Krissy, your hair looks pretty to me and healthy, but of course it's hard to tell exactly from pictures.

I think your hair is more like 3c than the curl types you suggested. I've always thought 3c should be one of the easiest to curl (but I often want something other than my 2c/3a curl type haha!). Curl envy.

You might want to check some of the other forums like 3b and 3c for suggestions and post there. Many curlies think that the properties of your curls (like porous or not porous) are just as important as the curl type. The properties help you figure out what products to try.

In the meantime, try posting a description of your method and we'll see if we can make good suggestions. Describe what products you use and your technique for styling your hair. Be encouraged - it takes a while to figure it out but it's worth it.
2/c Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift
