These should be good quality pictures to tell my hair type.... 

what type of do i have?

I have never let it grow longer than 3 inches.... but this year I want to let it grow all year round so maybe 7-10 inches. 

 What type of coral or wave do you think my hair will have when it grows really long ?

 Thanks in advance

    It looks like 2b/2c, my hairdresser told me that with wavy hair, the more your hair is long the sharper waves your going to have so maybe when it will grow it might be 2c or maybe even 3a at the tips.. but you can't really know..
