Not sure which curl type I have?

So I just recently cut off all of my relaxed ends (which I'm SO happy about). I'm 19 and I haven't had my hair natural since I was about 8, so it's hard to tell what my curl pattern is. Some parts look like they're 3b, but then there are other parts that look 3c. It's hard for me to tell the difference.

What hair products would be best for my curls? I have pretty course/dry hair.

    Congrats!! You look mainly 3c (but you probably have a mix) try SheaMoisture curl milk or smoothie, it feels like butter and is very moisturizing

    IMO it's not the curl pattern but the actual hair properties (ex. Porosity, protein sensitivities) that determine what products your hair will like best. Unfortunately for me the only way I figured out what my hair properties were I became a product junkie. But I think that's something all us naturalistas go through. But Shea moisture and kinky curly product are a good place to start.
