Help me find my Type!!

So, I've officially started the CG method as of today. I cleansed my hair with a sulfate clairifying shampoo and conditioned with a silicone free conditioner. I didn't do anything else besides getting out excess moisture with a cotton t-shirt.
Please excuse my rosacea. I didn't put any make up on today. One is from right out of the shower (the one with the phone) and the others are completely air dried.

    Hello! First off, I want to say that you have beautiful shiny smooth waves! As far as what type... I think a mix of 2A and 2B, but I am no expert!

    HEllo!

    Your hair is really nice and shiny! Great definition too; I'm impressed it looks so good with no product. Honestly I don't think your hair needs anything in terms of stylers. You can always try to play around with products and see what happens. Just have fun!

    I would agree with 2a/2b. Your hair looks like mine, and that's what I consider mine to be. Your hair looks lovely even without product!

    You're leaning more towards 2b than 2a (I can tell from the wet hair photo, 2b curls start closer to the roots than 2a) but you definitely have both, you may find that as you continue your curl pattern will get stronger and you will most definitely find that day to day your curls won't look the same! Many of us have had our curls change as we've learned more about them and what they like/don't like in the way of care and ingredients in hair products. I have been at this for years already, even before I found this forum and I am still forever learning, the lingo, new info on ingredients, methods, etc. Your hair looks healthy which is great too, makes for a much easier transition! :thumright:

    2b/2c - f - iii - low porosity - normal elasticity

    I rotate through the rest of my products depending on weather and etc but usually don't need them
    I try not to use products tested on animals if I can help it.
