Is my hair 3B or 3C? (I used to think it was 3C but now I’m not sure.)

    Welcome!  I'd say it's 3c.  Nice curls!

    I agree with Cindy.curls. Your hair pattern seems to be 3c with some 3b. A mixture.

    Pattern: 3C/4A 
    Characteristics: (Spongy/Coarse/Curly Kinky)
    Porosity: High
    Density: Medium
    Hair Width: Medium Sized Strands
    Elasticity: Medium Elasticity

    SL - APL - BSL - MBL - WL - TBL

    My hair is armpit length when silk pressed (so close to BSL).
    Natural state: awkward stage; shoulder length (front is above chin length and back is almost shoulder length).
    Goal: MBL
