Which hair type am I?

I am new to the website am trying to determine my hair type so I can make it look better. I tried looking through old posts but it got overwhelming. I know my hair is medium density, medium width, and normal porosity. I just want to know what curl pattern it seems that I have so I can monitor my progress. I looked at photos but couldn't decide if I'm 2A, 2B, or 2C.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I couldn't get a good photo of the back of my hair. But here are two side views:

Always wash upside down.

You have very pretty hair though. I love the color and it looks very soft. I would not worry so much about the labeling but I think 2B-2C.

Thanks dusalocks. I just co-washed and put in a little leave in that day. No gels or anything else. It was my third day of CG. I don't have any before that because I round brushed and blow dried it pretty often.

At least you gave me hope for a curlier future once it gets a little longer. (currently growing out a bad cut from July)
oh geez, I guess I just cant see pics on my ipad. duh.
I think 2a/b But I think over time and if your hair grows it will get curlier. That's sort of how mine is.
