Default what is my hair type?

I used to have a texturizer and now it has grown out, so I am trying to find out what type hair I have so I can change my hair routine to suit it. I think I have 3c hair.

The quality of the picture isn't that good, but yeah, it looks like 3c. Maybe some 4a too.

This is my hair:
Honestly, I can't tell. I can't distinguish much of a curl pattern at all---is there some sort of damage to it? I see some s-curves that might be 3c, but the rest of it is almost indistinguishable.

I'd say be gentle with your hair (lots of DT's, protective styling (if it works for you), etc), and slowly trim off the heat damage. While some heat damage is reparable, the fact that you don't show a curl pattern yet may be indicative of some irreparable damage. In other words, you'll have to treat those ends as if they're relaxed---moisturize nicely and slowly cut 'em off.

And, just in case you were wondering, most people don't gain definition after the hair dries.... (they usually lose it, especially without a gel).

Still looks between a 3c and 4a to me. Also looks kind of fine? (As in, the strands). I'd definitely look into density, porosity, reaction toward protein, and strand width before curl pattern though....

I see mostly 3c with some 3b and 4a. Some parts of your hair are too loose to be considered 3c -which is what I would call 3b.
