I know there are different methods of determining your hair type, but How do you know?

Well, some people may have two hair types, like myself. I have Type 4b and 4c hair, which means that my hair is a medium between moderate kinks and extreme kinks.

I used these sites to determine my hair type.
http://www.curlmart.com
http://www.curls.biz (the best one)

Also, do the aqua strand test. Pluck a strand of your hair (free of chemicals) into a 8 oz glass of cold water. If you hair sinks to the bottom, incorporate more leafy greens into your diet. If your hair sinks to the middle, incorporate more fruit. However, if your hair floats at the top of the water, no worries, your hair is extremely healthy.

Make sure that your hair is free of chemicals and is not thermally treated.

Hope this helps!
