Ok so I see so many questions about hair typing so I decided to create my own hair typing diagram! I will be putting this in my fotki when it's perfected... so let me know if you have any objections: First let me begin by saying that I think a lot of the confusion comes from the fact that their are subtypes within every hair type... for example some 3c's will hang and some will not; some 4a's will have definition and some will not; some level 4s will have fine hair and some will have coarse; and there will be curl size variation within each type group as well. Type 1- Straight Hair Type 2- Waves 2a 2b Type 3- Looser Curls to Kinks 3a (I know it's not her natural texture but it's a good example) 3b 3c 4a- Tighter Curls to Kinks 4b *Some women with very tight 4b textures may use the term 4z (i.e. z-shaped strands) So tell me how's that ladies? All imput is welcome!
