What is my hair type? (pics)

I used to be certain that i was a 3A, but i think my curls don't form as well since I started bleaching and flat ironing my hair. Maybe it is more 2C now, but would be 3A if i stopped bleaching. What do you think from the pictures below? 3A, 2C or something else? Thanks! Editing to say sorry to post so many and so big...I didn't know it would post that big. I just really want to get an idea of my hair type because I am looking for new products so I can stop flat ironing. Oh, my bangs are flat ironed in a couple of the pics.

    I think you are right. 2C but could be 3A. I think the third pic is most 3A. But I am bad at typing. I still don't know what I am FOR SURE.

    2b to 2c. Doesn't seem to spiral/coil enough to say it's in the 3 category. It ripples more then coils.
    Natural since 11/25/09
    Then: fine, superdry, non-elastic, porous
    Now: medium, dry, elastic, lower porosity, BSL
