My hair has a shine when the camera has a flash on, but in natural light it looks like a sheen.  But I havent held it taught in natural light though.  It takes a lot to get thoroughly wet.

I think I'm cottony, but I'm not sure...

hi everyone,

i hope that these pics help out any 4b/4c peeps who are thinking about what type of hair they have.

my hair is wiry; it is kinky coily; i have very fine to fine strands:

here it is wet; water beads up on my hair and my hair never really feels super/soaking wet; the white spots in the picture are beads of water:



here it is dry; ignore the random twists at the top. i was attempting some sort of style that didn't work out LOL; whenever i do a style, my hair will take on the shape of the style so my hair can look very stretched out from a bun or a chunky twist out :

I have yet to figure out what's going on with my hair so I have no idea what category it would fall into.  The perimeter appears to be silky 3c.  It curls up and defines easily when wet, but the rest...well idk what it's doing. 

LOL sounds like the opposite of mine.. the top middle and back are 4a, feels great, very easy to style, but the sides, lawd...knotty, dry, wont curl up so it doesnt match the rest of my hair, it just won't do shyt lol

i think i am spongy overall though

THATS SOOOO MY HAIR! if u can imagine the hair u would shave off on the sides all the way back for a mohawk...that shyat is nappy as hayle!!!

LOL that is me exactly!
you can kinda see here

i'm trying to upload pics I took last night and this morning so i can get some feedback. If I'm right, my hair is a low porosity, wiry texture, I believe I also have s and o curl patterns. I see more of a looser texture in the front and a little tighter where the o patterns are in the back. silly me though, i only thought to take pics of my hair from the front for the most part. I think I can dig up older pics I took, my hair may be shorter though. I dunno if that makes much difference.

here goes. the back:


^^my hair was still a little damp there

My hair's still damp in all of these pics. I've gotten into the habit of stretching while washing and afterwards to air dry so I don't have any pics of it without the braid/twist outs





This morning bantu knot out with flash:


without flash:




I'm still not sure, can I be typed? Smile
