I applaud the spirit of your diagram. I like how organized you are

I want to give you some kind of accurate opinion, but I think you are right to question whether or not it's too early to say what your curl pattern is. I think it is too early since you recently relaxed your hair.

Unfortunately you will need to cut off all your relaxed hair to know what your natural curl type and texture definitely is. IMHO, try to resist relaxing your hair again, if you want to transition to natural. Transitioning can be challenging, but once you give yourself a chance to work with just your natural hair, you may just fall in love with it (many of us have)

I transitioned for 11 months and I thought I knew what my natural curl pattern was going to be like. Eleven months is about 6-7 inches of new growth, so I had a significant amount. When I cut off my relaxed ends last week, I was completely surprised with what my natural texture looked like.

The relaxed ends really change the way that your natural hair looks. So give yourself some time until you cut it off or at least have some more growth so you can approximate.
