My Hair Type Help!

I know a lot of people ask this but what hair type do you think I am? I'm thinking 2c. My hair is extremely thick (most stylists I go to comment I have about 3 heads worth of hair). I see the S pattern (I think?). Unlike true blue curlies my hair doesn't seem to respond too badly to occasional shampooing and it seems if I use too many products or too much it makes my hair too poofy. Sorry for the lousy pic. I haven't had a cut in 2 months. My hair is a bit dry. I'm trying to come up with a good routine. I'm pretty happy with my current routine but trying to find ways to add moisture to my hair and retaining that soft feel. Oh and I have an order for Curl Keeper on the way! Cannot wait! Any help is appreciated!!!!

    Hi :) I don't see your photo?
    2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
    fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

    Sorry I'm an idiot when it comes to figuring out had to update pics! I just added it. I apologize for the stupid picture. My friend and I are always teasing when people post bathroom pics that we intentionally take pics of ourselves and post them as jokes! I have a hair appt on Tuesday. I am hoping this girl (who also has super curly thick hair) is the answer to my prayers!

    Hmmm...it's hard to see your hair really well in that pic, but I think you are on the right track with 2c. But determining your hair properties is more important than curl pattern in terms of product choices.
