Confused about what my type is...is it possible for a type to change in a lifetime? Here are images at different times--my routine hasn't really changed (but obviously the length has). What do you think? Am I making this too hard?

Hi, swampdiamonds! It's hard to tell curl type from a picture. There are so many things to take into account. These links were really helpful to me when I was struggling to figure things out:
Curly Hair Tips, Styles & Products - NaturallyCurly
3B, fine, normal to low porosity
Modified CG since June 2010
HGs: FSG, anything with glycerin, Tresemme Naturals conditioner, Curls Like Us cloths, satin pillowcases.
Curl type is relatively unimportant for anything but haircuts and styles because it's transient. I never used products until I started lurking on nc.com. Once I learned to use product and good technique, my hair went from winter wavy/summer 3a to looking like my signature picture every day.

It's mostly about the hair properties. mhen76 gave you some good links to help you determine yours.
3a (Corkicelli), highlighted, fine, low porosity

HGs: Anything Sevi; Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Curlycue ReNew and Coil Jam; homemade FSG and okra gel; soap bars; UFD Curly Magic; Botanical Spirits Jellies, CJ Repair Me, Aloe Fix

Looks like a 2C to me.

Current length: tailbone
Goal length: mid-thigh (wet)
3A/2C M iii med por, high elast

Clarify: Nivea
Lo-poo: Nature's Gate
CW: Elvive Volume Collagen
RO: EO Keratin, Desert Essence Raspberry

LI: Elvive volume collagen, KCKT
Seal: Grapeseed oil
Gel: Studioline

PT: EO Keratin co
DT: RO+oils
Hairgrowth stim.: JBCO+EVCO

Thanks, I appreciate the suggestions! I'd read all of this information, but still felt confused.
