3b??!

I can't quite figure out my curl type NOW after heat damage. I'm pretty sure it used to be 3b when I was younger and barely did much to my hair. Here are some pics of hair hair stages/journey. Can you please help me decipher my natural curl type and my current damage curl pattern?


My gorgeous long hair as a young girl - 3B?


In HS before I began to obsessively flat iron my hair - 3B?


Right before college flat ironing on a regular weekly basis after roller sets and using a heat protector. I should've stopped then! - 3B/3A?


In college the beginning of noticeably different looser curl pattern - 3A?


My attempt to go curly 2 months ago lots of straight heat damaged ends




Curls now after my big chop are slowly reverting now that I'm going by the CG method using a mix of deva curl products along with KinkyCurly (also I have wavier/straight pieces in the front) - 3A?

Please help!!
Before, I would say your hair was 3b. Now, I think your hair is 2c-3a. Does your hair have spirals/corkscrews? If your hair looks like it has ringlets, your hair may be 3b. Here is a picture of my niece's 3b hair:


Your hair may just need some recovering from the heat damage. After a few months of going CG an using the right products, your hair may start to curl more. In the meantime, do more research and try out some products that can define curl. Good luck!
