Here's a link to CJ Marsha's blog on texture and porosity: Curl Junkie - Natural Hair Care for all types of Curly Hair!: My 2 cents on Protein/Texture/Porosity/Moisture Balance! :-) There are "visuals" to help you determine your texture. It would be very difficult for us to tell you from a picture.

Texture is whether you hair is fine, medium or coarse. You're talking about curl type, not texture. While the tighter the curl, the more fragile and dryer the hair, it's really not as important as hair properties like texture and porosity. Hair type can change more easily.
