Default Type my curl! HELLLP!

Hi ladies. I'm new around here. I don't know what type of curl pattern I have! My hair is fine, thin and medium porosity. Can someone tell me what category/categories my curls fall into?

Can't wait to jump into this awesome community of curlies!

I'd guess 2C, Wavy Whirly, maybe a combination 2C/3A?

Thanks! That what I was thinking too. I'm just getting into this, so I'm trying to figure out how curl pattern, porosity, density and elasticity play into finding the right products. My hair has started thinning in the past year or so and I hate losing the volume that I once had. Trying to fix my hair!

Not that I'm an expert, but it looks like 2c/3a to me too

haha Thanks, I'm far from it though!

I've been co-washing with either VO5 kiwi lime or Suave Coconut and using Tresemme Naturals Moisturizing as my RO (leaving a little bit of it in). I make sure that I get my hair really wet and squish the water/conditioner in a lot. Then, with my hair still wet, I rake in my LI (just tried Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Milk this morning and I think I like it, otherwise I just use the suave or the tresemme) and then rake in a good amount of gel (just tried LA Looks Sport, posted a thread on this today). Scrunch the heck out of it, blot and plop while I'm doing my makeup, take it out and scrunch in a little more gel on my ends, clip/diffuse my roots, and let my hair air dry on the way to work. When it's try, I flip my head over and scrunch out all the crunch and wiggle my fingers in my roots to give them lift. It sounds like a lot when I type it all out... lol it's really not that bad though!
