Almost 2 years post relaxer and I still don't know what my hair type is

I have been trying to master taking care of my hair properly for almost 2 years. Every style I try, I don't get the desired results. I feel like my hair is always dry and breaking off. I am new to this site, could someone please once and for all tell me my hair type? And some techniques that I could try? I've attached a picture of my hair freshly washed without any product without and with flash

It looks like a healthy Type 4.
Your hair in the first picture looks 4a, but it also seems pretty wet. The other picture seems a little less wet and I'd say a 4a/4b guess if I had to guess a more specific type 4.
Your hair appears to be 4A from the photos provided.
