    Your curl type will become more apparent as you treat your hair well. It's really far more important to know your hair properties. Is your hair fine, medium or coarse (that's texture)? Would you say your hair gets wet quickly and dries quickly (that's high porosity), or takes a while to get wet and a long time to dry (that's low porosity)? Does it break easily, or does it stretch and bounce back (that's elasticity)? Is your hair densely packed, or about average (I can see it isn't thin)?

    Knowing those things will help you find products with the ingredients which will help your hair respond best.

    In the meantime, if you haven't got the book, Curly Girl: The Handbook, also available at Amazon, I can't emphasis strongly enough how helpful it would be. You can get a lot of the information here, but you're not going to get it straight from the original curly girl's mouth, won't have the full explanations, the organization, the clear illustrations, or the great videos (on the DVD which comes with the book). There is no substitute!

    My hairs a medium texture. Yeah I think it gets wet quick and dries fairly quickly. It doesn't break easily, it stretches an bounces back. I'm not sure about the density possibly average.

    I'd suggest clicking on "User CP" which is right over "post reply" just above the second turquoise line/block, and under "Control Panel,"then "Settings & Options," choose "Edit Signature."

    Type into the text block how you want to sign your posts, then hit return twice, and put,
    Medium texture, high porosity, normal density, and high elasticity

    Some people also add a line each for each type of hair product (shampoo/low-poo/co-wash, rinse out conditioner, leave in conditioner, styling products, and finishing products), and list what they use.

    That way, when you post anything, people reading it can quickly see your hair properties, and will be more likely to give you answers which are appropriate. You can also look for those properties in other people's signatures, and follow posts by people whose hair is most like yours.
