Your hair looks very heat damaged, the curl pattern is nearly non existent. I'd say you could be a 3b or 3c but your hair needs a lot of TLC before you can figure it out.

I'd say a 3a or 3b, but since your hair is currently dry and damaged, the curls may tighten up a lot as their health returns.

Measure the curl diameter of your healthiest curls. 3a's have about 1 inch wide curls, 3b's have about 1/2 inch wide curls, and 3c's have about 1/4 inch wide curls.

2c, F/M, ii, med porosity, good elasticity, APL, silvery dark brown.

From what I see, are 3A. But it looks very damaged, your hair is almost straight.
