Below you will see two charts that I believe will make things easier on most of us.
Identifying the curl pattern can be overwhelming and it can be confusing. Our dear friend from Kandy Land Kurls found this amazing and easy to read chart.
Ms. Bree has a combination of curls but most of them are 3C and doing the LOC method works for her at all times.
I also found this Curly Hair Growth Chart on @Naturallycurly.com.
Some of the most asked questions in the curly hair world are about hair growth and curl pattern.
These two charts will give you a better idea on how fast/how long curly hair should grow and instead of obsessing about the "curl pattern", what you really need to know about curly hair.
I think both charts are extremely helpful and I'm sure you will too!
