I have no clue what type of hair I have (2a, 3b, etc). No matter how many pictures I look at I can't figure it out. Please tell me what you think it is.

Help!! What is my hair type??-image.jpg  
Hmm...it's hard to say for sure from your picture as I can't see all of your hair, but it looks like you may have a combination of 2b, 2c and maybe some 3a. It looks like your hair is very long, so you could have some curls that would spring up more if your hair was shorter (less weight to pull on the curl). But it looks to me like you have a mix of waves, whirls, and curls (welcome to the club!). I wouldn't worry too much about your curl pattern - it's the other properties that play a bigger role in how to care for and style your hair. And however you classify your "curl type" your hair is beautiful - and that's what counts

2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

2B/2C. You should ask the 2s! Do you know your properties yet? That's more important for most.
3A - C, HP, ME, HD. (Coarse, High Porosity, Medium Elasticity, High Density.)
