Default Any help please?

So I just wanna know my hair type, also I'm about to go buy myself new products to use on my hair and I've heard about the shea moisture products, and just wanna know everyone else's experience with those products.

Here is a pic of my hair to determine hair type
Any help please?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1372089778.124031.jpg

I know I have fine strands for sure, what I'm not sure about is what my porosity is and if I'm protein sensitive, I'm still experimenting.

Your hair properties and dew points/ humidity are far more important than your curl pattern in choosing ingredients and products.

I love Shea Moisture. The Coconut and Hibiscus line is the one for me.

I have all type 3 hair, normal texture, high porosity. I LOVE the Shea moisture line. The smoothie & curl milk help keep me frizz free in this hellacious TX humidity. I also use Softee conditioning gel on top of both. My next wash & go I will try the gel alone & see if that will keep me frizz free.

It looks like you got natural curls, just like one of my friends. He used Shea Moisture and said it's perfect for him. I love the smell of it.
