its dry it just lays there looking very dry despite what I put in it. When I try to wear a twist out it NEVER looks cute. It gets really flat and doesn't bounce up or look poofy.
