Default Help! Am I a 2C or a 3A

I can't seem to figure out which one I am: Wavy Whirly, or Curly Twirly.
I've been low poo for a while, using only a low sulfate shampoo about once a month to get rid of buildup. Even then, I still do a coconut oil treatment before hand and use a shampoo that's mixed with argan oil.

This is my hair dried normally, with only a bit of leave-in conditioner and shea butter put in when wet, then plopped.

I've started using different products, so my texture has changed a touch.

Sorry that picture of me is a bit rubbish. My glasses were practically falling off my face.
