Default My Hair Type Help!

I know a lot of people ask this but what hair type do you think I am? I'm thinking 2c. My hair is extremely thick (most stylists I go to comment I have about 3 heads worth of hair). I see the S pattern (I think?). Unlike true blue curlies my hair doesn't seem to respond too badly to occasional shampooing and it seems if I use too many products or too much it makes my hair too poofy. Sorry for the lousy pic. I haven't had a cut in 2 months. My hair is a bit dry. I'm trying to come up with a good routine. I'm pretty happy with my current routine but trying to find ways to add moisture to my hair and retaining that soft feel. Oh and I have an order for Curl Keeper on the way! Cannot wait! Any help is appreciated!!!!

Sorry I'm an idiot when it comes to figuring out had to update pics! I just added it. I apologize for the stupid picture. My friend and I are always teasing when people post bathroom pics that we intentionally take pics of ourselves and post them as jokes! I have a hair appt on Tuesday. I am hoping this girl (who also has super curly thick hair) is the answer to my prayers!

Hmmm...it's hard to see your hair really well in that pic, but I think you are on the right track with 2c. But determining your hair properties is more important than curl pattern in terms of product choices.
