Is my hair 2a or 2b?

Hey! I was wondering what my hair type is. It gets really poofy, especially in the heat. I was also wondering if anyone could give me advice on how to tame it. Thanks! Also, if you can't really tell in the picture, I could upload another.

Hi! I think it's great that you've narrowed you hair type down to wavy hair because I can see why that would be confusing for you. A common misconception is that hair types are categorized based on how coarse or thin they are instead of the actual curl pattern. Your hair appears to have an extremely wavy and unruly curl pattern, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I have straight/2a hair so I will tell you right now that you're hair isn't 2a because 2a hair has a much straighter look to it. I'm not a pure 2a since I have a lot of straight hair, but even pure 2a hair would be straighter, not have any curls and wouldn't be very unruly. I think that your hair by itself has a 2c curl pattern but because it starts  a little below your eyes, you also have some 2b characteristics. I'd say your hair is a coarse 2b-2c.
From the picture, it looks like a 2b to me! :)
