What kinda of wavy am I?

Hello fellow CGs. I'm a bit new to the CG method (picked up the book about a week and a half ago) and so far have limited the use of shampoo to 2-3 times a week. My routine is low poo ([buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-LowPoo-p-54.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacurl-lowpoo]Deva low poo[/buylink] on the days I shampoo) or co-wash (VO5 vanilla mint tea condish) and condition (DevaCurl at the moment with some TJ Nourish, EMBC, and TJ Refresh awaiting their turn in my product drawer). After squeezing out some water, I apply the Sallys generic PM the Conditioner and Astroglide gel (I'm tempted to try CK but am trying to go CG the more econo way) and scrunch in either: LOOB and some la bella curl gel (pink), RR and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Confident-Coils-Styling-Solution-p-116.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-confident-coils-styling-solution]CCSS[/buylink], or HE SMU mousse. I plop for 30 min and will either diffuse or air dry depending on the weather.

Well, to make the long story short :sleepy4: , what kind of 2 am I? I'm thinking 2B/C with possible 3A? (I've got some bangs and they are a trial to tame without looking like a funky orphan Annie at the hairline)

    My guess is 2b or 2c. 2c will have waves with a couple of spirals. 3a will have mostly spirals. Very pretty hair, by the way.
    2C wavy with some spirals. CG since April 07. Medium texture and porosity.

    I agree too. Especially with the comment that you have beautiful waves. And the color is gorgeous!
    Hair type: Completely confused: mostly 3a, some 3b parts, and even 2 in places; very fine and thin.
    Products: Elucence clarifying & MBC; CK, F/X Curl Booster Fixative Gel (when I can find it)

    Thanks everyone! It helps me figure out the best routine for my hair. And thanks for the compliments on the color - it's natural. :toothy10:

    Your hair is beautiful, perfect for your layered cut. Reminds me of Jennifer Aniston's in the movie "Along Came Polly."
    2b/3a.
