What kind of rope should you use to hang yourself?

Classic style: Manila hemp rope. In executions this is prepared especially by boiling and/or stretching to remove elasticity and tendency to coil.

Alternatively: Synthetic fiber rope. Allows a smaller diameter to be used to handle the same amount of weight and have a lower amount of give to them. However, there is then a greater "risk" (or possibility) of decapitation if you're attempting a long drop hanging to break your neck. You might then not be able to use the state execution drop tables.

If you can't get hold of a rope, people have also hanged themselves especially in partial suspension with electric cables, towels and so on.

In hangings with no or little drop, I can imagine the type of rope having little importance?

One user with experience on hanging had suggested to me that I use static climbing rope, that is rope that isn't designed to stretch.

This is also for other people who need help with hanging, not just for me
