Help! Am I a 2C or a 3A

I can't seem to figure out which one I am: Wavy Whirly, or Curly Twirly.
I've been low poo for a while, using only a low sulfate shampoo about once a month to get rid of buildup. Even then, I still do a coconut oil treatment before hand and use a shampoo that's mixed with argan oil.

This is my hair dried normally, with only a bit of leave-in conditioner and shea butter put in when wet, then plopped.

    Im a total im prob wrong, but i say 2c
    Just starting CG (04/18/13)
    2C/3A hair, medium texture, normal porosity (I think!)
    Trying out: Suave Naturals wild strawberry (co-wash) Garnier Fructis Pure and Clean fortifying conditioner, Redken crystal curls 6, Live Clean Argan Oil Treatment, Pantene curl shaping gel
    Thinking of trying: Live Clean Argan oil conditioner or Live Clean Bali Oil conditioner....who recommends them?

    I've started using different products, so my texture has changed a touch.




    Sorry that picture of me is a bit rubbish. My glasses were practically falling off my face.
