Can someone please help me type my natural hair? It would be greatly appreciated.

I have been natural since birth but I just let go of the flat iron four months ago. I'm really having a difficult time typing my hair. It seems to have hardly any definition. Usually, I shampoo and condition my hair and do a twist down every week. The first picture is from taking the front of my hair down from twists. I had the twists in for two or three weeks before I took them down. My hair stylist had put some of Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding in my hair while she was twisting it. The second picture is of my hair when I separated and finger detangled it with Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding after I did my routine shampoo and conditioner. When I slept on it, it became very packed to the back of my head. In the five pictures in between, I refreshed my hair from my twist down with Marc Anthony's Repairing Sulfate-Free Macadamia Oil Conditioner and a spray bottle. It is still damp but very soft to the touch and slightly finger detangled. However, I won't be going out any time soon.The picture with many emojis was of my freshly washed hair on September 18th. The next day, Carol's Daughter's leave-in had already been applied and dried from the day before. The last picture is from yesterday's twist down that I had taken out four days prior. Thank you all for taking the time to read my post.

The 1st,3rd to 7th, and 10th pictures can't really be used for hair typing because the twist manipulation alters the hair type. The 8th picture is also really hard to tell from because the hair appears very wet which weighs down and alters the curl also. Based on the 2nd picture, the hair seems like a 3c to me, but, based on the 9th, it seems as though your hair might be heat damaged, which could also loosen the curl type. Heat damage would make sense if you've been flat ironing your hair this whole time :\Truthfully, 4 months is kind of early to tell what your hair type is when transitioning. I would wait a few more months. If the hair is the same, it might be 3c or higher (higher because your current hair length weighs down the curl).
