Hi! So now I'v been going CG for about five monts, but I've really never cared to figure out what curl pattern I have... What do you think? 2C?
This is what my hair can look like on a good day:

Wow, beautiful curls!! Definitely 2c though hair typing is usually done with hair that was washed then simply left to dry - no manual manipulation or products to enhance the curls. Is your hair in the photo just naturally dried ? Regardless, it's beautiful! Whatever you're doing is working great!
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
Thank you so much!! I've scrunched my hair in these pictures (washing day) and then left it to air dry. I think I had some flax seed gel in too, I'm not sure! I'll take a picture next time I wash it and compare am I allowed to scrunch it or at least squeeze the water out? Leave in-conditioner? ^^
Your hair is beautiful! I bet with products and diffusing its more like a 2c/3a because I see some nice spirals and tubes in there. I list my hair type with products. I think most people do on here, whether that's correct or not. Without anything in my hair, it's impossible to type - unless frizzy poofball is a new category! Lol

I would say 2C/3A. I don't type my hair without styling either. My hair with no product or scrunching is an undefined mess. If I wash, finger comb, and air dry it's not curly, not wavy, not straight, not frizzy or poufy really, just nothing, it just hangs there all sad-like. It's very thin and flyaway and with very little curl or curl definition. Some people's hair looks about the same naked vs styled, maybe a little more controlled styled, but my naked hair (while it feels fine and moisturized) looks NOTHING like it does styled. Maybe that's a sign I should change something I'm doing? I donno. Naked it's like a cloud. Styled (even with just KCKT and some scrunching) it's 2c/3a.

Since it doesn't take me much manipulation while styling - I don't twirl pieces or anything I just scrunch my product in very wet hair and diffuse - I'm not forcing my hair to do something drastically different. So I type it once I've styled it.

Beautiful hair btw!!
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Yes I would call that 2c, think you are right on.
