I'm having problems identifying the type of my hair. Can anyone help me?
I sure I'm in the 4 category but a, b or c ?

All these photos show my hair with only water in it and about 70% dry.

(The second photo was a twist out!)

You seem to be a 4B with a little heat damage, or are you transitioning?
Yeah, my hair was being straightened for about 8 months and my hair got damaged a lot. Im trying to grow it out but I dont know if I should just cut it or not
I like the hair in the last picture. It looks 4b to me..but slightly damaged a bit. If you don't want to cut it all off.. just cut a little bit at a time and then do maybe twist outs, braid outs, roller sets, bantu knot outs to sort of hide the damaged parts!

It looks about 4b. A friend of mine had a bit of heat damage too, but saved it by conditioning..So, you might be able to recover from the heat damage without losing the length by doing deep-treatments every time you shampoo or co-wash.
