I'm a college student and I'm growing out my hair long for the first time. The problem is I don't know the curl type. Some of the hair toward the crown of my head is a little curlier, but honestly, I don't know if I fit into a specific group. Anyone who can help me identify the curl type would be greatly appreciated. Below I attached picture after I had gotten out the shower and dried t so its a little damp. I don't really do much to it besides condition it in the shower so there is no product in it. My hair is about 1.5 inches all around maybe a centimeter shorter on the sides.  Once again any help would be appreciated.
