I definitely see waves in there, so probably not 1s. I think you're a 2a on the cusp of 2b as some of the waves look like they could be 2b. So, 2a/2b would be my guess.

Because your hair is damaged by straightened and dyeing, it's really hard to give you an accurate typing. At the present time it looks to be about 2a, but as the damage grows out and is replaced by healthy hair, you may actually turn out to be wavier or even curly. I would revisit this in about a year and see if your hair has changed as you trim off the damage.

If your still unsure there's a diagram of hairtypes on a thread, "Visual hair-typing with numbers". I haven't figured out how to link threads into posts yet. I used the search bar and typed "hairtype numbers" and it popped up. Hope this helps!

Sorry my kindle isn't working right, I cant edit!

I meant to say for searching, "hairtype by numbers" and it should bring the thread up.

I think it is 2a. I am a 2b and a little wavier than you.
