Default Having a hard time figuring out my hair type..

Could anyone help me?
P.S. I Have no product on my hair in these photos, I just wet it to prepare to do a style. In these pictures my hair is a little damp but its basically dry for the most part.

It looks like a mixture of 3b to 4a. Do you straighten your hair with heat? If so, I have found that certain parts of my hair have loosened as a result. I have really limited my heat.

It looks like you are 4a, with some looser curls in the front.

My understanding is that Andre's hair typing system was meant for curls in their dry state, so ... Adjusting for the fact that wet hair changes appearance of curl, I'd say you're a 4a.
