Am I a 2a, or 2b? Help

I just started embracing my waves. I have been straightenig my hair every day for 13 yrs. The only products I use to style my hair are Shea moisture style milk, curl keeper and sometimes a pea sized amount of la looks gel. What would you say my hair type is?

    Hi :)  Welcome to Curl talk ! 
    I would say that your hair type is 2B, but it's temporary because you just started and your hair suffered with the straightener !
    It will improve soon ! And I love your hair color beautiful golden blonde ! :smiley:

    I would say you are 2b heading toward 2c. Your hair looks a little dry right now, and once you get the moisture levels up, you might find that your curl pattern gets tighter.

    My hair is dry. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix that

    Try deep conditioning once a week. For high porosity hair, try sealing in moisture by layering products. This can be done for fine hair as well.

    It will get wavier/curlier as the chronically straightened hair grows out. Maybe a couple of layers will take some weight off and you could see a more curly texture.
