2 or 3? I can't decided. Both?

Hopefully there are some curly ladies getting snowed in who want to help me determine my curl type today! I've been using Deva Curl products religiously for about 6 months now and I'm terrible at deciding curl type. My hair is fine and can get pretty frizzy.

    hard to say, it could be both which is what most of us have. i.e., my hair is predominately 3a, but there are many 3b curls with some strands of 2c. which is why i absolutely always have to have a dry cut.

    your hair could be 3a with a deva cut and different products. my hair found the deva products (after they reformulated in 2009) extremely drying.

    in any case, your hair is beautiful whatever category it is in!

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

    Thanks! I haven't felt like it was too drying. If anything, I think it weighs it down after awhile. Many years ago I had a Ouidad cut. Wasn't a fan. I have been wanting to try a Deva cut, but there really aren't any places closer than 2 hours away that I can find.

    Most of us have at least two curl patterns on our heads. I would say that yours looks to be predominantly 3a. I find that when there is more moisture in the air, I have 2b, but in the dry winter months, it is more like 2a.
