2a or 2b? Very dry/frizzy hair too!

Hullo everyone!
I think my hair is a 2A but I'm not sure because sometimes the hair on the sides of my head look like a 2B. What do you guys think? Please check the first attached thumbnail~

Although... the back of my hair is extremely damaged and dry and frizzy! Aurgh. I'm not sure what to do about it. Does anyone have some tips for me? Anything would help, thanks. :)

    I'm no good with typing, I'll leave that for others. Are you CG?

    I think your hair is more like a 2a because it has more of that S wave. Your hair is really pretty to.

    Love the length and cut. It's so pretty, and you are too! :)

    I can't help you with curl type, but i do agree that it looks a tiny bit dry. Do you avoid sulfate shampoos? I'd try co-washing as much as possible, and using a rich leave-in conditioner and/or doing some deep treatments, if you don't already.

    Again, gorgeous hair. My dream length! :)

    I'd say a 2a, but with the proper care and products it looks like it could be 2b. Definitely try to get more moisture into your hair, that should help with the dizziness and dryness at the ends. Is your hair coarse? Coarse hair tends to need more moisture and less protein. Regardless, your hair is gorgeous!
