Not quite sure about my hair type

Hey ya'll, whats going on?

So, I recently started my hair journey over this November 2nd, and I'd say I've made some really great progress in these short few weeks (I'll show you). However, I'm having a bit of a hard time identifying what hair type I have because I just recently big chopped (I've NEVER worn my natural hair until now, 21 years later).

I'd like to think that I have 100% 4c hair, but I think it might be a mix between 4b/4c because I have SOME curls, but definitely not enough to be 4a. Please help me out, ladies!

First picture is current (November 23rd), 2nd is a better look at my head, and 1st pic is big chop day (November 2nd)!

Your Natural Hair is NOT a Fad

Wearing natural hair is not a fad. It is not a fashion trend. It's the natural hair you were born with. So why can't you wear it?
Don't believe the negative hype..
