Help me with my hair texture (3C, 4A?)

Hello. I never did anything with my hair. But the time has come when I decided to take care of my hair. And I thought, what is the texture of my hair? 3C, 4A? Or the other? Now they are short, about 0.39 inches. I really need your opinion! By the way, I am mixed, Ethiopian, Armenian, and Russian. In this photo I just used the product to define curls.

    Welcome to nc.com. My thought is they are 3c because they look like straw-width curls. However I'm not entirely sure, and also, if you are trying to grow your hair, the curl-type may change. Your hair looks cool. :)

    I also think probably 3c. Love to see it as it grows longer!  Thanks for joining our curly community!
