Default What curl type am I, and why?

My curls are very soft and when washed with cold water, they are very loose, shiny, and frizz-free. In photos, my curls always seem clumped up and kinky, however in reality my curls are barely frizzy at all and are very seperated, with the occasional twirly curls. Can anyone tell my my hairtype, and why? Thanks

I would call it at 3b, looking at it, 'cause it is nice regular curls and very consistent for being that long, and they are nice big shape.

Is it springy-boingy-bigger-tighter when it's shorter?

Very pretty BTW

Dear Robynn, Robin is probably correct.
I just wanted to say thanks for the HUGE dose of curl envy. Sigh! That is some stunningly beautiful hair.
Dear Santa...

Lol thanks IAgirl. You're right, Robin is probably correct. Now I don't feel so lost about my hair, tee-hee.

I don't know what my hair type is, either. I don't even have a picture to show, so I'll describe it. It's medium-textured hair with definite curls, but only some of them curl at the bottoms. I wish I had a picture of them. I can't tell if I'm Corkscrew curly or Bottecelli curly; maybe I'm both?
I use the Totally Twisted line from Herbal Essences: Conditioner/gel daily; shampoo and Wella In-Depth treatment once a week.
