2c or 3a?

I'm new to this site and I have a hard time to decide what is my curl type. What do you think?

    Thats some beautiful hair! Do you have to scrunch to get your hair to form that pattern? If not, you are definitely a 3A. If so, I'm a little on the fence but still leaning towards 3A because it looks like you have the type of hair that grows out and not down.
    Have several allergies and sensitivities.
    Current products
    Low Poo/Cowash: Rio Grande Herb Co Negrita and Amole Deep Treatment Concentrate, Magick Botanicals (MB) Shampoo (diluted)
    Rinse out/Leave in: MB with apricot kernel and jojoba oils added
    Protein Treatment: MB Conditioner for Thinning Hair, IAgirl's protien treatment
    Style: MB Gel mixed with LOTD Aloe Vera Gelly


    2b-c, need lots of moisture, likes protein in moderation.

    no, it is my hair with no products. I cant decide, because it is more wavy than curly. but since it is long, maybe it is weighted down. thanks for your help a lot:)

    Curl type isn't as important as knowing your hair properties!
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    I agree with this. I think you're more 3a, as I'm more 2c and have to scrunch a lot to get curl, esp at that length. 3a will have less of a problem there.
