What is my hair texture?

Hello. I'm not sure what my hair texture is and I was hoping someone could help me. My hair is midback length, shrinks past my shoulders, and makes crochet hook sized curls about an inch from my roots. I pretty sure it's 4a but wanted to get another opinion. Thanks in advance!

    It's hard to say just based on a description.  It would be much easier if you could post a picture.  You don't have to show your face - just the back of your head would work, or use something to blank our your face.  But your curl pattern really isn't important.  What matters more is the porosity, density and hair strand thickness.  Those can help you decide what products to use.
