    Pretty hair!  I would say maybe a 2b/2c.  It doesn't really matter much.  Curl pattern can change from day to day, depending on the weather, the products you use, how its cut, etc.  What's more important are things like porosity, strand thickness and density.

    Thankyou! Thats true, my hair is really Changing right now (curl patern) because before it was looser and im planning to cut my hair into layers because my hair is thick and heavy (it’s getting way too long lol) and it pulls down the curls. I have low porosity, medium thickness and high density. What Products are you currently using?

    @CurlyJK I would say your curls look like they could be type 4, yes! Going by https://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types/coily then I'd wager you're a 4a. With products you might be able to achieve some tight ringlets!

    @Talitha96 I would say your curls are a 2c/3a! Your routine seems to be good, judging by the second photo. My curls are a 2b/2c and I use the Desert Essence coconut conditioner, Lush's R&B hair moisturiser and sometimes a Kinky-Curly Curling Custard (gel). I have yet to upload photos, they're all on my phone and I'm typing on the PC. And like @Guide 65  said, figuring yout your hair density, porosity and how thick the individual hairs are is indeed important.
