Picked the wrong hair type? Help!

My problem with finding a good moisturizer for my hair is starting to get frustrating. The creams are too heavy and the hair milk I just bought is too light. I have always considered myself as a 4c by default but today I decided to go back to basics. After re read the hair type descriptions turns out I might be a 4a or 4b. I have low porosity, high density, fine strands, lots of shrinkage and tightly coily hair with product and looser coils without product.

Could you look at my avatar and tell me what you think?

My second question is you supposed to judge your curl pattern WITHOUT any product? I’m trying to better the L.O.C method and my wash n gos but cannot do that if I’m buying the wrong product.
I just need an unbiased opinion.

Thank you so much! :iconbiggrin:
