Which hair type am I?

I am new to the website am trying to determine my hair type so I can make it look better. I tried looking through old posts but it got overwhelming. I know my hair is medium density, medium width, and normal porosity. I just want to know what curl pattern it seems that I have so I can monitor my progress. I looked at photos but couldn't decide if I'm 2A, 2B, or 2C.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I couldn't get a good photo of the back of my hair. But here are two side views:

    Is your hair styled in this picture? Because if not you may have more curl potential. Also sometimes when your hair is longer is can get curlier because if it's too short it might not clump as well. You have very pretty hair though. I love the color and it looks very soft. I would not worry so much about the labeling but I think 2B-2C.

    Thanks dusalocks. I just co-washed and put in a little leave in that day. No gels or anything else. It was my third day of CG. I don't have any before that because I round brushed and blow dried it pretty often.

    At least you gave me hope for a curlier future once it gets a little longer. (currently growing out a bad cut from July)

    oh geez, I guess I just cant see pics on my ipad. duh.
    I think 2a/b But I think over time and if your hair grows it will get curlier. That's sort of how mine is.
