What Hair Type am I?

I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what hair type I have.
I posted 2 pictures to examine!

If this helps, my hair feels almost wool like without hair the use of hair products, and at worst like an s.o.s steel wool pad! My father (who is Caribbean) has super coarse hair that breaks off when it grows beyond a few inches, and my mother who is Irish has poofy wavy hair that is slightly coarse. I am a "neat" combination of both.

Any thoughts?

    uh - 3C, 4A? As in, both. Gorgeous curls, really nice, and I love your freckles :)
    Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
    S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
    My hair officially hates protein ;) Once a month is enough!
    Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay! :D
    BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!

    Is your hair brushed out in these pictures? Because if it is then I don't think we can really judge from them. I just don't see any defined ringlets, and it looks like your getting your hair done.
