You might actually want to hold off until you've been doing CG for a while and then assess what your curl pattern is. I lot of people find that it takes a few weeks of doing CG for their hair's true curl pattern to fully emerge. (Take a look at the Before and After CG Photos thread to see what I mean: Post your before & After CG pics).

And ITA with others who pointed out that knowing your hair properties is really important for figuring out how to care for your hair correctly (i.e. product ingredients to look for/avoid, routines, etc). But for me anyway, also knowing hair type (2B, 3C, 4A, etc.) helps when considering hairstyles. I'll see a hairstyle I like but then I consider whether my particular curl pattern will produce the same look, something similar, or 'not-even-close'. HTH.
