I think I'm a 3a...?

I've been trying to figure out what type of hair I have, and I think I am a 3a with some 2b/c tendencies, but I'm not sure.

I unforturnatly don't have a picture of my hair, but I was able to find a pic online that looks almost exactly like what I have.

I have been having such a hard time b/c all the pictures that describe 3a (longer hair = more curly) don't looke like mine!

Thanks for your help!
