Curl diameter of Type 4c curl pattern

 My finger is magnified in the picture above.  The picture below is more actual size.  The diameter of my curl pattern is sooooo small that you can barely see the hair on my finger without magnifying it.

Totally different perspective of the same hair right?  Did you know that your sistah's curl pattern can be so different than yours?

Pictured is two (top curl) to four months (bottom curl) of hair growth all curled up on itself, and people wonder why they are not seeing grow.  If you have two to fours months of hair breaking off at one time, then you probably are not going to gain length quickly unless you control the breakage. Tight curl patterns that are resistant to elongation can break easily if it does not stay hydrated whether it is loose or locked hair.

Blowdrying this curl pattern with a comb attachment would do more damage than good. A Denman brush or a boar bristle brush would be the only way to go.

So does anyone have a curl pattern diameter smaller than mine?  If so, I want to hear from you!!!!!
