Like a lot of people I am pretty confused about the whole hair typing thing. It seems pretty simple just focusing on curl size, but everyone else’s confusion confuses me lol. I have been typed by others and I pretty sure I am a 3c/4a. The back and middle of my hair is mostly 4a with coils smaller than the diameter of a pencil, and the front and nape is 3c with coils the size of a pencil. My hair is pretty cottony when dry and I think my strands are medium sized.
Here are a couple pics of my wet naked hair after being shampooed and conditioned:
