I would have to say your a 3c with a little 4a mixed in. For your hairtype and hairtexture I would suggest you trying Blended Beauty's Happy Nappy Styles+Kick For Curls Spritz. Also Curl Junkie's Hibiscus & Banana Honey Butta Leave-In.

Hope this helps!

What everyone else said -- your hair looks like mixed 3c/4a, and very pretty. Do you typically brush down your hair and wear it out like your photos? Here are some products I use and like -- I am mostly 4a, hair around your length, with some 3c. I wear hair out 99%. Since I don't brush I need good texture definition:

Leave-in (very important for me) - Curl Junkie Hibisucus & Banana Honey Leave in (fine) or Giovanni Direct Leave-in. Both excellent.

Styling or Styling combos:
--IC Fantasia Gel(blue for color-treated, not clear) with sparkalites (can use over a leave-in or styling cream)
--Curl Keeper under Blended Beauty Styling Butter cream (excellent, moisture-rich combo)
--Blended Beauty Styling butter cream with drugstore gel overlayered where needed - also excellent combo
--Curls Souffle with Curl Keeper (these go well together) - plump curls
--Curls Milkshake (alone or with a drugstore gel) - great for day 2+ hair and many folks use Milkshake as their leave-in

(Curl Keeper is a frizz reducer/eliminator, clear serum-like)

I get the best effect when I layer products.

your curl pattern is very pretty
My combo that I would suggest is a leave in like one of the Curl Junkie leave ins or the Kinky Curly Knot Today and a gel. I use and love Kinky-Curly Curling Custard I get better results with using it long term because it is all natural and doesnt build up. But you can try Fantasia IC over a leave in conditioner.
Or if you prefer something more buttery and heavy a lot of ladies like Blended Beauty Happy Nappy as SYB suggested or even Curls Whipped Cream I hear is good.

To answer your question when I brush conditioner in my hair and let it dry it looks like the second picture. If I shake it, like for a shake and go, it looks like the first picture. after conditioning I use a little whipped shea butter to keep it soft.

For control and curl definition I like Let's Jam Shining and Conditioning Gel. I know that I sound like a spokesperson but hey it gets the job done.
