hi everyone. I am wondering if someone could give me advice on my hair type. I'm thinking it's 2c or 3a but I'm new to the numbering system. Thanks so much :)

    I think it's mostly 3a with some 2c.
    - Brownish black 2C/3A hair with some 2a/2b
    - Low porosity, little split ends and breakage
    - Fine hair, medium/thick density
    - No to little root curl
    - Can be styled anywhere from 2a to 3a according to need
    - Virgin hair (never have been chemically or heat treated before)

    - Shampoo: Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal
    - Conditioner: Moringa Oleifera & Olive Oil Natur Conditioner
    - Deep condition oil: Mustika Ratu Cemceman Hair Oil
    - Styler + leave in: Ovale Olive Oil
