2b or 2c?

I'm pretty sure I've figured out my hair properties, so I thought it would be fun to know my hair type. I think I'm a 2b, but I'm not positive. What do you guys think?

    your hair looks a LOT like mine! mine is probably thicker and it's shorter, but my hair also leans toward fine and lower porosity.

    too bad i don't have any good hair only shots at work.

    hair likes protein, doesn't like oils, easily OC'd
