New curlie here!!

I need help typing my curls. I *think* I’m either 3a or 3b. I have thick, dense low porosity hair. My hair is currently pretty long so I don’t have a ton of root curl but when it’s shorter it’s very curly from root to tip. My ringlets seem to be inbetween chalk and sharpie size. My curls tend to get tighter when they dry but also unclump and frizz.

    Most folks seem to have more than just one curl texture and it can sometimes vary based on circumstances (hair routine, length, etc.) but from what I see here I think mostly 3A with some 3b. Hope this helps!
