Trying to figure out if I'm a 3a, 2c mix or ?

When I first signed up on this forum my hair was not in the best condition. At the time I think I was a 2b or 2c. Well it's been 2 years and I've been mostly CG. Since then I've had a baby and my hair seems thinner than before, but I can see now that my hair is curlier than what it used to be, although I'm still not sure of my curl type. I have thin hair, underneath I can get nice curls, and on top my hair is more wavy. So my guess is 3a mixed with 2c?

Also, what products work best on thin hair? Right now I've been experimenting with different combos, aloe+CK+Recoil, leave-in+CK+Recoil, aloe+recoil, and lately aloe+CK+Paul Mitchell Conditioning Mousse. The leave-ins I've tried are Giovanni Direct, Shea Moisture Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner, and Profound Beauty Hush Time-Out Treatment. Sometimes I seal with JoJoba and sometimes I don't. I usually get similar results, and always air dry my hair. I've also been jaw-clipping to get more volume at the roots. I'd like a little more hold, so would gel be too heavy on my hair?

Thanks everyone!

My hair curls in a similar manner and I'm also more wavy at the roots. I consider myself 3A. Especially since my hair does have the potential to spring up a lot when the weather is just right. Also I have thicker stranded hair and I still consider most gels to be a little heavy. (I prefer the light hold of curl creams and jellies.) However, I think I haven't figured out how to use gels yet. Styling technique, you know. I think it's a matter of watering them down so they're not so, I don't know, harsh.

I think a lot of wavies tend to use mousse followed by gel actually. Not that you're wavie. But since you say you'd like more hold and volume they tend to be into that. And I've been trying to read up to help my mother who is a 2b/2c.

DEFINITELY 3A. It's closer to 3B than to 2C :)

Thanks everyone on all the replies. Helps a lot! I'm definitely going to try a jelly to see how that works.:bounce:
