You look like 3b to me..... I could make a comment to one of the posters above, but do not wish to make this into a race thread.
Whatever works for your hair is just fine! If you find something and it works for you, it doesn't matter whether it's CG or not, as long as you're treating your hair with respect. You do look like you could use a little more moisture though.
And since your hair is a lot like mine.... it'll grow out more then down, though it will start growing .... down-ish to an extent once it gets long enough.
