Curly or wavy?

I tried to determine my hair type, but I don't recognize my hair on any of the photos. Is it curly or wavy?
I see some spirals but from the distance it definitely looks more wavy.
So what do you think?:)

    Your hair looks 2C/3A on bottom. While it's straight on top, that can very likely be due to the length pulling out your curl. The rest looks 2B.

    Super baby fine hair, low porosity
    Shampoos: SM Fruit Fusion (mostly), Avalon lemon (to clarify). Occasional aloe vera and glycerin to wash.

    I agree with naturecat that the bottom looks 3A--it reminds me of the hair of the gal who has a site called Just Curly, and she considers her hair to be 3A. Most of the hair, however, looks wavy as opposed to curly, probably due to the length of the hair pulling some of the curl out.
