Curl type?

I just started doing the CGM this morning, but still pretty confused about my hair type. Can y'all help me out, please?

    You are a 2c! The longer you follow the CGM (aka the healthier your hair becomes) the more defined your 2c hair will be. I wish you the best on your hair journey!

    I was thinking 2c/3a, but wasn't quite sure. Before damaging my hair by straightening it on a near daily basis, my curls used to be a lot more defined, and I think it was closer to 3a, I'm hoping by following the CGM I can get them back. :)

    Thanks again for your input!

    a lot of 2cs turn out to be 3a (myself included) once they are on the cg regime for bit. each person is different, my hair responded in a couple of weeks, some longer. or, your hair may just stay 2c in a very healthy way.

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(

    Yes, I agree with the others and think you are a 2C. I'm pretty sure I'm a 2C, too. I've been on the CG method for about two months...and have never had this much curl in the winter! I'm loving it!
    2C with straighter hair underneath.
    Low density; unsure of porosity.
    Had straight hair as a child that became wavy at puberty.

    Your curls look pretty similar to mine, so I'm going to have to agree on the 2c front. You'll probably see 3a pop up once you've been on a routine for a while, specially since you said your hair was curlier before straightening.
