Can you help me determine my curl pattern?

Hello, I became natural a year and 3 months ago.  My hair will spiral into curls but the curls are smaller then the pencil width I read for 3c hair. I’ve attached a picture below. Can you help me determine my pattern? Thank you.

    I wouldn't take the types description so literally. Plus, you can have multiple patterns of hair :smile: To me it looks like something between 3C/4A, but if your hair are healthy and defined (and they seem to be), it shouldn't matter so much.

    That curl is perfect looking<3 It looks like you have 3c closer to your roots and 4a the farther you go down the hair. Congrats on being a year natural!

    I am just starting out with th curly girl method and I’m so lost! Can someone help?? I believe I have 2b/2c hair, low porosity very thick course hair. Where do I start and what products do you use? I’m trying to ditch my bun, I’ve started losing my hair due to traction alopecia, and trying to embrace my natural hair and have no clue where to start!
