Density can determined by measuring the circumference of your hair in a ponytail.

For texture you can look at the individual strands and see if they're nearly invisible. I actually used a micrometer to measure couple individual strands.

Here's a helpful blog that will explain all of this much better than I just did: Pedaheh's Hair Blog: April 2012

Ok so I think I'm a 2c/medium/normal volume according to the awesome site you suggested! I bought some suave naturals coconu conditioner and I also have some natures gate tea tree conditioner. I'm trying to find other products to use but I don't really know what I'm looking for. Any suggestions?
