What kind of curls do I have?

Can someone help me determine what type of curls I have?

    I'm still new to this but it looks like a 3b/3c
    2 b/c :: slight protein sensitivity :: med/coarse texture :: normal porosity

    I'd say 3b/3c too and they are absolutely beautiful.

    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Favorites: Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.

    I'm not sure about the hair type (still learning it myself!), but just had to say that your curls are to-die-for!!!
    Type: Course & thick. According to everyone's input, 2c w/ 3a potential.
    Color: Brown w/ highlights & annoying grays which I color.
    Length: Past shoulders w/ layers.
    Issues: Dryness, knots & more dryness!
    Poo: Deva Lo-Poo 1 x week, Clarify 1-2 x month
    CO Wash: Suave Tropical Coconut (but looking for something else b/c I suspect protein issues)
    Condish: GVPCB, LVPNG
    Leave-Ins: Was loving KBB Milk & Nectar, but overused them. Usually just leave-in some of what I CO with.
    Styling: Biolage Gelee

    I'd say 3b too... maybe a few 3a strands in there
    3b, and increasingly c pieces... my curls will always be a little confused, but that is just fine!

    To me that looks 3b with some 3a. 3c curls are a lot smaller.

    It's kind of hard to tell, but from what I see, 3b and amazingly beautiful! :smile:
