Pictures finally!... What am I?

After years of lurking and several months of being an active member on this great site, I've finally gotten around to posting some pics. Can anyone give me some ideas on what hair type you think I might be? TIA!

Type: Course & thick. According to everyone's input, 2c w/ 3a potential.
Color: Brown w/ highlights & annoying grays which I color.
Length: Past shoulders w/ layers.
Issues: Dryness, knots & more dryness!
Poo: Deva Lo-Poo 1 x week, Clarify 1-2 x month
CO Wash: Suave Tropical Coconut (but looking for something else b/c I suspect protein issues)
Condish: GVPCB, LVPNG
Leave-Ins: Was loving KBB Milk & Nectar, but overused them. Usually just leave-in some of what I CO with.
Styling: Biolage Gelee
I would actually say your hair wants to be 3a and I see some 3b underneath. It looks like it wants to be curlier!!!

Have you tried plopping with product? That is what has helped my front/crown area soooo much.

ETA - I have been a member since '01 and just put my first pics up this month....
3b, and increasingly c pieces... my curls will always be a little confused, but that is just fine!

I would say a 2 with a lot of potential for full 3a. I think finding the right products and routine will bring out a lot more curl. Plopping and diffusing upside down should give you some help with the top. Maybe a good trim to get some of the weight off of the those curls underneath might help, too. Your hair is very pretty.

Aha! Ok, so I wasn't too far off the mark. Thanks!

I went through a plopping phase but then I got a bit lazy. Maybe I need to give it a go again. I was thinking of giving those clips things a try too.

Awww msgiblet, thank you! Blame it on PMS, but I just got a little teared up at your compliment. I can't even remember the last time my hair was called pretty!
