Unhappy Figuring out Curl type for the proper products??

I've taken the test on here to figure out my curl type, I seem to be in between a 2C and a 3A. So I'm having trouble deciding which products I need to use to transition to all natural products.

On the bottom I have thick tight ringlets about the same size as my pinky that are sometimes difficult to straighten, and shrink to about an inch shorter than the rest of my hair. On the top I have sometimes well shaped ringlets about the size of sidewalk chalk that easily loose their curl. But I also have a few spots (at the very base of my neck and a few spots up front) that are almost completely straight with very little wave.

What hair type regimen or products should I use?

Welcome! Choose your products based on your hair properties and dew points/ humidity not curl pattern. Check out the information in the stickies on the Newbies board and on the Live Curly Live free website.
