    it looks 2a/2b

    Don't use leave-in conditioner

    Straighten hair occasionally. I use Organix Brazilian Keratin Flat Iron Spray to protect from heat damage.

    mostly 2b, some 2c, 3a on rare days. Low porosity, medium density, fine texture.

    It depends on your hair's thickness. In the Naturally Curly hair-typing system, 2a = thin wavy hair, 2b = medium wavy hair, and 2c = thick wavy hair. The "thick, thin, etc." refers to the thickness or diameter of an individual strand of hair, NOT how thick your hair is altogether. Your hair looks medium thickness to me, so I would say 2b, although other people's assessments of 2a might refer more to how curly your hair is.

    As fun as it is to determine your curl type, properties like your hair's porosity, texture, elasticity, and density are what's really important in figuring out products and techniques. ;)

    Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.

    Low poo: Organix TTM, Essential Wholesale Free & Clean
    Stylers: EcoStylers, GF Curl Shaping Gel, Aussie Aussome Volume Mousse & Instant Freeze Gel, GFPC, LALNC, La Bella Lots of Curls, Apricot Oil, KMFUM, AO B5DG
    Extras: sugar scrubs, AVG washes, pre-poos with EVCO, oiling scalp before washes, plopping, gelatin PT.
