need help on hair type.

My hair is a 3c at the ends, but at the roots, it looks a lot more kinky, like a 4a. My hair is 100% natural since I cut all of the damaged permed hair. Is my hair still a 3c?

My hair actually seems similar to that in some places. It loosens/ curls a little bigger at the roots than it does at the ends. I've always considered it a 4a though. I base this on the thought that I assume the curl that most people look at when determining curl diameter is the end of their hair.
