1 Month Since Big Chop + Hair Type???

I cut off my relaxed ends May 1st after an 8 month long transitioning process. When I first chopped, my hair was obviously shocked. I think the only portion of my hair that had a noticeable curl pattern was the hair toward my nape area. But, as time has passed, I've slowly began to notice that other parts of my hair are curling slightly, too.

The most I've come to understand about my hair is that my individual strands are fine (kind of hard to see shed strands in the light), but my hair overall is dense/thick. I also still have a few tiny straight ends I need to take care of.

Although I think it may be a little too early for me to start hair typing, since it hasn't really been that long since I've chopped, if any of you guys had to guess, what would you say my curl pattern is? I'm pretty sure I fall somewhere in the type 4 category.

Thanks! The attached pictures are my hair post wash with NO product.

From what I can see, I'd say 3c/4a.
CG since Dec. 2013
3b/c ~ fine ~ high porosity ~ low density
Cleansing: Loreal EverCurl Hydracharge Shampoo
RO: Suave Naturals Coconut, Suave Professionals Shea Butter & Almond Conditioner
Styler: Suave Professionals Captivating Curls Mousse, Rave 4x Unscented Hairspray
*less is more*
I would say 3c/4a also. Your curls look like mine. 😉 so pretty.
I'm no good at typing into the 4s, but wow! Very pretty hair.
3a/b, F, normal porosity

Wash with either Suave Tropical Coconut, As I Am, or CJ Daily Fix
Condition with STC or Yes to Blueberries and detangle with Denman, rinse very lightly (baptismal rinse)
Add LAL gel, either Sport or Wet Look, scrunch with flour sack towel, and plop
Diffuse 5 minutes, then air dry
